The Bar Fountain Lounge Gets an Update

Posted: Updated:
NEW ORLEANS, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - The Roosevelt New Orleans, a Waldorf Astoria Hotel, will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the grand opening of The Fountain Lounge on Thursday, Oct. 10 at 5:50 p.m.  The bar offers locals and guests a destination for live music, creative cocktails and inventive small plates.
 
The original Fountain Lounge opened in 1938 was a place where the hip, sociable and fashionable met in a place that an original hotel brochure described as "casual and carefree as a night in Paris." From Crispy Oysters with Cajun Vichyssoises and Duck Crackling to Pecan Ale Glazed Pork Belly or Seared Tuna in a Smoked Tomato Broth, patrons of the new Fountain Lounge will choose from an expansive menu of regionally inspired cuisine with a modern twist from Chef Justin Ferguson.
 
The bar pays tribute to the hotels storied past by creating an atmosphere combining old-world tradition and modern sophistication.
