Description

Part travelogue, part guidebook, and part exposi1/2, this hip and informative guide will introduce every watering hole of note in the French Quarter. From the seersucker-friendly Carousel Bar at the Hotel Monteleone to the sordid hangouts along the back streets of the Quarter to the iconic and down-to-earth Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop, the authors visit them all, providing a bar-side review of the music, drinks, patrons, and di1/2cor.

Each entry in this eclectic collection provides a profile that includes such extremely relevant topics as what ink you'll see, what you'll hear, who your drinking buddies are likely to be, what you should-or shouldn't-wear, what your tab will look like, what the best feature is, and, of course, what you should sip The authors have spent a great deal of time on research, and their insights will make a visit to the French Quarter one to be remembered.
