Things to Do on Christmas Day

Plan to be there around Christmas. Are there anything you can do on Christmas Day - I assume everything is closed and for our meals, we'll have to rely on the room service / hotel restaurants ? Thanks in advance!

I would check open table for restaurants accepting reservations. I do know that the Erin Rose Bar on Conti st has a free buffet open to anyone on Christmas day. As for things to do simply walking around taking pictures of the Christmas decorations would be fun and City Park has Celebration in the Oaks.

Do a search on the forum. Look up Christmas. There have been several discussions in the last week. We’ll be there Christmas. Plan on going to Pat O’Briens Christmas party. Go to City Park to see the lights. Go into several hotels to see their decorations. On Nola.com they will post different ideas for eating drinking and having fun shortly. On Christmas morning we have reservations at Oceana Grille.

New Orleans hotels have some of the best restaurants in the city. Not a bad thing on Christmas Day. From a previous post:

"It will be quiet Christmas Day in New Orleans. The Roosevelt Hotel used to serve a Christmas Buffet in the ballroom, but you would have to call to confirm. The Ritz Carlton Hotel has a very nice spread, half plated/half buffet. Both are pricey, upwards of $90 pp and maybe half that price for kids under 12 or so. Both would be dressy affairs as well.

Most restaurants are closed Christmas Day with the exception of hotel restaurants. Luke (Hilton), Domenica (Roosevelt), R'evolution (Royal Sonesta), Café Adelaide (Loew's), Borgne (Hyatt Regency). And there are more. Check their websites closer to Christmas to see if they are serving a limited menu.

Kingfish on Chartres is normally open on holidays and has decent southern food.

Greyline tours does a bus tour through New Orleans on Christmas Day starting at 10AM

As part of the Christmas Day activities, I would be sure to include the lobbies of the Roosevelt, and the Monteleone, then in the evening, Fulton St.

Enjoy,

Hunt
