Upon entering the Epicurean Hotel lobby, one of the first things that will catch your eye is the unique candles melted inside wine bottles. These hand-poured candles featured inside the Epicurean Hotel and Spa Evangeline are the work of Tipsy Candle Company, based out of Tampa, FL. What makes this story unique? The Tipsy Candles at the Epicurean Hotel are uniquely crafted from recycled wine bottles from Élevage Restaurant and donated wine bottles from our big daddy, Bern’s Steak House.
