Inspired by the food, drinks, culture and rich history of New Orleans, Louisiana (or NOLA for short).  

laissez le bon temps rouleR

Serving quality interpretations of classic New Orleans food and libations and working alongside New Orleans bartenders, we strive to bring an exciting and unique experience to London that feels right at home in the Crescent City.

Our Cajun and Creole kitchen is inspired by the finest restaurants in New Orleans. Our chefs have prepared a menu that pays homage to the city’s storied past while bringing their understanding and training in classical French cuisine to the forefront.

The interior takes its inspiration from the historic architecture the Crescent City is famous for. With a unique blend of exposed brickwork, original Georgian fireplaces, vintage panelled walls, Tiffany lamps, Blues and Jazz soundtrack, and comfortable down-home sophistication NOLA | Roman Road transports guests away from the bustling Bourbon Street vibe of New Orleans into the grandeur, hidden deep inside the Vieux Carré for a night you'll never forget.

We are proud to be established as the only bar or restaurant outside of North America that has been awarded the 'Seal of The Sazerac' by the founders of the week-long New Orleans festival, Tales Of The Cocktail.




"NOLA | Roman Road is Our love letter to the most exciting and vibrant city on earth."
