Best Hotel Bars in New Orleans

Where just about nobody knows your name

MEETING & TALKING

SoBou
W New Orleans – French Quarter
310 Chartres St., 552-4095,
SoBouNola.com


What are those beer taps doing in the middle of tables? And what about that wall of wine dispensers? Self-service seems to be a theme, but then there’s also an amazing array of complicated but well-balanced drinks deftly produced by a seasoned bar team. Comfortable, welcoming, with a tell-us-what-you-want attitude among all the staff, it’s located in an area of the French Quarter that had no specific name until SoBou came along: South of Bourbon. Management hopes the name catches on. That decision still hangs out there.




MEETING & TALKING

Loa
International House Hotel
221 Camp St., 553-9550, InHotel.com/bar.html


In voodoo terms, “loa” means benevolent spirits. You will feel their presence here. This gentle venue specializes in cocktail creations rooted in fresh herbs, fruits, spices and vegetation. Alan Walter, the bar manager, is a former New Orleans Magazine Mixologist of the Year. His calm and creative hand is present throughout the cocktail menu.
