Fidelity Bank to Open Garden District Branch in the Rink on Prytania Street


By: Tammy O'Shea

(New Orleans) – Fidelity, one of Louisiana’s most established banks, announced today plans to open a brand new banking branch in the heart of the Garden District in Uptown New Orleans at The Rink Shopping Center on Prytania Street. Officials are targeting an opening date of August 2021 for the new neighborhood-focused branch.

Fidelity, founded in 1908, will open the doors in August to its new community bank branch in The Rink at the corners of Prytania and Washington Streets in heart of Uptown. The newly-renovated 2,100-square-foot space will focus on more personalized banking for a true Uptown neighborhood experience.

The new Garden District Branch will join other New Orleans local business in The Rink such as Still Perkin’ Coffee Shop, Eleanor Farnsworth of Latter & Blum Realtors and Garden District Bookshop. Both, fully-automated solutions as well as full-service bankers will be available to service the needs of individual and business clients. Currently, Fidelity Bank has an ATM on-site at The Rink.

The Rink’s history dates back to 1884 when it was built as a roller rink and attraction for visitors to the Cotton Exposition.

“Our newly planned Garden District location will have a distinctly New Orleans feel and will have a heavy focus on neighborhood banking,” Fidelity Bank President and CEO Chris Ferris said. “We’re committed to building relationships throughout the area we service, and our entire banking team is excited to add this new location Uptown.”
