The bartenders were great, and the whole vibe was just as it should be. Envisioned as an homage to the New Orleans Storyville era of 1897 - 1917, the lounge features dark red walls, a Bourbon St. balcony, and guests of questionable actions and attire (which I'm sure will be a staple on any night). A small stage in the back hosted the fabulous NOLA jazz band Meschiya Lake and the Little Big Horns last night. It remains to be seen whether they will make regular appearances, but I'm sure many a memorable band will grace that stage. The video (below) of Meschiya and the band, captured at The Spotted Cat Music Club on Frenchman Street, sums up their vibe and music perfectly.
Anyone who knows me knows I'm not a Bourbon Street regular.... but I might just become one now! Stay tuned, as the spot is rumored to officially open for business soon :) .
