Stormin' of the Sazerac
The Roosevelt New Orleans, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel's annual Stormin' of the Sazerac will be held on September 28th at 1PM in the Blue Room. This one-of-a-kind celebration pays tribute to the women who stormed the Sazerac Bar in 1949 demanding equality and a stiff drink, rendering the Sazerac Bar to be the first bar in New Orleans to allow women on days other than Mardi Gras. “Stormin of the Sazerac” encompasses libations, cuisine and entertainment, including:
A three-course ladies-only luncheon
Complimentary glass of sparkling wine
Pop-up fashion shop
Juried best-dressed competition
Following the Blue Room festivities, our Reigning Spirit of the Sazerac will lead attendees in a second line to “storm” the world-renowned Sazerac Bar, where the spirited day continues with Sazerac cocktails in-hand.
Ladies are invited to dress in post-war New Orleans style, such as hats, veils, peep-toe shoes and gloves. Doors to the world famous Blue Room open at 1pm, and the celebration begins with the traditional ladies lunch at 1:30pm. Live entertainment will be provided, and the event will feature a fashion show showcasing vintage 1940's style with a best-dressed competition.
Blue Room luncheon tickets are $59 each (excluding tax and gratuity) and can be purchased online or by calling 504-335-3129.
PLEASE NOTE: This event in the Blue Room is currently sold out. Please join us in the Fountain Lounge before we storm the Sazerac Bar at 3PM! The Fountain Lounge will have live music as well as our new anniversary themed lunch options.Book Now
