Chartres House is your favorite neighborhood Cajun restaurant and bar right in the heart of the French Quarter. This is the corner where friends meet after a long day for a cold brew. This is a landmark where tour guides tell stories to visitors looking to take in the history and rich culture of New Orleans. This institution is where locals and travelers alike feel at home while enjoying a local dish and delicious cocktail in the courtyard, or at the balcony bar.
Just a stone’s throw from St. Louis Cathedral, the building that is home to Chartres House has seen many changes to the French Quarter through the years. It has fallen victim to fires, hosted Bohemian soirees and “made groceries” for its neighbors. Chartres House embodies 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 your first visit to New Orleans, any day of the week for a great night on the town, or for any occasion that is special to you.
