In classical mythology, the Elysian Fields was paradise—the abode of the blessed after death. More modern interpretations use the phrase “Elysian Fields” to describe the feeling of bliss after visiting a special kind of place. Of course, Elysian Fields Avenue is a main thoroughfare separating the Marigny Neighborhood into its Triangular (“Marigny Triangle”) and Rectangular (“Marigny Rectangle”) shapes. The space’s namesake is also an homage to the Hotel’s and Bar’s geographic roots.
The Elysian Bar will cultivate paradise and exude bliss through carefully curated food and beverage, plus well rounded hospitality.
For more than 150 years, Sts. Peter and Paul church, school house, convent and rectory, stood at the corner of Burgundy and Mandeville street in the heart of the Marigny. The Elysian Bar is located on the ground floor of the former Rectory space.
