This place reminded me of a swanky NYC lounge on the edge of the French Quarter. Really good cocktails, made with care. Good, relaxed vibe, in a city where that atmosphere is hard to come by.

Again, this hotel smells good, it has the smell of spices. The drinks are different, and they have a happy hour. Definitely Worth trying some of them. :)

We had a rather large party in the Loa Bar. Everyone enjoyed! Lots of seating. We ordered a rather large cheese tray for the party and the Loa took care of all details. Excellent choice for a wedding hotel.

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts

In the Voodoo faith tradition, "Loa" are divine spirits with roughly a one to one correlation to the pantheon Christian saints. The name suits the bar at International House because in it the city's contemporary spirit is evident. In the flickering glow of candlelight which someone playfully noted "softens not only the features but the defenses". In the opulent mix of texture and pattern selected by designer LM Pagano, the intangible exotic mix of Haitian French- Caribbean ways, with refined European sensibilities and in a sort of Sistine Chapel-esque religiosity found in heavily Catholic New Orleans. It's clear in the devoted patrons too, an effortless blend of visitors coupled with a nightly mix of young artists and entrepreneurs who fuel an impressive creative culture of invention in this long-admired city. Says Walter, "In this setting, the cup is literally replete with "spirits" possessed of the power to sharpen the tongue and dull the sword."
