Parish Public House is a Louisiana Eatery, Drinkery and Live Music Venue, in the heart of downtown Albany, New York. “The Parish” is a celebration of Louisiana’s Cajun culture – not the surface-scratching New Orleans/Bourbon Street cliché – 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.
The Parish philosophy is simple across their food, drinks and music: freshness. Using a local and regional base to support our efforts:
– source quality ingredients to build the cajun specialties on our menu;
– provide an impressive array of microbrews from the northeast and Louisiana;
– 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.
