New Orleans has often been named one of the most romantic cities in the country—and for good reason. The city has endless restaurants, bars, historic locales and scenery to take in—so much of which is perfect for a romantic evening like Valentine’s Day. Here are a few of the best spots you can try this year.
Columns Hotel (Uptown – 3811 St. Charles Ave)
With the Columns Hotel, you have two options for enjoying each other’s company and the atmosphere around you. Outside is an expansive, picturesque porch that overlooks St. Charles Ave, and you can enjoy not only each other but the quaint scenery and sound of the streetcar as it whirrs by. Inside is a dimly lit bar and room of candlelit tables perfect for cozying up and feeling the intimate vibes passing between you both. Either setting you choose, you can enjoy decadent classic New Orleans cocktails, such as a fantastic Pimm’s Cup or to-die-for Sazerac, and a delightful bistro menu with tasty options that are perfect for sharing.
