Sazerac Bar in New Orleans

Romantic, Great cocktails, Great design, Traditional style, Hotel bar

When the Roosevelt Hotel reopened in 2009, one of the most beloved amenities was the updated recreation of this famous pre-Prohibition watering hole. Plush, wood-lined, and with striking murals along the back walls, the bar harkens to the days of famous bartenders such as Henry C. Ramos, who famously sold his gin fizz recipe to the bar. It's the local take on rye whiskey, though, for which the Sazerac Bar is named, with uniformed staff delivering cocktails and bar snacks to upscale patrons and cocktail enthusiasts on a pilgrimage. It's a classic and historic surrounding in one of the city's oldest hotels.
