About NOAC

The New Orleans Athletic Club is centrally located in New Orleans on the fringe of the French Quarter just minutes from the CBD, Marigny, Bywater, Metairie, and the West Bank. We are an exclusive club that offers many amenities including a library, full-service bar, salon, multiple exercise rooms, pool, half court basketball, spin room, yoga studio, and a complete line of plate-loaded equipment and free weights, wally ball, racquet ball, handball, and a dynamic human performance center!

Since its inception in 1872, the N.O.A.C. has been a landmark in the city of New Orleans and is the 2nd oldest health club in the United States. The building exemplifies its historical strengths with its well-preserved artifacts that adorn the walls. The club is steeped in tradition ranging from boxing to fencing, as well as card playing. The walls of Vaughan’s Pub still echo of days gone by with an occasional card game and a tasty adult beverage.

The N.O.A.C.’s clientele ranges from doctors and lawyers to poets, actors, musicians, and athletes. If you’re lucky, you may even bump into a celebrity or two while using the club. Our members have chosen to be a part of this community because they are given individualized attention, a thing seldom found in health clubs. We invite you to experience a private oasis in our spirited New Orleans. Only the New Orleans Athletic Club offers serenity and architectural significance with the most comprehensive workout facilities. Members don’t just “go to the gym”, they experience the club.
