Le Chat Noir
Le Chat Noir
Since 1999, Le Chat Noir has been considered New Orleans most intimate night spot and the premier venue for musical theatre, comedy and satire, cabaret shows and other types of live entertainment...
Much of what we present is original work. We have a popular Cabaret Room that features candle-lit table seating to view live shows five to seven nights a week, 50 weeks a year. The Room seats 125 and reservations for any show can be made by calling 504-581-5812 or online (see a show page for that option.) A separate Bar Noir features premium brands of liquor, signature cocktails, nice little wines, interesting beers and attracts an eclectic theatre crowd. Bar Noir opens one hour before curtain on all show nights. Le Chat Noir is located at 715 St. Charles Avenue in the historic Warehouse/Arts District of downtown New Orleans. So, come in and introduce yourself. We always enjoy getting to know new people and introducing you to the wonderful array of performing artists that calls New Orleans home.
Le Chat Noir is six blocks from the French Quarter, four blocks from the Convention Center, one block from the Julia Street art galleries, and a short walk from many fine restaurants. You easily can reach us by cab; we are also on the St. Charles streetcar line (get off at Girod Street). Parking is generally readily available either curbside (free after 6pm), or in a next door lot (currently $2 for Le Chat Noir clientele, pay inside venue).
We accept cash, Visa, MasterCard and American Express cards. We accept travelers checks, but not personal checks. Ticket prices generally range from $15 to $45 dollars and usually the price of a show ticket includes credit toward bar purchases. We recommend reservations be made in advance by calling 504-581-5812 or by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org. All seating is table seating and is assigned on a first call, best seats basis. We will ask for a credit card number when you make the reservation; this is considered a guarantee toward a reserved table to see the requested show. Your card will be charged on the day of the show, unless you cancel before that. Show tickets are issued to you when you arrive for the performance, not in advance.
The Bar Noir serves a variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages both in the bar and during shows. Younger customers are welcome (with parents if under 14), but are expected to adhere to rules of conduct common to all live performance spaces. The legal drinking age in Louisiana is 21 years. As with all live theatre written for adults, some shows are more appropriate to children than others, so be sure to ask.
Smoking is allowed in the Bar Noir, but not in the Cabaret Room.
Whew. . .this is the basics, but if you have any other questions, just contact us. Thanks!
