The Court of Two Sisters

New Orleans



Since at least 1726, the property where the Court of Two Sisters restaurant is now located has been a significant cultural presence in New Orleans. The present structure at 613-615 Royal was constructed in 1832 during the city’s first major economic boom. The charm gates at the 613 Royal entrance were wrought in Spain especially for The Court of Two Sisters. Legend says that Queen Isabella of Spain had them blessed so that their charm would pass on to anyone who touched them. Make sure you and your guests try and touch the iron as they enter through those lovely gates. Four distinct private dining spaces are offered at the historic Court of Two Sisters. Hold your event in the lush, sun-dappled courtyard with its famous fountain, the majestic Grand Marquis Ballroom, the beautifully appointed Royal Court Dining Room, or the picturesque, cheerful Terrace Dining Room. Each indoor room is brightly lit and tastefully furnished with Southern flare and bright lights, including dangling crystal chandeliers, for an elegant finish.
