About Us

Renowned for its refreshing Pimm’s Cup cocktail, warm muffuletta sandwich, and “dishy” history as a proffered refuge for the embattled and exiled ex-Emperor of France, the century-old Napoleon House is a French Quarter icon exuding the patina, charm, and authenticity of living history. This 200-year old landmark was recently awarded 2019 "Timeless American" award by Tales of the Cocktail for being a pillar in the community and having provided a benchmark for the industry.

ABOUT US

Owned and operated by the Impastato family since 1914 and Ralph Brennan since May of 2015, Napoleon House is a place that suspends you in time. You can hear Beethoven's Eroiqua, which he composed for Napoleon, and the music of other classical masters, while sipping a Pimm's Cup, and basking in an ambiance that could only be New Orleans.  Learn more about the History of Napoleon House.
