If the New Orleans bar scene were a monarchy, the historic Sazerac Bar in the glamorous Roosevelt Hotel might be queen. The sinuous wood walls and Deco-era murals here have borne witness to movie stars, political scandals, and we don’t want to know what (check the bullet hole in the paneling to the left of the bar). You’re here for all that panache as much as the namesake cocktail. Bar service could be friendlier, but never mind, the ambience is stellar.
