1101 North RampartThis fine example of late 19th century Italianate architecture was designed by renowned architect G.A. D'Hemecourt and built for Dr. A. Dupaquier in 1879. For many years while a private residence the home was known as The Dupaquier House. Perhaps its most notable incarnation came in 1971 when jazz bassist Charlie Bering and Lula Lewis opened a night club on this corner that quickly became known as a focal point for the modernist jazz movement. Lu and Charlies: Potables-Sustenance-Jazz hosted the likes of Ellis and Wynton Marsalis, Lady BJ Crosby, James Booker, Alvin Baptiste and many other jazz greats. The club closed in 1977, and after a 1982 historical renovation the building re-opened as Menefee's Restaurant. Today the building houses the New Orleans Courtyard Hotel.
