About Jack Rose: 

A manifestation of New Orleans’ love of celebration through food (and drink), Jack Rose is a lively concept from QED Hospitality in New Orleans’ historic Pontchartrain Hotel. The culinary crown of the hotel, alongside Hot Tin, Bayou Bar and the Silver Whistle Cafe, Jack Rose brings an eclectic and fun dining experience to the Garden District. The vibrant atmosphere encourages spontaneous celebration whether enjoying dinner in the Jack or Rose rooms, hosting an escapade in the Mile High Pie Club, snacking on small plates under the Lil Wayne Portrait in the Living Room or sipping sparkling rosé in the Rose Garden Patio. 

 

About Hot Tin: 

Once a penthouse, today the space has been converted into an intimate rooftop bar where champagne and bright cocktails complement the 270-degree view of Downtown New Orleans and the Mississippi River. Modeled after a 1940s artist's loft, the interior space is both airy and eclectic, a place where you can lounge on couches or explore the wall of curios and knick-knacks that bring moments past into the present. Glass accordion doors open onto the balcony, showcasing the incomparable view of Downtown, while a second, more secluded terrace offers a bird's-eye view of Saint Charles Avenue.

 

About The Bayou Bar: 

The Bayou Bar, where the New Orleans Saints football franchise was christened in 1966, offers a casual tavern-style ambiance. Once a drinking den for both Sinatra and Capote, the Bayou Bar honors its past with a robust whiskey list, live music on the weekends and excellent bar food. The Bayou Bar is also the service bar for popular dining destination Jack Rose restaurant and its lounge area. 

 

About Silver Whistle Cafe: 

Nestled in the corner of the Pontchartrain Hotel overlooking St Charles Avenue, The Silver Whistle is a bright, cheerful cafe where locals and visitors alike can enjoy the charming ambiance with their breakfast or lunch.
