Cafe Adelaide and the Swizzle Stick Bar

Notice to our guests: We are currently undergoing a renovation. From Dinner August 24 through Dinner August 28, we will be serving a limited menu in the Loews lobby. The restaurant and bar area will be closed but drinks and food are still available. We'll fully reopen the morning of Friday, August 29. We are very sorry for the inconvenience.


Café Adelaide and The Swizzle Stick Bar are inspired by the Brennans’ beloved Aunt Adelaide, who personified the avant-garde cocktail culture of the late 1950s and 1960s, and represents the joie de vivre of all that is New Orleans. Everything about Café Adelaide and The Swizzle Stick Bar is centered around her charming pursuit of the good life—from high-falutin’ to low-down…with great New Orleans food.

Meeting in the Walk-In

Bar Chef Lu Brow and Executive Chef Carl Schaubhut have made quite the pair since Chef made the move to Cafe Adelaide from Commander's Palace in March 2013. These two like to "meet in the walk-in" and see what they can come up with, taking full advantage of their mutual respect and natural affinity for each other. They both love good food and good drinks and you'll see the results on our ever-changing food and cocktail menus, as well as during our famous cocktail paired brunches
