    The Opal! Absinthe and hand crushed ice. Worth the fancy cocktail price - then spring for a draft in a mason jar!

  • Gilt City

    A little-known fact: Maison Premiere claims to have the world’s most accurate working replica of the absinthe fountain that once flowed in New Orleans. (Oh, and go for the Beausoleil bivalves.)

    A cocktail bar that just happens to have an amazing raw bar. Order a variety of oysters and try not to puke.

    This absinthe bar is a replica of Olde Abinthe House in New Orleans. Loved the absinthe blanche - go from 4 - 7pm for dollar oysters.

    If you're here for oyster happy hour...give yourself a pat on the back. You're a smart lad...

    You must try the Roffignac at Sea cocktail. It's probably my favorite ever; Cognac, caramel, Benedictine and maldon salt.

    My favorite "go to" drink now is the absinthe-based Yellow Parrot with a Pretty Things draft beer at the same time. My favorite neighborhood spot and they have the best backyard garden!

    This bar is intoxicating and decadent! The Frenchmen Roulette is as close to a perfect cocktail as I've ever tasted. The oyster list is long but the shrimp cocktail is also worth a try.

  • Arti J.

    Gigamoto and royal miyagi are my favorite oysters, if they happen to be on the menu. If you're not into absinthe, the St. Helena cocktail is amazing.

    Try the Nantucket sound, beau soleil and Nootka sound. Amazing. And great martini too.

    Don't be a doofus and try the absinthe menu! Go for the Imperial Opal! It is like a giant fancy absinthe slushie and you've never seen anything like it. Fantastic. Love Tenneyson absinthe!

    The best oyster menu in the USA. No joke, the most extensive oyster list in the US. And they're all $1 during happy hour. That fucking rules.
