Napoleon House Tours

1 Review
In New Orleans’ French Quarter lies the Napoleon House, a monument to the city’s illustrious heritage and culinary tradition. Built in 1814 by former Mayor Nicholas Girod, the property is most famous for supposedly being offered by the mayor to Napoleon Bonaparte as a refuge after the Frenchman’s exile in 1821. Napoleon never made it to the house, but the name stuck and the building became one of the most famous bars and cafes in the city.

For the past 200 years, Napoleon House has been a frequent stop for numerous artists and writers, and today the National Historic Landmark is open for visitors to enjoy a signature muffaletta and Pimms Cup while absorbing both the architecture and atmosphere.
