Le Chat Noir houses an elegant Cabaret Room. Located at 715 St. Charles Avenue, it can be discovered on one of the most recognized avenues in the country. The 700 block is between the Central Business District (downtown) and the Uptown residential area. Close enough for easy visitor access, yet considered 'where the locals go,' this area, know as the Warehouse/Arts District, has great appeal to tourists and conventioneers who want a hip New Orleans experience. It is five blocks from the French Quarter and six blocks from the Morial Convention center. Parking for busses, vans or cars is available in the evenings and on weekends at 721 St. Charles Avenue.
Le Chat Noir, French for The Black Cat, is housed in a newly restored turn of the century building, with expansive windows that front on St. Charles for viewing of the historic streetcars, and the soaring steeple of St. Patrick's Cathedral. At night, vintage street lamps light the block, which includes a selection of fine dining establishments, luxury condominiums and the lovely Gallier Hall. The neighborhood is an urban transition area including the largest concentration of contemporary art galleries, art centers and museums in the South.
