Fodor's Review

An Old Fashioned or a Sazerac on the expansive front porch, shaded by centuries-old oak trees, overlooking the St. Charles Avenue streetcar route alongside Uptown gentry decked out in preppy attire, ranks as one of New Orleans's most traditional experiences. Built in 1883 as a private home, the Columns has been the scene of TV ads, movies, and plenty of weddings. The interior scenes of Louis Malle's Pretty Baby were filmed here. The Victorian Lounge, with its restored period decor and a fireplace, has a decaying elegance marred only by the television above the bar. There's a great happy hour, too, with live jazz combos playing Monday through Friday.
