Five wine bars to add to your bachelorette staycation
From where to stay and what to do, planning a bachelorette party in another city can be tricky. Fortunately, New Orleans has a multitude of bars, restaurants and things to do that you can’t go wrong with for a wonderful weekend in the Crescent City.
Below, we’ve listed a few wine bars that will add a bit of elegance, and maybe pinot, to your bachelorette celebration.
