Southern Food & Beverage Museum
Stop 4 of 8 on the Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard: A Great American Main Street tour
DEDICATED TO THE DISCOVERY, UNDERSTANDING AND CELEBRATION OF THE FOOD, DRINK, AND CULTURE OF THE WORLD THROUGH THE EYES OF THE SOUTH.
The Southern Food & Beverage Museum (SoFAB) is a non-profit that celebrates and educates visitors on the Southern culture of food and beverage. After years at the New Orleans Riverwalk development, SoFAB relocated to Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard in 2014 after purchasing and renovating one of the vacant historic buildings (circa 1911) of the former municipal Dryades Market. Their new location is a 30,000 sq. ft. space that includes a demonstration kitchen for educational programs, a bookshop, permanent and rotating exhibits (including the Museum of the American Cocktail), special events, and a Southern-themed bar/restaurant.
