Wanderfest Bar Crawl

Seeker Editors

Join us on March 12, 2022 from 8-11pm as we take you on a taste of the Big Easy. We’ll start our stepping near the French Quarter. The more places we hit, the more lit it’s gonna get. But you’ll be going at your own pace–so follow this list and look for the Seeker rep at each spot. For every bar you check-into on Seeker, you'll score a free lagniappe, or "a little extra" in Cajun-French. We've worked with some of Nola's best mixologists to create an experience you won't forget.

      The Dovetail Bar is a craft cocktail venue located in the lobby of the Schaeffer Hotel; a newly completed boutique hotel on the periphery of the French Quarter. The historic building, constructed in 1923, was originally built as a showroom and workshop for Alsatian furniture purveyor J.P. Schaeffer. The original structure of the building exhibits a bygone Heavy Timber structural system made of large cypress beams and columns, with heart pine decking and floors. Historic wood assemblies will be represented directly throughout the design of the Dovetail Bar, featuring reclaimed wood from the original structure and the subtle narrative of furniture joinery details. The technical conversation continues with interlocking cocktail concepts and the precision of a professional bar team. As a result, the Dovetail Bar showcases the spirit of the building in multiple facets, paying direct homage to the original furniture company & store.
