Welcome back to Day 3 of our French Quarter travel guide series! (Day 1 and Day 2 posts here in case ya missed ’em!) For those who have already seen the previous days, I’m sure you’re wondering where are the things to do in New Orleans at NIGHT? Well today, Jenn (Haute Off the Rack), Juley (Upperlyne) and I are introducing a restaurant and a hotel bar for unique and special experiences in the French Quarter – including where to find the coolest tiki drinks!

I mean, can you even get over this food from the new French Quarter restaurant Beachbum Berry’s Latitude 29? I’m doing you a giant favor by posting this around dinner time because I KNOW these food photos are going to make you hungry immediately. And most likely craving a fruity cocktail. “Beachbum Berry” has been unearthing exotic drinks for the past two decades, and I can tell you that the three I sampled were delicious!
Plus, I don’t know about you, but I love themed restaurants for group dinners. The tiki cuisine was served family style, so we all got to share and try out new dishes – the best way to eat a lot of different food without going home stuffed. We tried the pork ribs, a noodle bowl, crispy green beans and a two specialty entrees. I’ve never had the opportunity to try this type of food or seasoning, so it was really neat to experience the different tastes and discuss.
The ambiance of Latitude 29 is very well, islander. It has this extremely laid back sort of atmosphere that makes you just want to hang around a while. It helps that the restaurant is filled with decor like antique tiki poles and lighting that creates such a realistic vibe!

And now for you late-nighters…
For those seeking after-dinner drinks in a swanky, but modern location while in New Orleans, look no further than The Saint Hotel’s own Burgundy Bar. It’s a bit of a bordello feeling with a mix of modern, jazz decor. We popped in during our stay at hotel to try out their signature drink list and to relax after a long day of exploring the French Quarter.
The bar is set up nicely to accommodate larger groups. There are multiple couches and even a private area that can be roped off in the back of the bar creating a more intimate setting. Like the rest of the hotel, it’s covered in eclectic artwork and decor including the most fabulous red chandelier. (It actually was not my first time being in this bar as it’s hosted events during NOLA Fashion Week!)
It’s also a great spot to start the night off as it’s right around the corner from Bourbon Street!
ps. Here is my full outfit post wearing this LBD plus yesterday’s post featuring more of The Saint Hotel.
