French Quarter condo description

** There is sometimes an ad running on Craigslist for this property in New Orleans under vacation rentals that is a SCAM. Please DO NOT contact these people as they are not the owners **


French Quarter... New Orleans

REQUESTS MADE BY E-MAIL WILL RECEIVE EXPEDITED REPLIES.

Accommodations... The penthouse atop historic Jax Brewery (circa 1890) is no longer a beer brewery but is now perhaps the most luxurious penthouse in the French Quarter. There are 4 bedrooms (including one compact loft room with glass walls and ceilings for spectacular views.) The penthouse at Jax Brewery, where old meets new... 3.5 baths... Sleeps 8 (Also, an optional 5th suite bedroom and bathroom allowing for 10 guests.)

If your group size requires a 5th bedroom, we have a queen suite that can be added to the rental for $310 per night. It is adjacent to the penthouse but private unto itself. The queen suite has panoramic views of the Mississippi River, French Quarter, Jackson Square and the St. Louis Cathedral. It is richly appointed with granite and marble. It has a queen size bed and an ensuite bath with a marble and glass shower.

There is a 4 night minimum when booking more than 60 days out from your date unless your group is arriving on a Monday and departing on a Thursday (3 night minimum for those days.) Bookings of 3 nights will be allowed when within 60 days. INQUIRIES BY EMAIL ARE RECOMMENDED IN ORDER TO RECEIVE A TIMELY RESPONSE.

Often touted as the best location and views in the city, the Jax Brewery penthouse is located in and overlooks the heart of the French Quarter and the “Crescent City Bend” of the Mississippi River. Only the finest interior finishes are found in this one of a kind rooftop palace. Spectacular views of the river are a 24-hour a day event here as the penthouse’s riverfront walls are all glass, giving you the opportunity to watch the cruise ships and paddle wheelers all day and night. There is no wonder why this palace in the sky is a favorite of movie stars, celebrities, corporate executives, and the rich and famous from around the world.

Rest well knowing that you are safe and sound in this very private and secure residence with security cameras, secure pass-code access, and private key access elevators in lobbies and corridors. Enjoy a midday or midnight dip in the private rooftop swimming pool while watching your favorite movie on the outdoor big screen plasma TV. Walk to your favorite restaurant or jazz club: you are within short walking distance to anywhere in the French Quarter.

Want to enjoy a horse drawn buggy ride? No problem: they are located right outside of your front door. Want to take a paddle wheel riverboat cruise? Again, there is no problem since the historic Natchez docks right behind the Jax Brewery. Board a streetcar, which passes behind the property, and take a beautiful ride down St. Charles Avenue through the Garden District sections of the city.

From this rooftop perch you can watch the sunset from the pool deck or the sunrise from your riverside deck. Enjoy your morning coffee on the huge balcony, or sip wine in the evening while enjoying the ever-present breeze off of the river. The rooftop overlooks the most famous landmarks in the Quarter: Jackson Square, the Pontalba Apartments (the oldest apartments in the country), and the St. Louis Cathedral, which all are located right across the street.

The Jax Brewery penthouse is ideally located for Mardi Gras, Jazz fest, and all of the French Quarter festivals and events. Famous Royal Street which is renowned for antique shopping, art galleries, boutiques, and restaurants is only a short walk away, as is Bourbon Street and all of its entertainment, energy, and excitement.

The penthouse is private: accessible only by locked elevator. The rooftop amenities include: hot tub/pool with 60” outdoor plasma TV; Viking BBQ center and cooking station; seafood/crawfish boiling station; cabana with 3 bathrooms; Viking commercial kitchen (including everything you need for cooking); and outstanding views day and night of the Mississippi River, French Quarter, and downtown Central Business District skyline. See pictures attached of the day and night views.

There is always something happening in the Quarter, be it a festival, parade, convention, or just a beautiful day. Walk to your favorite restaurant, take a paddlewheel cruise right out of your back door, go on a horse drawn buggy ride on a cool night, and explore jazz clubs and bars only a few steps away. This is a one of a kind property in the greatest city in the world...

Shopping option: At the Penthouse you can arrive to a fully stocked refrigerator, pantry, and bar. A shopping service is available for a fee that will allow you to spend your time in New Orleans enjoying the city and not having to waste hours driving to and from the grocery, liquor store, etc and have to deal with hassle of shopping. Simply provide a list of items you would like and they will be delivered to the Penthouse and unpacked before you arrive.


Fishing: Louisiana is know as the 'Sportsman's Paradise' and for good reason. Some of the best fishing anywhere can be found 45 minute from the Penthouse. Guided fishing tours can easily be arranged for speckled trout and redfish. Although fishing is good year round, August is usually an exceptional time to fish.

In order to secure your rental dates, we require that you use a credit card to pay for half of your stay. If you would rather pay by check, we will only 'authorize' your credit card for the amount due until the check arrives. Once the check arrives we will void your authorization and no charges will ever be made on the credit card. If your check is not received within 5 business days, we will charge your credit card and void your check when it arrives. For more information please see the 'rates' section below. Please note that there is a 3 NIGHT MINIMUM for staying with us when booking within 60 days of the desired dates and a 4 NIGHT MINIMUM when booking more than 60 days from your desired dates. We do not keep our online calendar updated so please message or call us about inquiries.
