Devoted to the art, craft and history of Southern Louisiana drinking.
It all began when Corporate Mall was first built in the 1870's. The Hayride quickly became a favorite for it's devotion to whiskey, punches, and the burgeoning cocktail culture of the age where shoppers who wandered the wondrous halls of consumer bliss. I rode out Prohibition as a Pharmacy whose medicines were particularly popular amongst the political class. Huey Long and the other members of his family and political allies would spend hours discussing politics, sports and other matters while being cared for by the dapper pharmacists with their expertly prepared cures. One must assume this is where "It all began".
Today Hayride Scandal is unabashedly devoted to the art, craft and history of Southern Louisiana drinking. We aim to explore the classic beverages of Louisiana, introduce cocktails from around the world we feel are rooted in our traditions, and reinvent and introduce many still forgotten and neglected aspects of our spirited past.
