New Troubadour Hotel to open three food-and-beverage outlets

The Troubadour is a Joie de Vivre hotel, a brand of Commune Hotels & Resorts.

New Orleans chef Phillip Lopez will open three new venues at The Troubadour, a new hotel opening in the city in November.

On the hotel's ground floor, Lopez will run Petit Lion. The 80-seat restaurant will be a modern Parisian bistro.

Petit Lion will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.

HOTEL OPTIMIZATION PART 2 | SEPTEMBER 10 & 24, 2020

Survival in these times is highly dependent on a hotel's ability to quickly adapt and pivot their business to meet the current needs of travelers and the surrounding community. Join us for Optimization Part 2 – a FREE virtual event – as we bring together top players in the industry to discuss alternative uses when occupancy is down, ways to boost F&B revenue, how to help your staff adjust to new challenges and more, in a series of panels focused on how you can regain profitability during this crisis.


On The Troubadour's second floor, Lopez will run The Troubadour Lounge. Bartender T. Cole Newton, the owner of Twelve Mile Limit, will create the drinks at the lounge and all the other outlets at the hotel.

On The Troubadour's roof, Lopez will run a roof-top bar called the Monkey Board. The venue, 17 floors above the ground, has a 360-degree view of the city.

The kitchen will serve global "food truck-style" fare, like chilaquiles with Oaxacan mole or black garlic hummus.

Monkey Board's casual menu will also include shareable drinks and, for dessert, a birthday cake covered in colored sprinkles and sized for four.

The rooftop bar, named after the highest platform on offshore oil rigs, will regularly host bands and DJs.
