Polo Club Lounge at Windsor Court Reopens After Summer Expansion

NEW ORLEANS - September 21, 2016 - Windsor Court Hotel will unveil its newest expansion on Friday, September 23, when it reopens Polo Club Lounge after two months of restoration and expansion. Reminiscent of the private clubs of England, the rich, soft furnishings and dark woods will remain the same, but the addition of approximately 930 square feet will allow for more seating and an increase in performance space.


"We are excited to welcome guests back into Polo Club Lounge. It's the same, stylish venue that our regulars have always loved, but the refurbishment adds new elements to enhance the customer experience," said Windsor Court Director of Food and Beverage Joey Worley.


To complement the aesthetic revamp, a new menu created by The Grill Room Chef de Cuisine Gabriel Charpentier will boast an array of elevated pub fare. Small plate selections include Steak Tartare, a Crab and Crawfish Croquette and Bibb Salad, while larger offerings include Fish & Chips, the Windsor Burger Royale and a Crab Cake Po'Boy. The menu also features two varieties of Caviar, as well as shared selections of a Cheese Plate, Charcuterie and Oxtail Ragout Poutine, among others.


A popular venue for local jazz performers, the Polo Club Lounge's newly expanded wing, which boasts all new sound and lighting equipment, is the perfect backdrop for musical mainstay Robin Barnes. As the headliner on Friday and Saturday nights, she captivates audiences with her scintillating voice and melodic grace. Known as the Songbird of New Orleans, Barnes recently made the Billboard charts with her new album, "Songbird Sessions," which landed at No. 5 for Current Traditional Jazz Albums.


Other enhancements in Polo Club Lounge include new barstools and drapes, a refurbished bar top, and the addition of outlets along the bar so guests can charge their phones.


Windsor Court continues to welcome guests to Cocktail Bar, where Head Mixologist Kent Westmoreland wows locals and tourists alike with his twist on classic cocktails and where renowned jazz vocalist Anais St. John takes to the stage every Friday and Saturday evening.
