The locally beloved
library-turned-bar located on Carondelet Street,
Bar Marilou, has officially announced that its doors are open to patrons once
again, as of Wednesday, October 14. Of course, constant and careful attention
will be paid to the safety guidelines laid out by the CDC. Masks will be
necessary as well as social distancing, but anyone who frequents establishments
like Bar Marilou is assuredly an old hand at these practices. If you have yet

cocktails of your choice, be they the Tokyo Record or the Brave Margot, as well
as the signature small plates of hors d'oeuvres that Bar Marilou is known for.
Additional bits of food, such as burrata and charcuterie, are available
alongside the Deux Fois Deux special as well.

restaurants, the continual loosening of regulations over time will hopefully
result in more joyful resurrections like Bar Marilou's.
