Stormin’ of the Sazerac
The Roosevelt New Orleans will pay tribute to the women of New Orleans and their legendary influence when it marks the 65th anniversary of the historic 1949 “Stormin’ of the Sazerac” on Friday, Sept. 26th.
The re-creation marks the occasion when women, normally admitted to the Sazerac Bar only on Mardi Gras, stormed the popular gathering place. Wearing the hats, veils, peep-toe shoes and gloves popular in post-war New Orleans they changed the Sazerac Bar forever.
