Arnaud's To Become First Restaurant In The World To Feature Champagne Vending Machine
Moët & Chandon champagne vending machine
NEW ORLEANS – Arnaud’s patrons will be among the first to experience a one-of-a-kind champagne vending machine, as part of a partnership with Moët & Chandon, from April 13 - 16, at Arnaud’s French 75 Bar, 813 Bienville St.
The machine will be stocked with 320 mini bottles of the champagne maker’s Imperial Brut.
To make a purchase, guests can acquire Moët-branded gold coins available for $20 at Arnaud’s French 75 Bar. The machine carefully dispenses each bottle without shaking them. Each mini bottle comes with a Moët-branded spout for guests to drink immediately and directly from the bottle.
Arnaud’s is the first restaurant in the world to feature the state-of-the-art device. The other two machines in existence are displayed in hotels in Las Vegas. The bubbly dispenser was born in the UK two years ago.
Arnaud’s French 75 Bar is open at 5:30 p.m. nightly. Named a James Beard Award finalist three years in a row and recognized as one of the “Top Ten Bars in America” by Esquire magazine, the French 75 Bar offers classic cocktails in an intimate setting, restaurant reps said.
