Modern Cuisine & Classic Cocktails In A Timeless Space

CellarDoor


CellarDoor opened its doors in the Swoop-Duggins House in July of 2014. Much has changed since then, but our original hope remains the same: to provide a modern New Orleans experience, in a historic New Orleans mansion.

Our cuisine can best be described as Contemporary Southern; although, it changes seasonally. Our cocktail list contains meticulously researched, and sometimes "improved" versions of the classics. For good measure, we've thrown in a few creations of our own. Our wine selection is international, with offerings by the glass and bottle.

THE SWOOP-DUGGINS HOUSE


The Swoop-Duggins House is truly one of the most unique buildings in all of New Orleans. Part of the Upper Central Business District's National Historic District, as well as the local Lafayette Square Historic District, it is possibly the single oldest "house" remaining in downtown New Orleans. At the end of the eighteenth century, the boundaries of New Orleans expanded upriver from the Vieux Carré (French Quarter.) Previously operating as the ever eccentric Velvet Room, the brothel themed Sporting House, arts themed restaurant "Christopher Blake's" (which was owned by New Orleans gourmet laureate Christopher Blake - Gertrude Stein's last protégé), and perhaps most notably, one of the longest running brothels in New Orleans, the Swoop-Duggins House doesn't fall short on soul or history. Most likely built around or before 1830, the house is a three-story, three-bay, brick house with an attached two-story service wing... and yes, it most certainly does have ghosts. In 2016 a 3 story "gallery" (a balcony spanning the depth of an entire sidewalk) which was original to the property, was restored to its original grandeur by the Gremillion family.
