New World Landing is a complex located at 600 South Palafox Street that includes several meeting rooms and an inn. It was restored from a former box factory in 1983 by Arden and Kay Anderson. In late 2006, 600 South of Pensacola, a partnership of Jim Homyak, Matt Balka and Julie Lawson, purchased the complex from then-owner Jim Bachus. They added a wine and martini bar, 600 South, in 2007 and a renovated courtyard for live music and events in 2008.
There are three main banquet rooms on the north side of the New World Landing complex (adjacent to the parking lot).
The largest space in New World Landing, the Spanish Room is 4500 sq. ft. (45'x100') and can seat about 350. The Pensacola (Downtown) Rotary meets here every Tuesday.
The British Room, accessible from the parking lot on the north side, is 2750 sq. ft. (55' x 50') and can seat about 150.
The America Room is 2750 sq. ft. (55' x 50') and can seat about 150.
New World Hall
Each of the rooms in the New World Hall restaurant portion of New World Landing is named after a port city from the nations whose flags have flown over Pensacola.
The Barcelona Room is located on the northwest portion of the complex with large floor-to-ceiling windows that look out onto the courtyard. Originally a restaurant in 1983, it was reopened in June 2007 as the 600 South wine and martini bar.
New World Inn
The New World Inn at New World Landing is comprised of fourteen rooms and one suite, each of which named for a famous person from Pensacola's past. The inn manager is Victoria Coleman.
