Bar Marilou is the new cocktail bar and lounge housed in the former City Hall law library in New Orleans at Maison de la Luz, the new luxury guest house by creative studio Atelier Ace [the team behind Ace Hotel], in partnership with Quixotic Projects, France-based hospitality group behind acclaimed Parisian venues like Candelaria, Le Mary Celeste, Glass, Hero, and Les Grands Verres.
The first-ever U.S. project by Quixotic Projects, Bar Marilou’s beverage program is developed by Joshua Fontaine, Adam Tsou, and Carina Soto Velasquez [who was inducted into Tales of the Cocktail 2019 Dame Hall of Fame], and features an expansive selection of apéritif and specialty cocktails available in three sizes (small, medium and large), alongside a thoughtfully curated natural wine list.
The lounge also offers bar snacks and seasonal bites, including Ceviche with tuna, avocado, trout roe, leche de serrano, and micro sorrel; Heirloom Tomatoes with peaches, shishito peppers, garam masala and ricotta salata; Pommes Marilou with crème fraîche and bowfin caviar; and a signature Bar Burger with cantal and tomme de brebis cheeses, pickled cucumber, lettuce, and onion, among other items.
