A rich dog? A 50 foot bar made out of Mardi Gras beads? A party simply called “Bitch”!? All of these things happened in the building we call home. 80 years is a long time and The Quisby, née Audubon Hotel, has been living it up.

And this recent article from St. Charles Avenue Magazine does a pretty good job capturing the weird we inherited (and try to live up to every day).

There is other stuff too. Stuff you can’t put in a glossy magazine. Pull up a seat at the bar sometime and talk to us, we’ve got stories 😉
