In the Voodoo faith tradition, "Loa" are divine spirits with roughly a one to one correlation to the pantheon Christian saints. The name suits the bar at International House because in it the city's contemporary spirit is evident. In the flickering glow of candlelight which someone playfully noted "softens not only the features but the defenses". In the opulent mix of texture and pattern selected by designer LM Pagano, the intangible exotic mix of Haitian French- Caribbean ways, with refined European sensibilities and in a sort of Sistine Chapel-esque religiosity found in heavily Catholic New Orleans. It's clear in the devoted patrons too, an effortless blend of visitors coupled with a nightly mix of young artists and entrepreneurs who fuel an impressive creative culture of invention in this long-admired city. Says Walter, "In this setting, the cup is literally replete with "spirits" possessed of the power to sharpen the tongue and dull the sword."

A cocktail paradise!

Great fresh herbs cleverly used in custom cocktails. A great atmosphere and with nice music in the background. The bartender was a genius. The perfect place to relax over a cocktail and where you can actually hear your conversation.

Took forever to get a drink and they don't have a large beer selection. The atmosphere is interesting with lounge areas and lots of lights. The bar fits the hotel.

We are so glad that you stopped in for a drink. While we do offer a large selection of amazing cocktails, our beer selection is limited to smaller craft batches. We do hope to see you again. More

Luxurious feel, great craft cocktails with friendly and informative bartenders. You could definitely sink into a couch and spend some time in there.

Just the right size, funky decorations around the bar/counter and excellent service and conversation with Steve and Adrienne. Wonderful cocktail offerings, decent wines by the glass, good variety of music playing in the background as opposed to night club levels. Can be very busy around early cocktail hour but great to stop in later for a night cap.

Dark lighting, moody atmosphere, and lots of unique drinks on the menu. Best Sazerac I had in NOLA. Not a ton of seating, though.

I love this bar. Love the copper bar, the divans, the lighting, even the smell (eucalyptus mint). Careful - fall for these pinnacles of cocktails, and fine drinks at other places will bore you. Ask for Steve - great barkeeper. Say hi to Alan and meet a genius....

This was my second time in New Orleans and I loved going back to Loa Bar for the amazing Delilah drink. If you are in New Orleans and looking for a place to loung in, enjoying a good conversation with friends this is definitely the place.

Nice handcrafted cocktails. Wine list a bit limited in the by-the-glass selection. Could use more cognac, etc. and after-dinner liqueurs.

I was very excited to try this lounge after reading about it. Before we left our hotel, we looked up the drink menu on-line and picked out our favorites to try, only to find out they only make a select few drinks from the list on the website. The bar is beautiful, but it took way too long to get... More
