About Jack Rose:
A manifestation of New Orleans’ love of celebration through food (and drink), Jack Rose is the newest concept from QED Hospitality in New Orleans’ historic Pontchartrain Hotel. The culinary crown of the hotel, alongside Hot Tin, Bayou Bar and the Silver Whistle Cafe, Jack Rose brings an eclectic and fun dining experience to the Garden District. The lively atmosphere encourages spontaneous celebration whether enjoying dinner in the Jack or Rose rooms, hosting an escapade in the Mile High Pie Club, snacking on small plates under the Lil Wayne Portrait in the Living Room or sipping sparkling rosé in the Rose Garden Patio.
About Bayou Bar:
The Bayou Bar, where the New Orleans Saints football franchise was christened in 1966, offers a casual tavern-style ambiance. Once a drinking den for both Sinatra and Capote, the Bayou Bar honors its past with a robust whiskey list, celebrated weekly at Whiskey Wednesdays. On the weekend, the rollicking Steinway piano plays, and every day great bar food, including the legendary 1&1 Burger and Mile High Pie, is served.
About Silver Whistle Cafe:
Nestled in the corner of the Pontchartrain Hotel overlooking St Charles Avenue, The Silver Whistle is a bright, cheerful cafe where locals and visitors alike can enjoy the charming ambiance with their breakfast or lunch.
