The Bar.

The Civic has teamed up with renowned mixologist Neal Bodenheimer, of Cure and Bellocq, to create the Civic Signature Cocktail menu. Our drinks are created from American-made small-batch spirits, using organic ingredients and craft-cocktail techniques. Our aim is to buck the norm by providing theatergoers with a pleasant surprise: drinks created with wit and care.

The History.

Built in 1906, the Civic Theatre is the oldest in New Orleans. The building is a beautiful historic structure, and care hats been taken at every step to preserve these details. Original touches, such as the beaux arts plaster work that graces the stage and balconies, connect contemporary theatergoers with past generations who first enjoyed the theater.
