@victorybarnola ... Victory lounge a new gem in New Orleans has only been open for 5 weeks. Own by Daniel Victory and Andrew Emery located at 339 Baronne Street in the CBD. While in New Orleans for a few makeup assignments my buddy Lane suggest that we all meet up at Victory. Still under the weather from Sundance Film Festival I was able to fix myself up to hang out and get cocktails.
With so many great drinks to choose from I selected the Schramsberg Brut Rose' champagne and my hubby selected Johnny Walker Black, soda, with a twist of lime. For a snack I just wanted to play with the truffle popcorn.
Both owners, Daniel & Andrew were working at the bar, they were very social, and humble. I found both to be extremely welcoming to all their patrons. I had a great time minus my eyes tearing every second, runny nose, and horrible cough. A relaxed lounge that I plan to visit every time I'm in New Orleans.
Carlyn...the sassy diva
Lane...my favorite buddy
