Vive Bar offers discounts depending on the height of your heels, but the men in heels always get 50% off drink prices.

The chic modern Vive! bar features a selection of signature cocktails.

A bold and modern decor with LED lighting sets the tone for a sophisticated and stylish evening. This chic lounge opens into our French Quarter courtyard where you will find a heated saltwater pool, outdoor bar and plush lounge furniture.

Happy Hour prices, big discounts for those in heels !

Rich hues and personal touches by Patrick reflect the warm and relaxed atmosphere.
