Named after what many consider to be the world’s first mixed drink, The Sazerac Bar carries as much history as its potable namesake. Just gazing at the famous Paul Ninas murals flanking the African walnut bar takes you back to the grandeur of old...more
We stopped in after a long day wandering around the French Quarter. The lounge was easy to find, seating plentiful, and the ambiance very high class.
Our initial server was a bit stand offish to the point we almost left... maybe it was because we...More
When in New Orleans you should try and visit The Roosevelt Hotel and get a Sazerac in The Sazerac Bar.
It’s made the traditional way and a great atmosphere to enjoy this timely beverage.
It’s not cheap but worth the experience.
This is a nice bar. Stayed at the hotel so got to see the ebb and flow over 3 days. We visited one night, got a seat at the bar, and had the namesake Sazerac, good but not a new favorite. Tried to go the...More
Sazerac Bar is a classic lounge space: a long bar with ornate tables and chairs along the far wall behind it.

Yes, you'll pay outrageous prices for a Sazerac ($17) or Ramos Gin Fizz ($18) whereas...More
The Sazerac Bar is touted as old school New Orleans, and it definitely delivers! I have been a "part-time" native since my childhood, spending summers and then college in NOLA. That said, after moving away, we still visit every year but somehow have never made...More
I can’t say enough about the Roosevelt Hotel! We came to try the best know drink the Sazerac. It was a bit strong for me, but the gem in this hotel is the Pimms Cup. Yes I know you can get them all over the...More
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
