The Ace Hotel New Orleans officially opened its doors Monday morning as Shamarr Allen and Jason Butler christened the space with tunes from Buddy Bolden, Ella Fitzgerald, and James Booker.
Occupying the former Max Barnett Furniture Store in a 1920s Art Deco style building, the Ace Hotel is home to a range of restaurants and retailers including Stumptown Coffee and Josephine Estelle, from Andy Ticer and Michael Hudman. In May, Friend, a men’s clothing boutique, will open its doors as will a seafood and cocktail bar from New Orleans natives Alex and Miles Pincus in the building adjacent to the hotel.
The Ace Hotel’s music venue, Three Keys, features a diverse range of local artists every night of the week and a special schedule for Jazz Fest. After catching a show, you’ll want to check out the rooftop pool and cocktail bar, Alto.
We’re excited to welcome the Ace Hotel to its new home in New Orleans!
