Located just steps from the French Quarter, BioDistrict, Garden District and Warehouse District, The Troubadour provides guests a central place in the heart of New Orleans. The building, originally developed as an office space, was recently added to the National Register of Historic Places.

Each of the hotel’s rooms and suites have a modern aesthetic with touches of New Orleans mysticism, music and local culture, with full-length windows, retro-style refrigerators, mini bars with locally-sourced items and two-person bar tops for guests to enjoy in-room cocktails. A new partnership between Joie de Virve Hotels and Jonathan Adler provides guests with custom-scented bath amenities. The hotel’s first floor focuses on an original staircase, which leads to the second-floor lounge and meeting rooms “Highball” and “Snifter."

The Troubadour will offer three unique culinary concepts – Petit Lion, Lobby Lounge and Monkey Board – designed by Chef Lopez, with help from T. Cole Newton who designed the hotel’s cocktail program. Petit Lion, located on the first floor, invites hotel guests and neighbors alike for breakfast, lunch and dinner in a cozy atmosphere. Lobby Lounge, on the hotel’s second floor, features floor-to-ceiling windows and is available for private events. Monkey Board is The Troubadour’s versatile rooftop that will feature art installations from well-known street artist Stikki Peaches. Monkey Board offers happy hour deals, live entertainment, food truck-inspired dishes and views of New Orleans.
