This summer, the W New Orleans will help you keep cool, stay fit, and have fun in the French Quarter. Starting Memorial Day weekend and running through Labor Day, the W will open their WET deck on the weekends for swimming, lounging, enjoying signature cocktails, and appreciating the dance tunes of DJ Jammin’ Jorge from 1 to 3 PM on Sundays; a $20 pass will score you admission and two cocktails. Make sure to mark your calendars for Dive-In Movie Nights, offered monthly on June 17, July 15, and August 19, where you can catch a flick poolside as the sun sets and your buzz sets in.
For only $5/class, the W will be offering SWEAT to WET, a New Orleans-inspired fitness program alternating between Backyard Bounce, a bounce-inspired dance class taught by Jenny Leigh, and Stretch Ya Brass, a yoga class led by renowned Bella Blue that’ll have you flowing to the beat. Classes will be on Thursdays at 6 PM in the courtyard.
SoBou Bar will be hosting Barpreneurs Power Lunch at noon on Fridays for budding entrepreneurs to get insight and guidance from established professionals, along with Legs and Eggs Burlesque Brunch on Sundays from 11:30 to 1:30, featuring world famous burlesque dancer Bella Blue. Oh, and don’t forget about SoBou’s Happier Hour running daily from 3 to 6 PM with drinks and eats ranging from $3 to $6.
