Bacchanal is of course known for their romantic, and laid back al fresco dining experience with live music in the courtyard, gourmet eats from Chef Joaquin Rodas, and a great selection of wine, artisinal cheese and charcuterie. But the Bywater favorite just got itself a brand new, totally swanky craft cocktail bar upstairs, a.k.a the "candlelit creole grotto n bar." Designed by Chris Meehan, the new dining/lounge area with vaulted ceilings and exposed brick and wood work really expands their dining space, and is totally rain-proof. Bacchanal has more pictures of the gorgeous new space on their Official Website too.
