Address: 500 Chartres St, New Orleans, LA 70130, United States

Established: 1797

This was originally the house of the Mayor of New Orleans. He then offered it as refuge to Napoleon Bonaparte himself. Because the infamous man never came, the house remained unused. Maybe Napoleon decided to stay by Josephine’s side and seek refuge in her ample bosoms. Well, we’re glad his ghost doesn’t haunt the place. What was once a shelter is now a bar and restaurant. It offers European cuisine, classical music, and the famous Pimm’s Cup cocktail to both the regulars and newbies.
