A Coastal American Restaurant Located In A Beautifully Deteriorating New Orleans Mansion Built In 1883.

Cavan Restaurant and Bar feels like an upbeat, fun dinner party set in a 19th Century Garden District mansion. Our menu offers our expressions of classic Coastal American dishes incorporating the freshest locally-sourced ingredients. Our cocktail list is rooted in the classics but features our own drinks created also using locally-sourced ingredients. Our wines are boutique, old-world selections that are accessible and meant to be shared. At Cavan, we share the same love of family, friends and community as Terrence Smith, an orphan from County Cavan IR who immigrated to and eventually raised his family in this very neighborhood, did. Our happy hour is offered daily from 4-7pm and includes half off classic cocktails, glasses of wine, local beers and select appetizers. Cavan has been best described as “an Uptown restaurant with a downtown edge.”
