1026 Royal Street  •  A Private Residence

Join us for a Historic Happy Hour at a private, quintessential French Quarter residence. Mr. David McPherson is opening his door to our members! Historic Happy Hour combines history and cocktails! Mr. McPherson has lovingly restored and researched his home in one of the oldest colonial building types in the neighborhood, the Creole Cottage.

Historic Fun Fact: In 1778, records describe a sale from “Luis Barbier to Elena [Foucan], a free negress” for the sum of 200 pesos. The notary for this sale was none other than Andres Almonester y Roxas, builder of the St. Louis Cathedral, Cabildo and Presbytere and father of the Baroness de Pontalba.
