The Bombay Club & Martini Bistro
Delicious destinations in the heart of the French Quarter, specializing in fine creole cuisine along with the best and largest martini selection in New Orleans — single malt scotches, ports, reserved bourbons and premium cigars.
Guests of the Prince Conti don’t have to walk far to experience the elegant yet relaxed atmosphere and outstanding New Orleans cuisine. The Bombay Club and Martini Bistro is tucked away down the carriageway at the back of the Prince.
Chef Richard loves to experiment with flavors, and has brought to our quasi-British menu a Cajun twist. Instead of traditional bangers and mash, you’ll find bangers and grits with black pudding and onion pan gravy. Scotch Eggs are served with boudin and collard greens.
And don’t forget —Live music nightly showcases a changing cadre of small ensembles, jazz and cabaret performers.

In the early forms of the Martini both full-bodied and even aged gins were used, further adding to the ambiguity. The history of the Martini is muddied by the various names used to refer to the mixture of gin and vermouth; over time it has been known as a Martinez, Turf Club Cocktail, and the Martini, just to name a few. In 1884, the Turf Club Cocktail and the Martinez started appearing in cocktail books, providing further insight into the history of the Martini. Although cocktail lovers may never know the exact date that gin and vermouth were first poured together, it is now considered the king of all cocktails and is clearly here to stay.
