New Orleans, so well known for her music, food, and spirits, has surprisingly few venues that offer a high quality sampling of all three. One of these rare places is The Bombay Club, a lovely candlelit spot tucked away in the heart of the French Quarter at 830 Conti Street. Although the club is located just a short half-block from the infamous Bourbon Street, its ambiance is miles away. Our guests often refer to The Club as an "oasis in the French Quarter."
The Bombay Club is decorated in a plush British Gentleman's Club theme; with overstuffed leather wingback chairs, rich wood, fine portraits, and features a lovely small courtyard. It feels like a living room - albeit a slightly finer living room than most of us are lucky enough to experience. In one corner of the club, live music is played nightly.
The Bombay Club is also beloved for the delicious Nouveau Creole food prepared by Executive Chef Nick Gile. Chef Gile's food has received accolades including several recent awards including 2014 New Orleans Wine and Food Experience Bronze Medal, 2014 Open Table Diners Choice Award, 2014 Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence. The Club was also recently voted one of the Top 5 "Most Romantic Restaurants" by the diners on OpenTable. In addition, The Bombay Club retained it's usual position as "Best Martini Bar" in the New Orleans Gambit magazine Best of New Orleans locals vote for the 13th year in a row. Others, from local reviewer Tom Fitzmorris to national sources such as Sante Magazine and MSNBC.com have stated tha "it's a pleasure to find food as well crafted as this, even in a city renowned for its food."
Our leather bound cocktail menu showcases Martinis and cocktails from the 1860s to present day. The menu is also peppered with historical facts about the cocktails offered. There is also a Champagne cocktail section beginning from the 1860s, as well as a variety of low calorie "skinny" Martinis and cocktails. We offer an extensive selection of single malt Scotches, cordials, Cognacs, Ports, Bourbons, and gins as well as several quality wines are offered by the glass. We have a top flight staff dedicated to bringing first class service to every one of our guests.
In short, the Bombay Club is exactly the sort of place that many people dream of enjoying in New Orleans but cannot seem to find. It's decadent, but tasteful; delicious, but not stuffy; filled with great music, but never deafening. This local treasure should be on every visitor's "must see list" in the Crescent City!
