Chartres House is your neighborhood bar and Cajun restaurant located in the heart of the French Quarter. This corner is where friends meet for a cold beer after a hard day's work. This landmark is where tour guides tell stories to visitors looking to soak in the history of New Orleans and its rich culture. This establishment is where locals and travelers alike feel comfortable while enjoying local favorite dishes and original cocktails 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 "made groceries" for its neighbors, fallen victim to fires, and hosted Bohemian soirees. Chartres House embodies both the history of yesterday and a home-like ambiance with classic cocktails, traditional New Orleans dishes, and a friendly staff. So come see us at our historic French Quarter Cajun restaurant and bar for any special occasion, for your first visit to New Orleans, or just any day of the week for a great night on the town.
