A Soak To End All Soaks
The cure for the inevitable Bourbon Street hangover may be a hurricane at Pat O'Briens, but if you decide to forego the hair of the dog in favor of something a bit more civilized, consider a soak—technically the 5-Sense Hydrotherapy—at the Guerlain Spa at the Roosevelt Hotel. The half-hour long service takes place in a candlelit enclave with a massive bathtub with a series of jets that pummel your muscles into heavenly relaxation. A well-placed bucket with icy towels and cold bottles of water ensures you'll sweat out your toxins without overheating. And should you decide the hair of the dog really is the best remedy, the Sazerac Bar is just upstairs.
