Ryan Gootee General Contractors To Renovate ‘The Sazerac House,’ New Museum Space

NEW ORLEANS – Ryan Gootee General Contractors has been selected to renovate “The Sazerac House,” and plans are being finalized by Trapolin-Peer Architects for the nearly 50,000 total square foot facility, company reps said.

         The historic renovation is scheduled to be completed by late 2018.  Upon completion, Sazerac is projecting 100,000 visitors in its first year of operation, Gootee reps said.

         The Sazerac Company, an American family-owned company based in New Orleans since 1850, purchased two buildings on the corner of Canal and Magazine Street, adjacent to the Sheraton Hotel, and only a few hundred yards from the original 1850 Sazerac Coffee House site. The company plans to rehabilitate the nearly 200 year-old buildings into The Sazerac House visitor attraction and beverage alcohol museum, Gootee reps said.

         Project reps said guests will be able to learn about the spirited history of the iconic Sazerac Cocktail, the official cocktail of New Orleans, as well as many other original New Orleans brands. They’ll also get to explore the unique role New Orleans has played in the bourbon and rum industries and in American cocktail culture.

         The buildings will also include a gift shop and Sazerac company offices, with a projection of 60 employees eventually working there, 45 of which will be new positions, Gootee reps said.

         Ryan Gootee General Contractors, LLC, is a licensed commercial general contractor in the greater New Orleans area with extensive experience in design-assist historic restoration and renovation work.
