Stormin’ of the Sazerac
September 29 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm$109
The Roosevelt New Orleans, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel will host the annual Storming of the Sazerac on Friday September 29, 2023 in the Blue Room. This one-of-a-kind celebration pays tribute to the empowered group of women who stormed the Sazerac Bar in 1949 demanding equality and a stiff drink. This event made the Sazerac Bar the first bar in New Orleans to allow women on days other than Mardi Gras. “Storming of the Sazerac” encompasses libations, cuisine and entertainment, including:
- A ladies-only three course luncheon
- Complimentary welcome beverage
- Cash bar
- Live entertainment
- Juried best-dressed competition
Following the Blue Room festivities, our Reigning Spirit of the Sazerac will lead attendees in a second line to “storm” the world-renowned Sazerac Bar, where the spirited day continues with Sazerac cocktails in-hand.
Ladies are invited to dress in post-war New Orleans style, such as hats, veils, peep-toe shoes and gloves. Doors to the world famous Blue Room open at 12:45pm, and the celebration begins with the traditional ladies lunch at 1:00pm. Live entertainment will be provided, and the event will feature a fashion show showcasing vintage styles with a best-dressed competition.
Tickets to Storming of the Sazerac are pre-paid at time of purchase and are non-refundable. Guests must be 21 years of age or greater. Communal Seating.
