Although the city of New Orleans may be notorious for its lively, Hurricane-sipping Bourbon Street crowd, there are quite a few places in the city where you can bypass that crowd and instead enjoy a grandiose cocktail in a more relaxed setting. Among those places is the Polo Club Lounge in the Windsor Court Hotel and just in time for this weekend’s big game they’ve introduced a new menu of Luxury Cocktails (emphasis on luxury). Prices for the cocktails start at $16 and go all the way up to $10,000. I’m sure you’re wondering what kind of cocktail costs $10,000. Well, it’s called the “Key To The City” and is a cobbler that’s made using 1907 D’Oliveiras Malvazia madeira.
Now if you’re thinking the “Key To The City” and the $2,000 “Key To The Court” are a little pricey for just a cocktail then fret not because the price also includes a souvenir gold key and a return stay to the Windsor Court Hotel which includes a ton of perks while you’re there.
