Venue Info

Located within the Hilton Hotel, this swanky piano bar -- which takes its name from the 20th century railroad line still in operation today -- serves speakeasy-inspired cocktails in a sultry jazz era lounge. The drink list offers fresh takes on beloved classics like Sazeracs and Old Fashioneds, as well as innovative signatures named for the Ladies of Storyville, a nod to the city's historical boudoirs and the women who worked within them (pro tip: try the "Scarlet Harlot," a winning combination of Patron silver, apricot liqueur, dry vermouth, and a lemon twist served straight up in a martini glass).
