Sarah Baird

New Orleans’ (often gilded, always packed-to-the-gills) hotel bars are the stuff of legend. After all, who hasn’t longed to sip a Sazerac inside its namesake Sazerac Bar at the Roosevelt Hotel, or taken a slow spin on Hotel Monteleone’s revolving Carousel Bar? The classic haunts remain sought-after for hotel guests, visitors, and locals for good reason: The drinks are sippable pieces of history.
