100 Men Hall is an historic structure built in 1922 as an open air screened meeting hall and later completely enclosed. An old cornerstone found on the property names a group called the 100 Men DB Association was responsible for the building.

This historic, 3,500 square foot building with 13-foot ceilings and a tin roof served for decades as a vibrant center for the black community. From the 1940's to the 1970's, this hall was a regular stop for many of the artists working on the famed “chitlin’ circuit”, a network of African American venues with many of the performers booked through New Orleans’s famed Dew Drop Inn. Some of the greatest names in rhythm and blues - King Floyd, Joe Tex, James Brown, Solomon Burke, Etta James, Ike and Tina Turner, Archie Bell and the Drells to name a few! The property is completely remodeled offering visitors a journey back in time.

Tours by appointment only. Admission: Donations Appreciated.
