Chartres House is your neighborhood bar and Cajun restaurant right in the heart of the French Quarter. This is the corner where friends meet for a cold beer after a hard day's work. This landmark is where tour guides tell tales to visitors looking to take in the history and rich culture of New Orleans. This establishment is where locals and travelers alike feel at home while enjoying local dishes and delicious cocktails in the courtyard or at the balcony bar.
Just a stone’s throw from St. Louis Cathedral, the location of Chartres House has witnessed many events in the history of the French Quarter. It has "made groceries" for its neighbors, fallen victim to fires, and hosted Bohemian soirees. Chartres House strives to embody both the history of yesterday and a home-like atmosphere with traditional New Orleans dishes, classic cocktails and a friendly staff. So come see us at our historic French Quarter Cajun restaurant and bar for any special occasion, your first visit to New Orleans, or just any day of the week for a great night on the town.
