A vibrant city, there is something for everyone in the Big Easy!

New Orleans Cocktails

For an old school love potion, Arnaud’s French 75 Bar mixes that namesake drink with Cognac instead of gin. For a cocktail that’s more like dessert, order a grasshopper at Tujague’s, the bar where it was invented.

Old Institutions

Although the Pimm’s Cup is veddy British, Napoleon House popularized it locally. Ticky tacky tiki is the rage at Tiki Tolteca in the Quarter. Try the classic Mai Tai, although the shareable zombie punch is a potent tropical vacation. Proto-tiki concoctions inform the polished menu at Cane+Table, rum, spice and fruit driven recipes that pre-date LA’s surf-driven Tiki wave.
