Built in 1928, The Calcasieu Marine National Bank is one of a group of buildings designed by the New Orleans architectural firm, Favrot and Livaudais, who, after a devastating fire in 1910, aided in rebuilding historic downtown Lake Charles.

The grand banking hall measures 36' x 110' and features twenty Corinthian pillars that highlight an eagle on each elevation. The original clock and bullet - proof glass still rest where the telephone switchboard operator once worked. Bronze sconces add subtle light, while magnificent chandeliers are suspended from a breathtaking ceiling. French windows of the director's room overlook the space.

The main vault's circular door is twenty - one inches thick. It weighs approximately twenty tons. The five ceiling fans in the space are original to the building. This area of the Calcasieu Marine National Bank proves perfect for wine tastings, martini bars, jazz luncheons, holiday parties, reunions, meetings, and more.

Extra amenities include a rotunda, a courtyard, a warming kitchen, and premium downtown parking.
Calcasieu Marine National Bank has received approximately 207 profile views in the last three months.
