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 (5th bed optional) including one loft room with glass walls and ceilings for spectacular views. The penthouse at Jax Brewery, where old meets new. 3.5 baths sleeps 8-10
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. This is a one of a kind property in the greatest city in the world...

We took some friends for a long weekend which included a get together with our local New Orleans friends as well. The Penthouse was the absolute perfect place for New Orleans newcomers, veterans and locals. The views are unrivaled. We've stayed in a number of NOLA hotels and nobody has a view like this. The accomodations are Spectacular! The open floor plan is perfect for a party...and then there's the rooftop deck. The outdoor area is sprawling and the sights and sounds breathtaking. The pool was heated, so we could actually go for a swim in January! The atmosphere is totally laid back. There was non stop music from the waterfront below and the Natchez riverboat with it's calliope and sometimes jazz band at your doorstep. For eight adults, the rooming situation is great with plenty of privacy but even more shared space. The place is Really well stocked - the kitchen (s) fully outfitted and lots of amenities in the bathrooms in case you forgot something. The location is ideal, with everything outside your front door. It's an awesome place.
Our group has been coming to New Orleans for over 15 years, and never have we stayed at a finer place than the penthouse. Some locals told us about the Penthouse at Jax last year when we were here. We tried to book it for a few different dates but it was already spoken for. Well, it was worth the wait! We arrived in mid September and were immediately blown away when we walked in the front door. As our local friends mentioned, the views are amazing and the interior is spotless and beautiful. We wound up spending a lot more time at the penthouse, around the pool, and on the huge veranda overlooking the river than we planned on. It was so wonderful we hated to leave. The owners and their sons could not have been more helpful and informative. We had a wonderful time and will certainly tell all our friends about this amazing place...Count on seeing us again!
We just stayed in the penthouse last week and it is truly amazing. When we first walked in the views blew us away. The place was immaculate, everything sparkly and shiny with everything neatly in its place. It was like they just built it-- the floors were highly polished, the furniture looked brand new. It was such an enjoyable experience. Our group of 6 spread out into the very cool cabana bedroom perched up next to the sparkling clear swimming pool on one side and overlooking the river on the other side. The owners went out of their way to help us with things to do and restaurant suggestions. It’s almost like they were our personal concierge. We will recommend this beautiful penthouse to all our friends and will definitely be staying hear again. And thank you Jonathan for all the help with our questions.
We went for my wife's 30th birthday and all eight of us agree this was the perfect rental. We could have spent the whole trip right in the penthouse because the rooftop/patio gives you an amazing 360 view of the city, especially the river and Jackson Square. It was cold in early Feb but we still spent a good amount of time out on the patio and in the pool. We walked every day and night to Canal and Bourbon St. and it felt like a 2 min walk because there is so much to see along the way. Can't ask for a better location. Management was very accommodating as well. We plan to go back for Mardi Gras in a couple years and if the Jax Penthouse is available, we are definitely staying there.
Just completed a 4 night trip to Nola for my 40th. This place is amazing!!! Photos can't do it justice. Centrally located , beautiful views and well worth the splurge. My only regret was it wasn't warm enough to enjoy the heated pool and outdoor tv. I'll be back!
I have been coming to New Orleans for 33 years. I have stayed in a variety of hotels from the the LaSalle to the the Monteleone. The Penthouse at Jax is definitely the best accommodations I have ever experienced. We had a group of 8 and everyone was more than pleased with the views, the location, privacy, and the assistance of the agency. Now, as the travel director for our group, I have a bar set very high for the coming years.
