If you find yourself in the Big Easy in need of a serious classic cocktail mixed with a bit of old world charm, look no further than the Sazerac Bar at the Roosevelt Hotel in New Orleans. Walk out of the historic French Quarter and enter the Central Business District (CBD) continuing to 130 Roosevelt Way. Stroll into the majestic Roosevelt, take in a deep breath to let it all sink in, and continue on your journey to the Sazerac Bar within the Hotel.
This upscale cocktail joint is a nostalgic reflection of a time long ago with its luxury transatlantic liner ambience and murals of the depression era docks capturing New Orlean's profound relationship with water. The mixologists are as near perfect as one becomes after years of practice at their trade. Clad in white tuxedos, the bartenders and are ready to make you a classic New Orleans cocktail such as a Sazerac, Pimm's Cup and favorite of Governor Huey P. Long, the Ramos Gin Fizz. Feeling a bit more trendy? Try the Bywater Detour, made with Sorel Hibiscus Liquor, Pimento's Bitters and Gosling's Ginger Beer.
Don't be impatient, this is not a watering hole meant to grab a quick drink. Just relax, soak in the ambience and watch your artisanal libation come to life through the hands of a skilled craftsman. Don't expect happy hour prices and expect to pay anywhere from $12 - $20 for your cocktail. It'll be worth every cent.
