Cocktail Bar
Effortlessly blending the eccentric personality of New Orleans’ bar culture with the old-world charm and sophistication of a classic social club, Peacock Room delivers a bright and vibrant feel during the day and a sexy, moody atmosphere come sundown, perfect for an afternoon aperitif, social dinner or an end-of-evening nightcap. The bar is stocked with everything from the classics to hard-to-find spirits, with an impressive collection of rum and madeira and an emphasis on drinks that are light and floral. The sipping is complemented by an elevated selection of small plates from Chef Chris Lusk that feature refined shareable interpretations of regional classics.

Beautiful surroundings, food was pretty but kinda pricey . Left there hungry. Great cocktail place and very small plates. So many other places that are pretty, great cocktails and don’t make you want to eat a burger after . 😂🎉

This is one of our favorite places in New Orleans for a delectable meal in beautiful surroundings. The service is kind and welcoming, the decor is intricate and soothing at the same time. Of course I am a fan of teal and gold so that's an added bonus for me.

Every food item has a blend of flavors and textures, even the coffee is richly and beautifully balanced.

Loved the Peacock Room - our server was so hospitable and friendly. We tried 4 different craft cocktails which were all delicious & made perfectly. Get jasmine tea with your breakfast - the china is beautiful!

Our service at the Peacock Room was amazing! We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful decor and ambience. Unfortunately, the menu was lacking. There were only three entrees and none of them got us excited. The cocktails were very expensive also. The Hellcat cocktail sounded interesting, but did not taste good. All in all, we would come again if the menu were better. Peacock has the potential to be incredible if offerings improve- it has all the other ingredients.

I was so happy to finish our vacation out with one last reservation here! It is our new favorite spot for cocktails. Ate the curry tonight and it was delicious! My husband had the duck gumbo which he liked. I refused to try it- I had pet ducks growing up as a child. Lol I ll take his word it was good. Til next year !

Y’all this place was such a surprise. I am a total snob when it comes to cocktails and super picky with taste. I tried a new cocktail every time I ordered bc they were that good and worthy to step out. LOVED this place and we can’t wait to return next near. This place won over GW Finns on my reservation for next year’s vacation.

The chef could change a couple of things about his food items. For instance, the deviled eggs were more of the additives rather than including more yolk for the egg taste. The lobster toast had one large piece of cheese in the center of the toast which overpowered any lobster flavor from the sauce, I.e. smaller pieces of cheese over a larger area of the toast to distribute the flavor. A few changes and it would be awesome.

This week, my husband and I celebrated our 22nd anniversary with two other couples at the Peacock Room and were in bliss! Chef Chris' menu exceeded all of our expectations and left us completely satisfied! The music was loud enough to get lost in Robin's soulful voice, yet carry on conversations with our friends. Everything was exquisite, and I can't wait to introduce more friends to one of our favorite spots! Until next month...
