Chartres House is your neighborhood Cajun restaurant and bar located in the heart of the French Quarter. This corner is where friends convene to grab a cold brew after a long day. This is a landmark where tour guides tell tales to visitors looking to soak in the history and rich culture of New Orleans. This establishment is where locals and travelers alike feel at home while enjoying local favorite dishes and original cocktails in the courtyard or at the balcony bar.
Just a short walk 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, "made groceries” for its neighbors, and hosted Bohemian soirees. Chartres House embodies both the history of yesteryear and a home-like ambiance 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 your first visit to New Orleans, for any special occasion, or just any day of the week for a great night on the town.
