Mayer Building Company conveyed a small expansion at Dickie Brennan’s Bourbon House on December 21st 2012 in time for their Christmas rush. The project was unveiled for lunch service on the day of the New Orleans Bowl. It included converting an unused room, essentially an oversized janitor’s closet, into a full service Bourbon Bar, replete with custom cypress and glass millwork, cypress wainscotting, glazed faux finish walls, new lights, new custom cypress and tempered glass storefront, concrete flash patching and carpet, and re-location of the existing speakers and temperature controls. Our sister company, Guild Carpentry, was responsible for all of the beautiful millwork.
The storefront, which was reviewed by the HDLC, matches the existing storefront windows and panelled knee walls of the Astor Crown Plaza and the European style dining room of the Bourbon House.
The Dickie Brennan & Company’s Bourbon Society will host flights and tastings at this new top-notch alcove, but the new fit-out will also provide for a well-appointed waiting area.
The nice thing about this type of commercial construction is that when it occurs, Mayer Building Company adds value to our clients’ operations. Not only can this powerhouse restaurant add to its purview (and increase sales), but also the keenness of the timing couldn’t be better with all of the upcoming New Orleans events.

Recently our commercial construction project came to a successful completion, and we are open for business. I appreciate the efforts of Mayer Building Company in getting my premium coffee shop open early.
I brag about you and your people all of the time.. I get constant compliments on the building! Recently our commercial construction project came to a successful completion, and we are open for business. I appreciate the efforts of Mayer Building Company in building out our new offices on time and within budget.
Thanks again for a job well done! We have completed over 30 Cyclebars across the country in the past year. The New Orleans (Magazine Street) site was not only one of the best but working with Mayer exceeded all expectations. I look forward to future work with the Mayer Team.
Y’all did such a nice job. Thank you so much for your careful work. You’ve helped transform our space!
I just want to thank you and your staff for going above and beyond during this build out process. With us being in a different city, y’all have been awesome to work with. Y’all have accommodated every change within our construction window and have helped us greatly on things that couldn’t have gotten done without you and your staff’s help. Thanks so much. It is greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much for doing such a great job. The rooms look great and the inconvenience to us was minimal at worst. Your personnel was friendly and easy to work with. Fred was really great. We are very pleased with the result. Thank you and I hope to work with you again on another project.
I was concerned about doing a renovation at a place that was many states away from where I lived. I needed someone that I could count on and could handle every aspect of the renovation. I also required someone who was familiar with the permit requirements for an historical building in New Orleans….I would highly recommend Ryan Mayer to any potential client. I was extrememly pleased with the work he performed and would use him again for any additional contracting needs that I may have.
We are always excited to partner up with MBC to work on our new location developments or redesigns,
as we can always count on quality, timeliness, and most importantly, the right level of communication
in the client relationship.
As we grow City Greens, we look forward to working with the Mayer Building Company in the very near future.
It is with pleasure, and of my own initiative, I am writing this letter of gratitude
for the work you and your company performed at 4905-11 Magazine Street.
As the architect of that renovation, I worked closely with you, your superintendent
Fred Goodrow, and your staff during the months of construction. Your knowledge, experience, and good judgement, and that of your
employees, were critical in addressing these issues and contributed significantly
to the successful completion of the work.
Both the building owner and I are very proud of the results and are grateful to
you and your staff for a job very well done. I sincerely look forward to the next
time it is my good fortune to work with you.
