This much talked about boutique hotel in downtown NO has a fine grotto of a lounge bar to kick back in before a night on the town and, being only two blocks from the French Quarter, we suggest you do just that. Set on the ground floor of the hotel, it’s an intimate bare-brick space with puffy couches to recline on and windows that open onto the street outside. Order Martinis or Manhattans and watch the hotel guests come and go – there’s often a good selection of New York models or Californian blondes to keep you occupied. The interior is done up in those soft, relaxed grey and beige tones that seem so popular these days, maybe because they make you feel as if you’re in someone’s stylishly understated living room. Which is, we suppose, the point of Loft.
