Overview / Comments

500 Bourbon Street is an approximately 20,000-sf, three-story building located on the corner of Bourbon and St. Louis streets. This highly visible building is exceptionally situated in one of New Orleans’ most popular entertainment destinations. It directly abuts the revered Antoine’s Restaurant and is around the corner from both Brennan’s and Bayona restaurants. It is in the heart of the French Quarter and just a few blocks’ walk to Napoleon House, Jackson Square, St. Louis Cathedral, Jax Brewery, and so much more within the French Quarter.

The property features entrances on both Bourbon and St. Louis streets. Two balconies run the full length of the Bourbon Street facade, and a small courtyard is enclosed within the property. While there are currently first-floor retail tenants, the rest of the property is unoccupied.

The first floor could be one, two, or three separate retail or restaurant operations. The second and third floors could be combined with the first floor premises for private dining rooms, a special event venue, or leased and operated on a stand-alone basis as apartments or short-term rentals.
