Sazerac, de la Louisiane, Ramos gin fizz and grasshopper are drinks that helped cement New Orleans’ reputation as one of the world’s great cocktail crucibles. All four are present and correct on the list at this credible homage to the Big Easy – an atmospherically steamy, peeling juke joint straight out of a Tennessee Williams play. Discover some up-to-date ideas filched from the city’s hottest bars, alongside signatures such as black magic woman (Blackwell’s dark rum, crème de violette, Fernet Branca and sweet vermouth). Other draws include Creole bar bites, a Bourbon Street-style terrace for smokers, and a banging boogie-woogie soundtrack punctuated by rowdy jazz kats jamming live. Also look out for head honcho Dan Priseman’s range of turbo-charged hurricanes – boozy rum-based hits that are guaranteed to blow your hat off.
