a unique eating and drinking experience
Vessel is an exciting concept in the heart of Mid-City, one block off the Canal Streetcar. Located in an iconic 1914 church, Vessel is not only a restaurant, but a beautiful architectural setting. We offer a menu emphasizing locally-sourced, fresh seasonal ingredients in a uniquely New Orleans's tradition. Our beverage selections include a varied wine list, freshly handcrafted cocktails and unique craft beers. Vessel will please everyone, whether it be sharing an intimate dinner, enjoying cocktails at our large bar, meeting new people at our community tables or dining and drinking al-fresco on our outdoor patio.
"Vessel" is more than just a name to us. First, we have 12 unique glasses in which to serve your drinks. After all, the finest libations should be served in the proper vessels. Second, our historic setting is reminiscent of the holy vessels used in church services. Third, the ceiling of our 100-year old Lutheran church was modeled after a ship's hull.
