    Some of the best cocktails I've ever had. I usually just order whisky on the rocks or an Old Fashioned, but here I wanted to venture out on the menu.

    One of the best cocktail bars in New Orleans, and definitely the best one in the Uptown area.

    It's a pain to get out here without a car, but trust me: it's worth the cabfare there and back. Best cocktail bar in town: inventive recipes, new flavors, all perfectly crafted.

    It's a civilized uptown bar serving knockout cocktails like The Mexican Bus Ride, made with tequila, mezcal, aromatized wine, and tinctures.
