Famed Blue Room, Sazerac Bar Re-Open In New Orleans

The Roosevelt New Orleans has been reborn as a Waldorf Astoria Collection hotel after undergoing a US$145-million historic restoration. Along with the hotel’s re-opening comes the re-opening of the property’s famed Blue Room and Sazerac Bar.

The Blue Room returns to the Sunday brunch circuit with menu items such as mascarpone-stuffed French toast with house-made satsuma marmalade, boiled Gulf shrimp and a carving table featuring roasted meats.

And the renovated space once again will host live entertainment (big-band fans around the world will recall hearing the Leon Kelner Orchestra, the house band, along with artists like Tony Bennett and Louis Armstrong, live from the Blue Room). The Blue Room also will be available for special events.

“The Blue Room is a household name not just in New Orleans but across the country and even around the globe,” says Mark Wilson, sales and marketing director at The Roosevelt New Orleans. “For decades, the Blue Room was a place for family and friends to enjoy good music and food and to celebrate life’s special occasions.”The Roosevelt New Orleans' Sazerac Bar

The Sazerac Restaurant and Bar, meanwhile, will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and again will serve its signature Sazerac cocktail and Ramos Gin Fizz—both invented in New Orleans. In addition to food and beverages, Sazerac Bar patrons again will enjoy Art Deco-style murals by artist Paul Ninas and classic woodwork.
