Jewel of the South

4.7 (364)


Summary: A nod to historic New Orleans bars.

Jewel of the South, a charming establishment set in a 19th-century Creole cottage, pays homage to the city's historic drinking scene with a contemporary twist. The venue spans two floors and features a secret garden courtyard, making it a cozy spot for enjoying bespoke cocktails or classic drinks with a twist. Phil Whitmarsh's New American food program complements the beverage offerings, and while the place is often busy, making a reservation is a good idea. With its inviting atmosphere and a selection of cocktails, caviar, steaks, and brunch options, Jewel of the South stands out as a tribute to the city's vibrant history.
