The Sazerac Bar was in the spotlight in New Orleans March 5, from dawn almost to dusk, with live television comments by general manager Tod Chambers and the third Sazerac Roundtable.

Starting off the day was Chambers’ appearance on the WGNO-TV/ABC26 morning news, where he brought the station’s viewers up to date on the reopening of the hotel and, in particular, the re-launch of the fabled Sazerac Bar. Reporter Lorin Gaudin and the morning crew interviewed Chambers as bartender Michael Glassberg prepared Sazerac cocktails on the set, carefully following the drink’s recipe. “The Sazerac Bar once again will shine with the fabulous Paul Ninas murals originally painted in the 1930s,” Chambers said, “and the bar will reclaim its place as one of America’s finest cocktail destinations.”

Later that day, approximately 45 invited guests gathered at the French 75 Bar at Arnaud’s Restaurant to share stories about the Sazerac Bar, the Sazerac cocktail and the hotel itself. Chambers, as well as director of sales and marketing Mark Wilson, welcomed guests who included members of the news media, community leaders, business owners and others who are looking forward to the June 2009 reopening.
