Hilton New Orleans Riverside Hotel, LA - Drago's VIP Experience

Drago's VIP Experience

Open any list of must-eat food items for New Orleans, and you're bound to stumble upon Drago's signature Charbroiled Oysters. This intimate and interactive class is held by Tommy Cvitanovich, the executive chef and owner of Drago's Seafood Restaurant and the creator of the famous charbroiled oysters. Your attendees will have the opportunity to hear how this delicious dish came to be known as the "Best Single Bite in New Orleans", what goes into his secret sauce, and how you can use it on anything - including charbroiled lobster! Your attendees will become experts as Tommy explains how to select the perfect oyster and demonstrates how they are shucked, all while enjoying an array of our most popular appetizers throughout the class.

Hilton New Orleans Riverside Hotel, LA - Bartender Fixing Drink at Public Belt

Mixology Class

This class is held in Public Belt, our speakeasy style lounge and your ticket to experience a bit of Old World charm in a contemporary setting. It is no secret that here in New Orleans we take our cocktails very seriously as it is the birthplace of many of the most enduring drinks. In this class, your attendees will have the opportunity to put their bartender skills to the test as we take them through an era of candle-lit rooms, smooth jazz, and hand-crafted, vintage cocktails. Our experienced bartenders will teach your attendees all about our city's deep rooted history with mixology and how to make three New Orleans classics: the Sazerac, an Old Fashioned, and a Hurricane. Extend the experience and add some live music to give your attendees a chance to socialize, relax, and enjoy our unique Public Belt bar all to themselves.

Beignet Making Class

While in New Orleans, if you haven't had a beignet (pronounced ben-YAY), you aren't having the full experience of the city!

Join our Hilton culinary team as they show your attendees the ins and outs of this iconic pastry and give them the chance to make their own powdered treat for a truly unique New Orleans experience. As the beignets cook, your attendees will be treated to wine and hors d'oeuvres while enjoying the breathtaking panoramic views from the 29th floor in our most luxurious space, Lagniappe 29.
