The Authentic New Orleans Experience

Unveiled in March 2009, Irvin Mayfield’s Jazz Playhouse has quickly become on 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. Coming soon to the Royal Sonesta Hotel is a cross-cultural fusion of food and flavors between award-winning Chefs John Folse and Rick Tramonto. Restaurant R’evolution, the chef’s first joint venture, will offer classic Cajun and Creole cuisine with a modern feel. The restaurant is slated to open in June 2012, is a result of a fresh translation of the history and traditions that define New Orleans.
