Classic decor, laid back vibe and a swanky atmosphere engulf this iconic drinking establishment. We visited in the early afternoon and found the bar to busy but not crowded, we were able to sit a the bar and talk with the bartender over a few cocktails.
What To Get:
The Sazerac Bar boasts all the classics on their drink menu if this is your first time in NOLA I suggest you give the Sazerac a try – a rye based cocktail with the Spirit of New Orleans. I went for a Sazerac and an Old Fashioned, both cocktails although completely different from one another were both done well.
I found the staff to be very friendly and informative on their drink menu. The bartender even took the time to let us sample a few of their top shelf bourbons and ryes before we chose our drinks. It is refreshing to talking with bartenders who are passionate about their craft.
Classic Cocktails, great staff and an even better drinking atmosphere make The Sazerac Bar one of my all time favorite places to throw back a few drinks in The Big Easy. The Roosevelt Hotel also has a great Italian Restaurant called Domenica which offers great pizza and wine. All in all The Roosevelt Hotel has a great imbibing experience that is not to be missed.
