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!

Helpful, Warm, & Full of Joy
I could't have asked for a better set of people to help guide me in the wedding process. Beth is so helpful, honest, and nice; I honestly had the best experience. And our reception was THE BEST in part thanks to everyone at Napoleon House.Sent on 02/08/2020

New Orleans Dream
My wedding at the Napoleon House was a complete dream. The event coordinators were easy to work with and the food and accommodations were out of this world. This venue is PERFECT for a morning wedding because of all of the windows allowing for ideal natural lighting. Our wedding ceremony and the following luncheon flowed seamlessly together. I highly recommend this to someone who wants a small, intimate wedding.Sent on 11/26/2019
