    Craft Cocktails with exquisite selection of liquor from whiskey, gin and rum. Tonic' s made in house with bitters and sodas. No pretentious cocktails here just amazing handcrafted selection.

    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. :/

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

    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.

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

    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
