Bar UnCommon


817 Common St., Renaissance Pere Marquette Hotel,
New Orleans,
United States,

Located in the Renaissance Pere Marquette Hotel, Bar Uncommon serves classic and original cocktails created by acclaimed fourth-generation bartender Chris McMillan. The bar is sleek and stylish, with bright red furniture, black-and-white-patterned pillows, candlelit tables, and an installation of glass orbs hanging from the ceiling. However, the main focus here is the cocktail selection. There’s no menu; McMillan either creates a drink based on the customer’s preference or reinvents a classic with his own recipe and fresh seasonal ingredients. Favorites include the Pimm’s Cup and McMillan’s original Gin Deaux, made with Plymouth gin, candied ginger, and lemon juice.
