Review: Patience Is a Virtue Well-Rewarded at this New Orleans Hotel Bar

Forbes

July 14, 2019

The Elysian Bar in New Orleans’ Marigny neighborhood occupies the 150-year-old rectory of Saints Peter & Paul. Set behind a gated garden of pygmy palms, the building is an inviting confection of brick and marzipan stucco. I don’t so much walk through the arched doorway as a magnetizing presence inside summons me forth, the single gas lantern flickering above my head like biblical tongues.
A long hallway stretches down the first floor of the former clergy quarters. There’s a snug coffee bar to the right. Two adjoining parlors to the left are lit and furnished for the sequel to Interview With the Vampire: ornately mantled fireplaces, cane chairs with crimson cushions, marble tables with legs shaped like sea serpents, eruptions of ferns and blood-purple flowers, body-length gold mirrors, bustled and billowing mustard drapes framing a burgundy gingham sofa like a theater stage…

Church and school in New Orleans are reborn as a stylish boutique hotel

Dallas News

June 11, 2019

The brown-brick block-long complex still looks exactly the same as when it was a church built in 1860, a rectory and convent afterward, and a school built in 1900. It gives no hint to the stylish boutique hotel within, a remarkable preservation whose church is now a stained-glass-windowed event space. Altar candlesticks have been repurposed as lamps, and the rectory is now a bar whose libations and food are from Bacchanal, a local wine shop whose huge backyard is the site of a perennial night party where live bands play.
The Hotel Peter & Paul is filled with hundreds of antiques from Europe, work by New Orleans artisans, armoires painted in trompe l’oeil designs and gingham galore. It’s in a neighborhood not known for hotels, the Faubourg Marigny, right next to the French Quarter…
