Proof of Vaccination or Negative Test Result Required

The City of New Orleans requires every customer to present proof of vaccination or a negative test result from within the last 72 hours in order to be served or remain on the premesis.

Both the City of New Orleans and State of Louisiana require you wear a mask at all times when not seated at a table.

We are all in this together, and the science says vaccinations and masks save lives. If you don't agree, we'll happily welcome you back when the pandemic is over.
