Catahoula Hotel: Cabana-chic and dog friendly

New Orleans’ Catahoula Hotel slays the hotel bar, Insta-perfect decor and vegan-Chinese fusion.

We recommend this 35-room boutique hotel (a refreshing change from mega-chains) for 20-something trend-seekers, group travelers and dog lovers. The Catahoula, named for Louisiana’s state pooch, is dog friendly!  

Rooms feature fabulous rain showers and incredibly comfy mattresses. For group travelers, the Catahoula offers a unique bunk room that sleeps four singles in bunk beds.

In the lobby, New Orleans’ Catahoula Hotel’s Pisco Bar gives us laid back Havana vibes.

Craft cocktail fans will swoon over a menu that puts pisco — un-aged grape brandy and Peru’s signature spirit — center stage. Order the Judgy Parrot if you’re adventurous; the Pisco Sour for an intro to the classics. 

Come early to grab a table at the award-winning street pop-up-turned-eatery Midnight Noodle, recently named the best vegan fare in Nola. If you’re lucky, you’ll get a chance to say “hi” to hardworking Chef Melvin Stovall.

Don’t miss the Potstickers, Shroomy Udon and greens of the day. Just come prepared for spice!

Catahoula Hotel highlights: dog friendly, great lobby bar, fun common spaces, stellar pop-up restaurant Midnight Noodle.
