Venue Info

The Chart Room is a cash-only dive that has managed to withstand its position as a must-visit even in the touristy French Quarter. This dark, cool outpost on Chartres Street remains unhurried, unworried, and unlikely to ever bow to a single trend, ever. Also in the “some things don’t change” department: you’ll be entertained by the video poker devotees, the old-timer regulars with their elbows on the bar, and happy tourists singing off-key to the music wafting out of the open front doors.
