The Ritz Carlton’s Davenport Lounge in New Orleans offers the city’s best and most refined jazz experience. Named after the headline entertainer, Jeremy Davenport, the lounge is a lively and fun place to sip handcrafted cocktails, munch on a selection of delicious snacks and listen to the music that has made this town so famous.
Located on the third floor of the hotel, guests are expected to show-up looking their best – evening cocktail attire preferred. Sitting at one of the tables, you can indulge in goodies like: homemade flatbreads, sandwiches, salads, gumbo or, my favorite, truffled french fries. If you’re looking to pair your snacks with a specialty cocktail, I recommend the Roasted Pecan Manhattan – a delicious and very gentlemanly drink.
The music here is excellent, and it gets the crowd going. Every brass instrument that would ever be in your fantasy of what the New Orleans jazz scene could offer, is here. I suggest making a reservation the next time you’re in town (evenings fill-up quickly), and spoiling yourself at one of the city’s best.
