The New Orleans Hotel Collection Unveils a New French Quarter Wine Bar Opening on Bastille Day, July 14th
Patrick’s Bar Vin, located at the Saint Louis Hotel, to Feature Private Wine Lockers

NEW ORLEANS – July 5, 2011 - The New Orleans Hotel Collection has announced a new wine bar to open on July 14, 2011 (Bastille Day), the new Patrick’s Bar Vin located at the Saint Louis Hotel in the heart of New Orleans’ historic French Quarter district. Listed in recent press as a part of New Orleans’ wine bar renaissance, the opening will coincide with Bastille Day festivities being celebrated throughout the city with parades, wine and traditional costumes.

The opening celebration will include an invitation-only patron’s party from 5:00 pm until 8:00 pm on July 14th, and the wine bar will then open to the general public on the following day, Friday, July 15th. The new bar is located adjacent to the Saint Louis Hotel, at 730 Bienville Street, with a separate street entrance from Bienville Street. For more information, visit the website: www.patricksbarvin.com.

The venue has undergone renovations, having been closed for six months in order to completely renew the interior and facilitate the addition of 36 temperature controlled private wine lockers. These special lockers are available for individuals to rent on an annual basis in order to store their private selection of fine wines. Although the complement of lockers is already sold out for the year, an official waiting list has begun. Consultation on the selection of the wine is available compliments of manager Patrick Van Hoorebeek.

The bar gets its name from Patrick Van Hoorebeek, a 25-year wine bar, restaurant manager and self styled bon vivant who made a name for himself while maitre d’ for the fashionable Bistro de la Maison Deville Restaurant for 18 years. Van Hoorebeek has also served at the Rib Room, Peristyle’s and August. At this new bar, he plans to have found a long time home, dispensing his sage advice and general savoir faire about wines.

“Wine will be the main attraction,” said Van Hoorebeek. “Since I am Belgian, however, we will have a full bar complement including a wide range of beers. Chef Agnes Bellet, a French-born chef and veteran of Louis the XVI Restaurant at the Saint Louis Hotel, will be offering a menu of small plates served in the bar typical of traditional French wine bars and cafés, including endive salad, French onion soup, charcuterie and cheese selections.”

Van Hoorebeek’s long tenure in New Orleans has led to his creation of the Krewe de Cork, a Mardi Gras group and year-round collection of bon vivants who will doubtless be a part of his opening and success at the new bar.

Patrick’s Bar Vin joins several other well known establishments located within the hotels of the New Orleans Hotel Collection, including May Baily’s Place, the Bourbon O!, Vive!, 7 on Fulton Restaurant, Roux on Orleans, Napoleon’s Itch Wine and Martini Bar, and the Landing Restaurant.
