New Orleans Bars & Nightlife
Bars & Nightlife neighborhood
3641 Magazine St., Uptown
Though the lengthy menu of snacks (deviled eggs, grilled baby octopus) and small plates (burrata crostini, gouda beignets) suggest otherwise, this sleek, midcentury-modern hangout is first and foremost a bar—one where the focus is on the finest cocktails and spirits. The attention to food can be chalked up to the fact that the bar’s owner is John Harris, the guy responsible for neighborhood favorite Lilette, conveniently located next door.
Cane & Table
1113 Decatur St., French Quarter
Two words: rum punch. That’s the specialty at this Caribbean-inspired, mixology-minded restaurant. The menu—a solid selection of rustic colonial cuisine—is packed with small plates like puffed pork skins and fried pickles. Need more proof that this place take its booze seriously? The all you can drink brunch—mimosa, punch, bloody marys—is kind of legendary.
713 Saint Louis St., French Quarter
Situated in the heart of the French Quarter, this annex of Antoine’s Restaurant provides live music and a stellar cocktail list—plus a pretty great scene and the oldest menu in town.
