Take a look inside the highly-anticipated Catahoula Hotel, now open in the CBD. The boutique hotel is home to 35 stylish rooms in a restored Creole townhouse dating back to 1845, sure, but it also houses one of the hottest bar debuts of 2016, the Pisco Bar, with a dream team of local bartenders spearheaded by pisco and tiki whiz (and Eater Nola Bartender of the Year 2013) Nathan Dalton.
The cafe boasts indoor and outdoor seating— there is a two-storied Trixie Minx in the courtyard worth the trip alone— and also has a great coffee program and menu of excellent Peruvian eats (currently serving only a limited menu listed below; full menu will be available soon) from chef Billy Lacrosse, with help from Carmo's Dana Honn.
An upcoming rooftop space is also set to open in May, and will feature what Dalton calls a "blender bar," with plans to serve up all sorts of refreshing frozen libations and tiki drinks perfect for the summer, along with live entertainment.
Check back on Monday for a preview of the incredible drinks at the Pisco Bar, which is a strong contender for the best bar debut of 2016.
Catahoula is now open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner (and drinks until midnight) at 914 Union Street.
