Best Hotel Bars in New Orleans

Where just about nobody knows your name

(page 5 of 5)



DON’T TELL A SOUL

Touché Lounge
Royal Orleans Hotel
621 St. Louis St., 529-5333


The Rib Room has been, in the not-so-distant past, a meeting place for local and state politicians as well as ne’er-do-wells – often the same thing. The bar sits both in the gallery area of the Royal Orleans Hotel, with great views onto St. Louis and Royal streets, but also extends into the restaurant.

Wash-bucket martinis are signature drinks, a case of quantity overwhelming good sense.

The Touché Lounge is entered from Royal Street, not the hotel, and is a favorite gathering spot for locals and visitors alike. It is quite smoky but the in-crowd never seems to mind.


Along the Lines of What You Would Normally Expect

And finally there are hotel bars that are comfortable, certainly capable of making a good drink, and excellent meeting places when out-of-town guests are in New Orleans.
