Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

To match the city’s 504 area code, this lavish hotel boasts 504 rooms. The Roosevelt’s lobby is a destination in and of itself—glistening brass elevators, mosaic floors and dazzling chandeliers. At Christmas, many come to enjoy the tree-lined hallway and cascading lights. Celebrities like Sonny and Cher, Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland and Marilyn Monroe have enjoyed the locale. But the most infamous fan of the hotel was local politician, Huey P. Long, who loved it so much he had a personal suite here. The hotel houses the city’s famous Sazerac Bar, which moved there in 1949.
