More than just a hotel.
The Catahoula is more than just a hotel – it's a pisco bar, a gathering place, and a home away from home. We do everything with our guests and visitors in mind, and are pleased to offer the following amenities.
Evening Espresso Service
At the Catahoula, we strive to produce truly special cups of coffee. Helping us along the way are our partners at Sweet Bloom Coffee. We receive deliciously and conscientiously sourced coffees that are recently roasted to ensure top freshness. Our staff brews them with care using modern equipment from Seattle based Synesso and a state-of-the-art batch dripper by Fetco. We cup each of our selections, making delicate adjustments throughout the day to provide a true taste of terroir. Our presentation and service finishes with porcelain elegantly tailored for specialty coffee by New Zealand's Acme Cup Co.
Our goal is to expose our guests to Peruvian cocktail culture in an environment where you can’t help but enjoy yourself. As with the food and coffee, we care about our cocktails and go to great lengths to make sure they are interesting, fresh, and yes, even exciting. We want to offer New Orleans something truly unique.
The backbone of the cocktail program is pisco, a Peruvian liquor made from grapes. Pisco's history goes back 500 years and is the cornerstone of many important classic cocktails. What makes it so special, though, is how it is produced. Every drop of liquid in a bottle of pisco came from a grape, and nothing else is allowed. This level of purity is unheard of for a spirit category, and for that reason making pisco is truly an art form, and an exciting opportunity for us at the Catahoula.
Beginning in Spring 2018 Piscobar will partner with several local food trucks, chefs and caterers to feature a revolving nightly calendar of pop-up cuisine in our bar kitchen -- "New Orleans' tiniest brick & mortar." Our aim is to create a fun & experimental stage for collaboration where Piscobar Craft Cocktails are paired with a variety of global plates and flavors .
Enjoy a private oasis in the heart of downtown New Orleans on our rooftop terrace. Sip chilled wine and cool cocktails, listen to live music and enjoy the breeze and upward skyline views of the city.
