Had a Moscow Mule and Yuengling beer after a gentle ride into the Garden District and Uptown. The menu looks great but sitting on the porch of a historic hotel was a great experience.

I didn't eat here but had drinks on a busy Saturday night with a large group. It was fantastic! Gorgeous Southern Mansion in the Garden district - even with a wedding going on in one of the rooms - still happening and beautiful. Such a...More

I like to come to the Victorian Lounge for drinks and/or dessert. The mansion could not be any more impressive, it simply couldn't. It has a wow factor both on the interior and the exterior, and is a great showstopper for people new to the...More

Although I was told that is was listed as one of the 100 best bars in America I was disappointed--the space was a re-purposed dining room with a lot of wood but not much charge--the side patio was ok but sandwiched next to the adjoining...More

We had Sunday brunch. It was not worth $40.00. They apparently are extremely understaffed. The servers were rushing around attempting to keep up with things. No one asked if we wanted coffee or cold drinks. We did get the mimosas which are supposed to be...More

While we enjoyed some great drinks the experience was dramatically impacted by the shabby facility. While there's shabby chic, ... this is just shabby and worn out. Upon entering one is struck by the wonderful old school look and smell of wood ... regrettably mixed...More

We are staying at the Column's and feel lucky to have this Lounge right here downstairs. There is a good selection of bar menu selections. Salads are fresh and tasty and the crab cakes on a fried green tomato are killer! They start serving food...More

We chose this very simple restaurant just for a simple bite to eat and its outddor ambience. At the time it was a little busy due to Valentines Day, so the people watching was a bit of a bonus. Perfect for those wanting a drink...More

Experience true southern charm at the original Grand Dame herself, the Columns Hotel. No trip to New Orleans is complete without sipping a Bloody Mary, Mint Julep or Sazerac on the fabulous columned porch of this historic Antebellum mansion. Be sure to take a peek inside, where you may recognize the elegant interior as the brothel from the movie, "Pretty Baby." Daily happy hour from 5-7pm.
