This is probably one of the city's best kept secrets. An instant bonus for visitors is that it's above a fine bar, the French 75 Bar, so you can order a cocktail first. Ask the bartender to show you the staircase up to this small but wondrous free museum. Germaine Cazenave was a glamorous socialite who graced many a Mardi Gras and high society ball throughout the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. In glass cases above this dining institution is a collection of her most fabulous costumes, all draped on mannequins to show you how they looked the day they were worn. There are a dozen displays to impress and delight.
