Napoleon House offers a prime, historic French Quarter setting, Chef Chris Montero’s acclaimed classic New Orleans cuisine, caring service and heartfelt hospitality. Our ambition is to deliver a very special, one-of-a-kind event that will charm your guests and reflect your palate, theme and budget.

Constructed in the late 1700’s; owned and operated by the Impastato family of New Orleans for 101 years and Ralph Brennan since May of 2015, the Napoleon House (named for the exiled French Emperor who was offered the opportunity to take up residence) suspends you in time. It’s authentic exterior, deeply patinated walls, heart of pine floors, sunken cypress doors, and luminous photography exudes the European charm that begets civilized eating and drinking.

The upstairs private rooms boast glittering custom chandeliers, antiqued cypress wood mantles, heirloom silk tapestry drapes and balcony access with breathtaking views of the French Quarter.

Known internationally for our fabled Pimm’s Cup, a gin-based aperitif mixed with fresh lemonade, 7 Up and a sliver of cucumber, and our quintessential Muffuletta sandwich, the Napoleon House is the ideal destination for those with a bold palate and a penchant for the intersection of history and hospitality.

We can accommodate a wedding reception or rehearsal dinner in the many spaces in the Napoleon House, this space can hold up to 250 reception style. The Rosa and Pietro Rooms on the second floor also have two fabulous balconies. Please note that these rooms unfortunately do not accommodate handicap accessibility.

Our breathtaking courtyard is used for smaller ceremonies!

Thank you for considering Napoleon House. Laissez les bons temps rouler!

    Phenomenal Event

    I cannot say enough wonderful things about Napoleon House- I had to reschedule my wedding several times due to COVID and the event planning staff was absolutely lovely and more accommodating than I could have hoped for. They truly are wonderful people who want to help you and your event be successful. The ballrooms are stunning, the food was fantastic, the pricing is impressively reasonable and the entire event went off without a hitch. I would whole-heartedly recommend Napoleon House and its staff to all brides!

    Amazing experience, perfect day!

    The team at Napoleon House is the absolute best! The venue itself is beautiful, and the food is delicious. Beth worked with me through multiple changes due to Covid, and she and Karen jumped in to fix the floor plan to make sure my guests would be comfortable. Joshua was such a delight the day of, and he really went out of his way to make it a wonderful evening.

    Elegant, Historical Venue

    A great location in the French Quarter, New Orleans. We held the rehearsal dinner in the Rosa & Pietro rooms, and we were stunned at how lovely the space was – even better than the on-line pictures. The history and beauty of these rooms is amazing! Perfect for our party.
    Beth and Karen were wonderful to work with. They were very easy to contact and answered all of our questions when planning our event from out of town. They offered suggestions, kept us updated on COVID guidelines, worked with us to make sure every detail was what we envisioned, from the dinner and drink choices, down to the last details of the video presentation, and toasts to the happy couple. The evening of the dinner, Joshua and his team of servers were professional, courteous and attentive to all of the guests. The appetizers, dinner, and desserts were delicious!
    Our experience at Napoleon House couldn't have been better - we had a wonderful time and the space was absolutely beautiful--we highly recommend this venue.
