It’s Friday, August 22 and 12:54am in Downtown New Orleans.
Where legends came to play.
Located amongst the flurry of excitement on Canal Street, the Grunewald quickly established itself as a centerpiece of the city's acclaimed entertainment scene. The Cave, largely regarded as one of the country's first nightclubs, kept revelers up all hours of the night dancing to the early sounds of Dixieland jazz.
Though the famous basement nightclub closed when the Grunewald era ended, the tradition of entertainment lived on at The Roosevelt's new venues-the Blue Room and The Sazerac Bar. The famous, infamous and anonymous all flocked to The Roosevelt for live performances or just to grab a drink at the legendary establishments.
A rebirth 60 years in the making.
Soon after The Fairmont's closing in 2005, the legendary property was purchased and plans were made to return it to its original magnificence and former name-The Roosevelt. Now, after a $145 million restoration, The Roosevelt is reborn with all the grandeur of old New Orleans and the modern amenities exceeding the standards of today's luxury hotels.
