“rediscover the art of the cocktail”
Rediscover the art of the cocktail. Originally a “gentlemen only area,” during the days of the Cazenave family, the French 75 Bar, adjacent to the main dining room, is a sophisticated addition to the nightlife in the French Quarter. When the Casbarians renovated Arnaud’s in early 1979 a need was felt for an additional bar. When Arnaud’s was reopened to the public in March 1979, the space debuted as The Grill Bar. The bar and bar back are vintage. The bar was custom-built in the late 1800s for a Gulf Coast restaurant and purchased from a local antique dealer. In 2003, the bar was reincarnated as the French 75 bar with emphasis on premium spirits and fine cigars. The seasonal drink menu features recipes from a bygone era, from the cocktail for which the bar is named—a heady concoction of brandy and champagne—to a dizzying selection of martinis, mixed drinks, wine, and beer. Rendez-vous for drinks, plan to arrive early before dinner, or save room for post-prandial cocktails at this sassy venue in one of the city’s oldest restaurants. French 75 Bar opens daily at 5:30pm.
