Finally, it’s festival season and time to pop into some of our favorite places for cocktails in between all of the activity in the city. We checked out some great happy hours and think you should too! Grab a friend and hit the cocktail trail, we promise you, you won’t be disappointed.
Bywater Bistro (2900 Chartres St.) has a one hour happy hour. You’ll have to show up on time and order fast. This relatively new spot offers $5 specials that include Old Fashioneds, martinis, daiquiris and a daily wine selection. Happy hour runs Wednesday through Sunday from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. This is a fun neighborhood place where you will feel at home, make new friends and enjoy of the great cocktail classics. And the regular cocktail menu is pretty great, too. The Kentucky Mule and the Bab Sour caught our attention and we cannot wait to go back.
Cane and Table (1113 Decatur St.) is a perfect stop when strolling the French Quarter. Happy hour specials are great and they give us a chance to enjoy some classics at half the price. You can try beer and shot combinations, wine specials and a selection of classics. Happy hour runs Monday through Friday from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. If its champagne you love, the ‘happy hour bubbles’ is a deal, serving Cava for $6. This is a good time of year to stop in and enjoy all that with team is offering.
The Bombay Club (830 Conti St.) is one of our favorite happy hour stops. Why? It runs longer than most. Here you can enjoy great deals from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. everyday. Specials include wine, beer and a list of six classic cocktail of the day for $6. Many of us may go there for their popular martini, but this bartending team is stepping into spring with a lot more. Here you can sit back, enjoy the atmosphere and sip until dusk. This is a good place to gather with friends and get great cocktail deals.
These are of course just some of the wonderful happy hour specials in New Orleans. If you have a happy hour you want us to check out, let us know so we can share it with cocktail lovers everywhere.
