Step out of London and sample a taste of New Orleans at NOLA, Shoreditch’s hotspot inspired by the Crescent City. Hidden inside the Bedroom Bars building, NOLA boasts a distinct speakeasy feel and serves up delicious cocktails in a dark and ambient setting. The international award winning bar opened in May 2013 and is the first bar anywhere outside of North America to be awarded the ‘Seal of Sazerac’ by the New Orleans Culinary & Cultural Preservation Society. Favourite cocktails of the night include the bourbon heavy French Quarter, refreshing Ramos Gin Fizz, and classic and indulgent Sazerac. The authentic cocktail bar not only boasts amazing inspired cocktails but a jazz/blues soundtrack and cigar terrace to truly bring out the New Orleans vibe. An ideal spot for date night or fun drinks with friends.
