The largest Black-owned nightlife chain in the United States, CRU Lounge, just opened in the French Quarter.
The lounge offers a full range of CBD products from hookah and gummies to pre-rolled hemp joints.
CRU specializes in craft cocktails including the CRU Rita, which includes Avion Tequila, agave and lime juice with a salt rim). Or, try the CRU Lemonade (spiked house lemonade infused with peach, strawberry or mango puree).
The lounge also serves small plates like traditional wings, po boys, jambalaya, crab mac and cheese and more.
This is the first of three CRU Lounge locations planned for Louisiana.
