  • the exterior of the restaurant

    The Building

    The  last standing structure on St Louis Street departing the French Quarter  towards the historic Treme, Jewel of the South is an extraordinary enduring example of a classic Creole cottage. Built in 1835, the building and courtyard were recently renovated, transforming this  historic residence into a timeless New Orleans tavern. The work was honored with the 2020 Louisiana Landmark Society Award for Excellence in Historic Preservation.

    Bar Room

    Anchored by an antique 19th century bar, this raucous room emanates energy and excitement with prime viewing of our award winning bartenders. The bar opens into a lounge area surrounded by citrus grove wallpaper, creating a unique space that, much like New Orleans, appears suspended in time. 


    Capacity: 17 seated or 30 standing

    Courtyard

    A secret garden in the middle of downtown New Orleans, the courtyard at Jewel of the South is one of the city’s most beguiling outdoor spaces, filled with tropical plantings and old fruit trees. Perfect for small weddings, birthdays, corporate events, or just a get together of  friends. 


    Capacity: 40 seated or 50 standing
