Chartres House is your favorite neighborhood bar and Cajun restaurant located in the heart of the French Quarter. This is the corner where friends meet after a hard day’s work for a cold beer of a delicious traditional Cajun meal. This is a landmark where tour guides tell stories to visitors looking to soak in the history of New Orleans and its rich culture. This establishment is where natives and travelers alike feel at home while enjoying a delicious cocktail and a local dish in the courtyard, or at the balcony bar.
Right around the corner from St. Louis Cathedral, the building that is home to Chartres House has seen historic changes in the French Quarter. It has hosted Bohemian soirees, “made groceries” for its neighbors, and fallen victim to fires. Chartres House strives to embody both the history of yesterday and a homey ambiance with a friendly staff, traditional New Orleans dishes, and classic cocktails. So come join us at our French Quarter Cajun restaurant and bar for any special occasion, any day of the week for a great night on the town, or your first visit to New Orleans.
