Chartres House is your favorite neighborhood Cajun restaurant and bar located in the heart of the French Quarter. This corner is where friends gather after a hard day’s work for a cold beer of a delicious traditional Cajun meal. This is a landmark where tour guides tell tales to visitors looking to take in the rich culture and history of New Orleans. This establishment is where locals and travelers alike feel at home while enjoying a delicious cocktail and a local dish in the courtyard, or at the balcony bar.
In view of 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 yesteryear and a home-like atmosphere with a friendly staff, classic cocktails, and traditional New Orleans dishes. So come join 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.
