When I first came to New Orleans, I took a stroll around the Marigny and Bywater area. To my surprise, I stumbled across a hidden jewel, The Elysian Bar at Hotel Peter and Paul. It's become my secret haven for a glass of prosecco or just an evening alone at the bar. It's authenticity to New Orleans can be seen throughout the decor and courtyards. It's my absolutely favorite place for a lazy day in the city but away from the city!
