The Authentic New Orleans Experience

Unveiled in March 2009, Irvin Mayfield’s Jazz Playhouse has quickly become one of the finest jazz clubs in the south. Headlined by Irvin Mayfield,  Grammy-Award winning trumpeter,  the Playhouse presents authentic New Orleans jazz seven nights a week.
In January 2010, the landmark hotel partnered with PJ’s Coffee, the “Locals Favorite Coffee House,” to open the first café concept for the brand, PJ’s Coffee Café, on Bourbon Street. New Orleans favorite coffee is now on the city’s most recognizable street. 
Offering  modern, imaginative reinterpretations of classic Cajun and Creole cuisine, Restaurant R'evolution opened in June 2012 as the first joint-venture of award-winning chefs John Folse and Rick Tramonto.  Sunday Jazz Brunch, weekday Lunch and Dinner nightly is a cross-cultural fusion of food flavors built on the culinary history of the seven nations that contributed to its unique flavor.
For a casual street-side dining experience, try Desire Bistro & Oyster Bar offering fresh seafood specialties as well as New Orleans' famous creole recipes for breakfast, lunch or dinner daily. Relax at the historic oyster bar and be entertained by our oyster shuckers as they open and serve fresh salty Louisiana oysters.
