Celebrate in classic hospitality style and help us ’86’ 2014!
The term ’86’ has been used throughout the hospitality industry from as far back as the early 1900's. There are many stories over the years where the original term came from, but our favourite appears from the story of Chumley's Speakeasy in New York City during prohibition which reveals a bartender having a few "friends" working for the NYPD and being always tipped off when the bar was going to be raided. Police would tell the bartender he should '86' his guests which meant, make everyone leave via the 86 Bedford street door whilst the police would come to the Pamela Court entrance.
Now the term 86 is widely used in food and drink industry as a way of discreetly telling other members of staff that a product has reached it's end. At NOLA we are now saying 86 to the past year and offering VIP ticket holders a different cocktail every 86 minutes until the bar closes as well as a champagne drink served at midnight!
To celebrate New Years Eve we have our favourite band 'The Diavolo Trio', ushering out 2014 bringing 2015 in with a bang!
