The Elysian Bar

The Elysian Bar, located in the Marigny, is one of the coziest and most romantic bars in New Orleans. The 19th-century Creole cottage-style dining parlor has beautiful high ceilings, but the place you want to be is the “jewel box” bar located in the atrium. The room is very yellow and it feels like you’ve stumbled upon somebody’s secret study where an old-timey baron might smoke a pipe and entertain some friends. Come for an early evening cocktail, like the Mr. Follow Follow that’s both spicy and pleasantly banana-y, and snack on small bites like BBQ pecans and salmon toast.
