A beautiful, intimate bar space in one of the Quarter’s most venerable restaurants, French 75 won a 2017 James Beard award for Outstanding Bar Program. It feels like drinking in New Orleans should: classic and classy. Acclaimed bartender Chris Hannah and others are equally adept at vintage mixed (including a perfect Ramos Gin Fizz and the namesake French 75 champagne cocktail) and original concoctions. Order a side of Arnaud’s dreamy soufflé potatoes to munch on. Perfection.
