Chartres House is your favorite neighborhood bar and Cajun restaurant located in the heart of the French Quarter. This corner is where friends convene after a long day for a cold beer. This landmark is where tour guides spin yarns to visitors looking to take in the history of New Orleans and its rich culture. This establishment is where natives and travelers alike feel at home while enjoying local favorite dishes and original cocktails 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 historic changes in the French Quarter. It has hosted Bohemian soirees, fallen victim to fires, and “made groceries” for its neighbors. 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 join us at our 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.
