The Bienville House Hotel is closed for renovations, so our only entrance is 321 N. Peter’s Street.
Speaking of renovations: We’ll be closed from 11:00 PM August 9th until 1 PM on September 1st so that vital infrastructure work may be completed on our side of the hotel.
In the meantime:
Minors are only permitted to sit in the restaurant, not the bar or lounge. If your party includes anyone under the age of 21, please call and speak with a manager about our policies. No children under the age of 7 are permitted in any part of the restaurant.
For special bookings and buy-outs, please contact email@example.com
