TASTE OUR FOUR BEANS
Chef Nina Compton’s Curried Goat and Sweet Potato Gnocchi is only a small taste of why her warehouse district eatery at the Old No. 77 Hotel & Chandlery, Compère Lapin, has earned rave reviews in the New York Times and four stars – or Beans as they call them in the New Orleans – by the Times-Picayune.
PEEK INTO THE PAST
Built in an 1854 warehouse formerly called the Old No. 77 in a reference to the building’s original street address – 77 Tchoupitoulas Street – the Arts District hotel gives a glimpse of historic New Orleans with its authentic warehouse architecture, original hardwood floors, exposed brick walls and ghost signs uncovered during the hotel’s renovation.
DISCOVER EMERGING ARTISTS
The alma mater of Harry Connick Jr., Wendell Pierce and Anthony Mackie to name a few, New Orleans Center for Creative Arts is a regional, pre-professional arts institution for the region’s burgeoning young artists. Art from current NOCCA students, faculty and alumni comprise the art collection featured in the hotel’s guestrooms and lobby gallery while rotating art exhibitions produced by our partners Where Y’Art, a Royal Street gallery and community of art lovers, line the walls of our gallery corridor behind the lobby. Together, these partnerships curate an art story at the Old No. 77 Hotel & Chandlery that embraces the creative renaissance of the Crescent City.
Also known as a general wholesale business. Before the Old No. 77 was the spirited hotel you know and love today, E.J. Hart & Company used the building to trade in everything sailing ships needed to stock their voyages- from canvas and rope to tobacco and patent medicines. Today, the lobby gallery at the Old No. 77 Hotel & Chandlery is stocked with handcrafted goods from New Orleans’ brimming community of entrepreneurs and artisans in an antique-inspired glass chandlery case.
