Cocktailing New Orleans {The Columns Hotel}

 Not far from the house is one of our favorite spots for cocktailing, The Columns Hotel, overlooking historic St. Charles Avenue. After undergoing an extensive renovation, the Columns Hotel is looking better than ever. There is no better spot for a cocktail or two then the front porch.













The Columns is no ordinary hotel. Built in 1893 as a private residence, it was converted into a boarding house during World War I. In 1953, a local family turned it into a hotel and the bar on the porch became a star. Listed on the National Park Service’s National Register of Historic Places, in 2019 it was sold to Jayson Seidman and his family. Now it’s time for the next chapter of this beloved setting. As locals, we love this hotel as much as you do, and we’re excited to keep it a family property with the attention and respect it deserves.

We’ve carefully restored the historic building and added a completely new garden, rooftop sundeck and a new cocktail bar. We also breathed new life into our public spaces, with a meticulous and modern restoration. The spirit and history of the architecture are the focus of grand rooms that are perfect for intimate gatherings or larger events. These new spaces, both inside and outside, were carefully created with hospitality and privacy in mind.

Columns Hotel, y'all!

In the Garden {Update: Sunpatiens}

 If you follow me on instagram, you have already seen the sunpatiens in June. They appear to be on serious steroids as they keep growing taller and taller and taller. They are flourishing due to the excessive rain we have had over the past few months.








Sunpatiens, y'all!
