         “We’re thrilled to welcome Patrick as he leads our team at Bar R’evolution,” said Chef John Folse, managing partner and executive chef of Restaurant R’evolution. “He brings a tremendous wealth of knowledge to our craft cocktails and mixology program, and I’m confident he’ll help grow and expand Bar R’evolution’s reputation as a leading tastemaker in New Orleans.”

         Bar R'evolution offers chef-driven, seasonal cocktails inspired by modern takes on "gilded age" libations from the pre-Prohibition era. Its menu features reinterpretations of classic the libations like the Old Fashioned, Manhattan, Cobbler, Sour and the Absinthe Cocktail. The program incorporates small-batch local spirts and bitters, as well as house made syrups and chef-crafted ratafias, the French-influenced fruit cordials that have been produced in Louisiana kitchens for generations. Bar R'evolution also features an array of seasonally rotating craft beers from local breweries including Abita Brewing Company and NOLA Brewing. In addition, Restaurant R’evolution maintains a world-class selection of 10,000 bottles of wine from around the world, as well as a comprehensive wine-by-the-glass program to complement the bar’s cocktail selection.
