Napoleon House

Napoleon House offers one of the most unique and elegant settings anywhere for parties and receptions. The property is rated among the highest historically significant locations in New Orleans, and is on the National Register of historic buildings. The timeless exterior, deeply patinaed walls, heart-of-pine floors, sunken cypress doors, and luminous photography exudes the European charm that begets civilized eating and drinking. The suite of rooms (L' Appartment De L' Empereur) on the 2nd floor would have been Napoleon's apartment had he made it to the new world. Comprised of 2,300 square feet, the rooms can accommodate seated dinners, cocktail parties, receptions, and weddings. For an additional charge, the first floor patio and bar is available to accommodate larger groups of up to 300. Catering is done in-house by Chef Chris Montero and our talented staff.
