To experience the Old World of New Orleans, consider the Napoleon House in the French Quarter. In operation since 1914, this venue exudes European style and tradition, with Beethoven’s Eroiqua playing in the background and a Pimm’s Cup in your hand. Only the Big Easy could provide such a stunning ambiance. For parties of less than 300, the second-floor suite is perfect for cocktail parties, receptions, and weddings. For larger parties, planners can include the first-floor patio and the bar, at an additional charge.
