SoFAB is pleased to announce the Cirque de Cuisine to benefit the Southern Food & Beverage Museum.

The Tour is a behind-the-scenes view of ten of the French Quarter’s most beautiful homes. Guests will be invited to stroll at their leisure through the 10 homes and courtyards.

The Tour begins at the Bourbon Orleans Hotel (717 Orleans St.) where guests obtain tickets, maps and wristbands. Guests are also invited to stop by the Melrose Mansion, where Patrick's Bar Vin will be pouring champagne.

At each home, one of the city’s finest restaurants will serve a one-bite serving of a tasty sweet or savory treat and a delicious beverage, such as a cocktail, wine, beer or soft drink.

Restaurants include: Toups South, MayPop, Broussard’s, Two Girls One Shuck, Cajun Caviar, Mayhew Bakery, Stokehold, Grand Isle, Opal Basil, Briquette, WJ Smokehouse, EAT, Magic Seasonings, Dee-lightful Cupcakes, and more.

Check in at the Bourbon Orleans Hotel (717 Orleans St.) of the New Orleans Hotel Collection to pick up your wristband and map. Check-in opens at 12:30 PM and will close at 4 PM to allow enough time to explore the houses. Tickets may also be purchased at the door until 4 PM. Tickets are $55 in advance, $45 for SoFAB/NatFAB Members, and $65 at the door.

Make it a Staycation!

The Bourbon Orleans is offering a very special “staycation” rate for this tour for SUNDAY night following the tour.  We know drinks are being served, and we encourage responsible drinking.  Guests can register by going to, and know that the rate offered is below anything found on Expedia or other online travel site.
