From a friend who is in NOLA often.

Cane&Table - great rum bar in the quarter, get the pineapple cocktail togo, perfect for a walk and is delicious!

Sazerac Bar – The OG bar in the Roosevelt hotel, reminds me of The Green Mill without live music, a great place to catch a civilized cocktail before or at the end of the night.. they are open late! 4AM super elegant hotel!!

Carousel Bar – The only bar that makes you spin.. for real, the bar spins and it's amazing. Great Hennessy negronis 😉

Cure – The most “progressive” cocktail program in town, funky atmosphere and cool list of “baller” cocktails i.e 21yr rum in cocktails vs 5yr. They also own Cane & Table.

Bouligny Tavern – great outdoor seating and really the best wine bar in town with a great cocktail program to boot.

Dos Heffe’s – One of the only places left you can get a bourbon listen to live music and buy a cigar and smoke it.. it’s awesome!

Delachaise – funky wine bar with a chill vibe, not as polished as Bouligny but they have great selections.

Erin Rose - you must go early 10AM-12PM for a frozen Irish coffee to start the day.. It's become tradition for Chicago industry to post a pic there with the black Togo cups.

French75 Bar - a legend, upscale classy Bar, perfect for a cocktail before or after dinner

Any mention of New Orleans requires these two recommendations by me:

• Coop's Place- good food, I believe that they still serve inexpensive rocks glasses of classic green Chartreuse liqueur

• Royal Street Inn - cheap place to stay in the Quarter
