Classic NOLA Cocktails

New Orleans, Louisiana – affectionately called NOLA – is home to both jazz and an exciting range of cocktails. Known for keeping the alcohol flowing during Prohibition, NOLA has a rich history of innovative and crowd-pleasing drinks.

If you’re looking for a classic NOLA cocktail, then look no further than NOLA Sydney. Our bar menu features some of the most iconic cocktails from New Orleans like their Sazerac, Vieux Carré and Hurricane.

Our cocktail bar in Barangaroo also offers fresh twists on these classics. Swap brandy for rye whiskey with a Modern Sazerac, or explore an intriguing half-and-half option with the New York Sazerac.

And of course, we offer a range of unforgettable Old Fashioned whiskey cocktails. With an exhaustive whiskey selection to choose from, our talented bar staff is sure to be able to create something to suit your tastes.

Don’t see your favourite drink in our cocktail menu? Just ask our skilled bartenders – if they know it, they’ll mix it for you. And with Sydney’s largest collection of whiskey, we’re happy to make you an Old Fashioned any way you like.
