The new Fountain Lounge at The Roosevelt New Orleans brings a touch of new-world sophistication, while offering subtle nods to the timeless elements of the hotel. Opened in 1938 under the direction of then-hotel owner Seymour Weiss, the Fountain Lounge was a place where the hip, sociable and… fashionable met to enjoy cocktails and small plates in an atmosphere described as “casual and carefree as a night in Paris.”
Featuring rich wood flooring, luxurious fabrics and high-end finishes, the new Fountain Lounge balances its glamorous tradition with modern touches. The lounge will feature live entertainment with a focus on inventive cocktails and small plates, in keeping with its storied history. The new Fountain Lounge will set itself apart by offering a full raw bar serving a massive array of the freshest oysters and shellfish from the Gulf coast and also a sampling of the best raw seafood from around the world.
