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.

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. Because of a flaw in the system our property shows a one night minimum even though this is incorrect; we require a sixty day minimum stay for all dates. This is a one of a kind property in the greatest city in the world...


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.
