The French 75 was originally a “gentlemen only area.” When the Casbarians renovated and Arnaud’s reopened in March 1979, the space debuted as The Grill Bar. In 2003, it was reincarnated as the French 75 Bar with emphasis on premium spirits, classic cocktails and fine cigars. The bar was custom-built in the late 1800s, both it and the bar-back are vintage.
Inspired by France, but profoundly New Orleans, The French 75 Bar is dedicated to making the finest cocktails with the highest quality ingredients and spirits. The bar’s handcrafted cocktails are classically focused using locally sourced ingredients, home-made syrups, drams and liqueurs.
