Parish Public House

Welcome to Parish Public House, a Louisiana Eatery, Drinkery and Live Music Venue in the heart of downtown Albany, New York.

Located at 388 Broadway, “The Parish” is a celebration of Louisiana’s Cajun culture- not the surface-scratching New Orleans/Bourbon Street cliché - in the Heart of Acadiana. Through food, drinks, music and camaraderie, our goal is to invoke the spirit found at a Cajun Fais Do-Do, each and every night. A parish, in Louisiana, is akin to a county in New York. But, it's also much more than that. It's an identity, a home, a community. So we've established our very own Louisiana Parish right here in Albany. An outpost of the food, drinks and live entertainment that has made the Cajun culture one of the most celebrated around the world. Our philosophy is simple across our food, drinks and music: freshness. Using a local and regional base to support our efforts, we source quality ingredients to build the Cajun specialties on our menu; provide an impressive array of microbrews from the northeast and Louisiana; and continue to be the biggest supporters of the local, original, live music scene in Albany - while also bringing in a variety of rock, jazz, jam, hip-hop, bluegrass, country, and more, from across the region and country. If you're a band or promoter looking to book a show at Parish Public House, make sure you check out the Booking Page for further information. All booking inquiries should be made by email to [email protected]ouse.com.

From now until July 18 purchase a @northwaybrewingco Raspberry shandy draft and you can be entered to win an experience at North Way Brewery. On July 18 we will be offering free sample tasting and fun give aways. Along with all this @glass_pony_band & @hilltop_ny will be gracing our ears with their fantastic live music at 8pm. $10 at the door of $5 WITH alive @5 wrist band. We’ve got a lot of weekend shows coming up so keep your eyes peeled for some live music Albany!! #livemusic #albanyny #albanymusic #albanyrestaurant #albanybar #parishpublichouse #388broadway #downtownalbany #albanydoesntsuck #keepalbanyboring #yelpalbany #518 #518eats #localmusic #supportlocal #smallbusiness #troyny #schenectady #aliveatfive #northwaybrewingco #discoveralbany #downtown

It is with heavy heart that the family of the Parish Public House would like to acknowledge the passing of a New Orleans piano legend Mac Rebennack, "Dr. John the Night Tripper". His music has inspired many for decades and will continue to do so. Thank you Dr. John for all the good times you helped to create and all the genuinely selfless public service you gave! We would like to offer our sincerest condolences to Mac's family, friends, and fans.

Put on your favorite Dr. John song and turn it up, it's time to second line! Here's a pic of a 2016 Alive @ 5 on Broadway in downtown Albany
