Chartres House is your favorite neighborhood bar and Cajun restaurant in the heart of the French Quarter. This corner is where friends meet for a cold beer after a long day. 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 at ease while enjoying some of our local fare 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 fallen victim to fires, "made groceries” for its neighbors, and hosted Bohemian soirees. Chartres House strives to embody 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 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.
