New Orleans is a city that loves any excuse to dress up and party, so it comes as no surprise that the Big Easy would fully embrace all things Halloween. The last week of October, carousers across the city come together to celebrate autumn, watch parades, and get wild at holiday parties. Yet, amid all the haunted houses, flash mobs, and movie screenings, there is one hidden hideaway locals visit to escape the spooky saturnalia: Copper Vine Wine Pub, brunch New Orleans.
Weekend brunch is something of a sanctified ritual in New Orleans. Take a walk through downtime and you’re sure to catch wafts of bacon, eggs, and French toast beckoning you to step inside a number of local restaurants, bistros, and eateries.
But there is only one gastropub where you will find a balance of local flavors and breakfast classics. Whether your morning brunch cravings are sweet or savory, Copper Vine’s signature menu items like the Apple Fritter French Toast, Croque Madame, and Wild American Shrimp & Grits have been described as ‘love at first bite’.
Copper Vine just might offer the best brunch New Orleans, but many guests say keep coming back for the incredible selection of wine and cocktails. With 50 wines on tap and expert recommendations from resident Sommelier Lydia Kurkoski, it’s as easy to discover a new favorite with every visit. Swing by for brunch at Copper Vine on Saturday, October 31st. We’d love to see you!

Okay, we know you don’t exactly need more sweets on Halloween, but let’s face it, us grown-ups don’t get the opportunity to trick or treat the way that kids do. When you feel like something sweet for yourself on Halloween, you’ll dive head over heels for these signature dessert & wine pairings from Copper Vine.
Choosing just one item from the Copper Vine dessert menu is difficult when the whole roster is so delicious. But, if I had to pick a favorite, the Bananas Foster Rum Cake is one dessert I come back to time and time again. It’s made with creole cream cheese ice cream and brûléed banana, then smothered with hot salted rum caramel and pecans. Pair it with the El Maestro Sierra, Pedro Ximenez and you’re on your way to celebrating your best Halloween yet.
