  Welcome to El Club de Puerto Rico de Nueva Orleans




The Club of Puerto Rico of New Orleans was founded in 1960 by a small group of Puerto Ricans who established themselves in New Orleans at the beginning of the 1950s. The preservation of Puerto Rican traditions, cultural values, and the Spanish language among its residents and their descendants was the main goal of the group.

The membership of the club, a non-profit organization, has contributed greatly to the Hispanic community of New Orleans for the last forty-four years. In the past the club has brought to New Orleans some of the best artists from Puerto Rico.

In 1995 the local Spanish newspaper, "Aqui New Orleans", awarded the club one of its prestigious awards, Premio Aplauso, for the "most excellent club that has maintained its traditions and cultural heritage since its establishment."
