This cozy new coffee bar also offers pastries, retail, to go, wifi and a lounge area where to work.
It is located in the lobby of the Schaeffer Hotel, a newly completed boutique hotel on the periphery of the French Quarter. The historic building, constructed in 1923, was originally built as a showroom and workshop for Alsatian furniture purveyor J.P Schaeffer. Historic wood assemblies are directly represented throughout the design of the Dovetail Bar, featuring reclaimed wood from the original structure and the subtle narrative of furniture joinery details. The technical conversation continues with interlocking cocktails, coffee concepts, and the precision of a professional team.
The Dovetail Bar, Cocktails & Coffee showcases the spirit of the building in multiple facets paying direct homage to the original furniture company and store. Dovetail Coffee Bar features beans from local roasters, making it the place to enjoy a cup of New Orleans with its colorful stone bar, exposed wood, and carefully crafted beverages. Its strategic location within the CBD makes it accessible. Whether you like the classics such as a cup of drip or café au lait or if you are into dashing creations such as Dovetail’s espresso tonic or the Euripides, a Sweet, citrusy and bold blend of espresso and orange juice, this coffee shop is not a good detour but a great new destination.
Occupying the same space as the Coffee Bar, the Cocktail Bar opened first, six months after its opening, its beverage director, Will Lester was awarded the rising stars bartender award.
