New Orleans – Summer Cocktail Launch at Knightsbridge Penthouse

by The Editor

Ah… the Big Easy:  sipping rum and feeling the humidity roll in to the sound of brass horns.  That’s the romance of New Orleans – a city rebuilding itself in the hope of achieving former glory.  A city pretty much as far from our little bush capital as can be – both conceptually and geographically.  A city that is the perfect inspiration for an evening dancing your cares away with a refreshing cocktail in hand.

Come Friday, a little bit of Treme arrives on Mort Street as Knightsbridge Penthouse celebrates their summer cocktail launch with a slice of funk and soul.

The colours of Mardi Gras – a celebration even more integral to the city than that held in Sydney – are purple, green and gold.  On top of that, the sky’s your limit with no limit to the feathers, sequins and sparkly things that can be adorned to your outfit regardless of whether you’re a girl or boy.

Also, voting is taking place to see whose artwork will replace the existing mural by E.L.K./Omar Musa that resides at the entrance to the bar.  You can see the finalists here.  Personally, we’re a fan of the unicorn.

It all starts from 6.00pm, with cocktails from the new list available until 8.00pm.  To get your party started, here’s one of our favourite New Orleans acts, which we’re more than happy to steal from the event’s Facebook page.
