Bridal Buzz: Ride and Shine Guest Package and Bar Opening


Though the Delta variant of the coronavirus is creating a bit of pandemonium of late, there are still some openings and offerings popping up around the city.


One of those opportunities would be perfect for the fitness-minded couple excited about the prospect of eating and drinking their way through the city, without feeling as if the trip is a total health bust. The JW Marriott New Orleans has announced the launch of a new package called the “Ride and Shine.” The package includes Peloton Bikes in select rooms as well as additional equipment and healthy snacks upon arrival. According to a press release about the new package, guests will receive private access to their own Peloton Bike with daily live and on-demand classes, two electrolyte drinks, a selection of healthy snacks, light weights and resistance bands.

“At JW Marriott, we encourage each guest to enrich their mind, body and spirit through meaningful moments and experiences,” said Olivier Lau, general manager of JW Marriott New Orleans in a press release announcing the package. “We recognize that exercise is an important part of nourishing and taking care of your body. Our new package is just one way that we’re able to help our guests stay connected to their fitness goals while traveling.”

To find out more about the “Rise and Shine” package (which must be booked at least 24 hours prior to arrival) and to reserve the package for your stay visit the hotel’s website here.


When you’re not biking your way through Peloton classes, we suggest grabbing a cocktail across from The National World War II Museum on Magazine Street. The Higgins Hotel recently announced the re-opening of its Kilroy’s Lobby Bar. The bar is open Monday-Friday from 4-11 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from noon to 11 p.m. The more important timeframe for you to remember is the daily happy hour from 4-6 p.m. with $6 well mixed drinks. Additionally, the bar occasionally hosts live jazz. Though not always regularly scheduled performances, the next show is July 27.
