I stopped in after wondering for some time about the place. It was empty but for a hotel guest, and my girlfriend and I still had to wait for petulant attention from the bartender. We both ordered featured drinks from the drinks menu provided, and the bartender needed the menu to then make the drinks. The drinks were terrible. My ""Perfect"" margarita was unbalanced, and without sugar or salt. My gal had a Grapefruit Basil Martini that had little basil, and less elegance in its making. I have been to the land of thumping music, low tables and couches, and beds in the middle of the lounge, where 14 dollar cocktails make sense and the vibe is great. This isn't that land. If you wish to hang out in a corporate estimation of a New York city lounge, go, enjoy. If you want a New Orleans experience or a decent drink, give it a miss.
