    Great cocktail bar. Visited many times on my trip, and didn't have one bartender who wasn't excellent. They're occasionally understaffed, and I could do without the smoke, but otherwise great place.

    If you're ready to escape Bourbon and actually find a chill place for an amazing cocktail, this is it. Try the eggnog drink — amazing.

    Clever and well-crafted cocktails using house made syrups and bitters, all while being completely unpretentious and affordable. Open noon-2am and daily $5 drink specials.

    So everyone says to come here and get the Ramos Gin Fizz. And you should because it's awesome. But then you have to pay the price and incur barkeep wrath. Kinda makes your drink unfun. :/

    Fun and interesting cocktails: sazerac always solid, corpse reviver and aviation are great gin cocktails. Quintessential New Orleans ambiance without the crowd.

    Awesome drinks if you can get one! Bartender irritated when I ordered the 'labor-intensive' Ramos gin fizz....um, sorry. Drinks are good enough I'll go back, but only if they're not busy.

    Bloody Mary on Saturday is one of the most unique I've ever had. They juice the ingredients all together Centrifuge juicer and add a strip of bacon.

    Very well made cocktails, excellent Scotch selection, and a cordial crowd. Ask the bartender for recommendations: they have ingredients made in house.

    Drinks are pedestrian here. Smoker hipsters hang out near the front door and all the cigarette smoke enters the bar. Bartender didn't want to close the door

    Great drinks at the edge of the French Quarter. Try the Bloody Mary or one of the other daily specials.

    Bartender is the strong & silent type. Makes amazing cocktails and will engage if you seem interested. Ask him what he's drinking. Get that.

    Drink list is astonishing. Homemade tonic tasty. Real fireplace oh so welcome. Too bad the surly barkeep nearly ruins it all.

    Drinks were great, bartender was iffy. Slow night, but she was inattentive and distracted by her friends that were at the bar.

    it is a cute bar with great drinks but I never go in anymore cause there is always a big pile of garbage out front on the sidewalk - get some trashcans already - gross
