Super cool old bar in the middle of the french quarter. Try the Pimm's Cup & Sazerac! Sat in the beautiful courtyard. Plan to try the muffaletta next time.

Great bread pudding! We only had drinks and desserts here one night. But I would definitely recommend it. We had four drinks and they were all great! Server was helpful as well. Cute courtyard as well. Great location in the French Quarter. Easy walk.

Stopped by here for a few drinks and am glad I did. The atmosphere is amazing and the bartender was extremely friendly. If you love places with history, ambiance, and great drinks, definitely stop here!

The history and ambiance of Napoleon House makes it worth a visit alone but the wonderful food is also a reason to stop by. Red beans & rice, jambalaya and of course their distinctive Muffaletta (it's heated) are excellent food choices.

I would recommend sitting inside by the bar, and not in the open space at the back. The inside is so much interesting and beautiful, and if you can get a table by the open windows, you get to watch the lovely buildings all around,...More

This is the kind of place that you keep coming back to, the food was outstanding, the drinks are made to order (no pre-made mixes or garbage like that) and the bar service was perfection. You must try the muffuletta, but be careful it's a...More

I loved this place! It was right next to the Omni Hotel, which was very convenient and my family and I loved it so much we went there twice. The servers were so nice and helpful, both times. They were wonderful with suggesting items. I...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
