Maison de la Luz, the new luxury guest house by creative studio Atelier Ace, is now open in New Orleans. Housed in the former City Hall Annex, the six-story private sanctuary offers 67 resplendent rooms, multiple guest spaces and a spirited craft cocktail lounge Bar Marilou.

Designed in partnership with revered firm Studio Shamshiri, Maison de la Luz is an intimate expression of New Orleans’ Southern swoon, replete with the quiet delights of classic hospitality and understated elegance.

In addition to the guest house, Bar Marilou, a craft cocktail bar next door to Maison de la Luz opens on May 17th. The bar is the first U.S. venture for venerated French hospitality group Quixotic Projects—known for their acclaimed Parisian venues that include Candelaria, Le Mary Celeste, Les Grand Verres and Hero.

Bar Marilou marries their French roots with their deep admiration for New Orleans’ legendary cocktail history, European apéritif culture and the warmth of Caribbean spirit and flavor. Open to all and housed in the former City Hall’s library, the bar mirrors Maison de la Luz’ high-touch finish with a bit of mischief and refined, French-inflected fare.

From historic grand staircase banisters to generous marble vanities, Maison de la Luz luxuriates in the details, including silk-tasseled keys, hand-embroidered linens and refined custom tilework.

Embracing nuanced interiors full of warm reverie and quiet grace, Maison de la Luz is designed with high intention, juxtaposing sculptural snake shower handles with airy, natural light; bespoke wallpaper and Christopher Farr x Shamshiri rugs with original works by local artists; and ornate detailing with customized, New Orleans-sourced antiques.

A wellspring of easy elegance, Maison de la Luz is a guest house for the senses, a tranquil and luminous space to recharge, relax and return to.

Providing bespoke service and exceptional care at every level, the concierge at Maison de la Luz offers an intimate knowledge of New Orleans, preemptive, personalized service and are available pre-arrival and post-departure to assist in details big or small.

Located in the vibrant Arts Warehouse district right off legendary Lafayette Square—the second oldest park in the city—Maison de la Luz offers guests a refuge to return to, an ease from the daily flood of city delights with an abundance of effortless ambiance, a dedicated concierge for bespoke service and guest-only access to a private breakfast room, living room and dining room.
