Fodor's Review

Step back in time at this historic New Orleans destination, which was once a favorite of Ginger Rogers, Betty Davis, Jack Benny, Bob Hope, and other Hollywood legends. Still catering to a well-heeled crowd, the bar, inside a senior-living facility that used to be a famed hotel, features live music on Friday and Saturday and is the perfect place to get nostalgic with a signature Moscow Mule, a chocolate martini, wine, or aged Scotch while nibbling on free appetizers.
