Bartenders and spirits professionals are celebrated in New Orleans this month as we proclaim, “All Hail the Cocktail,” the official theme of the 2014 Tales of the Cocktail®. The world’s premier cocktail festival happens right here in New Orleans July 16-20 and features a “spirited” array of activities for the professional mixologist as well as the enthusiastic imbiber. Most of the events take place in hotels in the French Quarter, a quick streetcar ride from our Garden District Bed and Breakfast. Some of the spectacular events include “Spirited Lunches and Dinners” which pair cocktails with meal courses, A Royal High Tea – Prohibition Style, cocktail tours, a Texas Tiki Throwdown, aWorld Cup Cocktail event, a Taming the Hurricane competition and many many more.
Get your tickets to this intoxicating festival soon and while you’re at it make reservations to stay at our historic Garden District B&B. We’ve got a great summer deal for weeknight rates; mention Tales of the Cocktail when you book four or more nights and we’ll extend it through the weekend!
