It’s not unusual for us to constantly work to upgrade our cocktail game, trying to find over the top cocktail creations and fun places to enjoy them. While the weather is heating up, so are the bartenders who are working to make fabulous drinks for us to sip all summer long.
Broussard’s Restaurant and Courtyard’s ( 819 Conti St. ) Empire Bar and courtyard has happy hour Thursday through Saturday from 3-6 p.m. Here you can get $5 classic cocktails including greats like the Bee’s Knees, Honi Honi and the Pimm’s Cup. There is also a good selection of beers for $3 and wines for $4. Enjoy the courtyard seating while sipping the summer away.
Jazzy Pete’s ( 8201 Oak St. ) happy hour here is from Monday to Saturday 4-6 p.m. The restaurant offers $5 draft beer, $5 well drinks, $5 wine by the glass and a small selection of oyster and appetizer deals. It’s Uptown funk in liquid form during this happy hour.
Erin Rose ( 811 Conti St. ) is a casual bar and French Quarter favorite where you’ll find all types of people – he bartenders have great personalities that really stand out – and all types of drinks. Here the happy hour starts everyday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. You’ll get $3 mimosas, $3 screwdrivers, $4 bloody Mary’s, $3.50 frozen Irish coffee, and $4 hot Irish coffee. After all, how can you drink all day if you don’t start in the morning?
