The Blue Room
The Blue Room opened in the 1930s and now serves brunch against a similarly musical backdrop. In the early
days, bands passed through the Roosevelt’s supper club with troupes of
dancers and comedians. Later it became a preferred stop for legends such as Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, and Marlene Dietrich. Rock and roll changed the entertainment business, but somehow the Blue Room survived. Today, it opens every Sunday for brunch. Clarinetist Tim Laughlin plays swinging beats. The atmosphere remains elegant. And New Orleanians young and old still celebrate birthdays under the Blue Room’s crystal chandeliers. Overall a truly memorable place to eat in New Orleans.
