Our on-site restaurant, Latitude 29, has gotten plenty of buzz since its opening last fall. From stellar Yelp reviews to write-ups in Eater NOLA, Nola.com, and more, Latitude 29 and its owner, Jeff “Beachbum” Berry, are reviving the long-lost art of tiki cocktails to delicious effect. The restaurant is open from 3 p.m. until 11 p.m. with a full menu of food and drink, but we’d like to highlight their happy hour.
Not only is happy hour a daily occurrence at Latitude 29 (from 3 p.m. until 6 p.m.), but it’s also a chance to try special menu items only available during happy hour.
Favorite Happy Hour Bites:
One of our favorite happy hour treats is the French Fry Bahn Mi – a decadent and delicious steal at $5 a la carte. Chef Chris Shortall drew inspiration from his favorite sandwich and dressed it up with house-made pickled vegetables, homemade gravy, soy sauce mayonnaise, crispy French fries, and bread from a local Vietnamese bakery. It’s vegetarian (so is the Tofu Banh Mi, another happy hour addition), so it’s healthy… right?
Steak Frites — When those hunger pangs strike, you need to fight them with their Steak Frites: 8 ounces of flatiron steak, coconut butter, fries with soy sauce mayo, and a dollop of Sriracha.
Wings – Nothing pairs better with happy hour drinks than happy hour wings. Get a 1/2 dozen for only 8 bucks!
Favorite Happy Hour Sips:
If savory sandwiches are making you thirsty, try ordering the Snow Leopard. Available for $8 during happy hour, this drink is a delightful mix of sweet and savory. Jamaican and Virgin Island rums with coconut cream, and lime pair up with unexpected ingredients like caraway seed liqueur, Thai sweet chili sauce, and cilantro for a complex and totally delicious drink.
Mambo Diablo — Dance with the devil and you work up a thirst. Quench it with Peruvian Pisco, lemon, blackberry, and hazelnut.
Little Bird — Demerara and Virgin Islands rums take flight with lime, pineapple, and New Orleans chicory liqueur. A short drink with a long finish.
Paul of the Jungle — Named for Paul Gustings, famed bartender at Empire Bar in Broussard’s, a trio of Italian aperitivi embitter this mix of lime, pineapple, bourbon, and blackstrap rum.
Other happy hour menu items include a crisp meat pie with pickled pineapple and watermelon rind, plus all the awesome, tropical-inspired drinks you’ve come to expect from Latitude 29.
