The New Orleans Cocktail Tour

Cocktail history IS New Orleans history!

Sometimes neat…sometimes on the rocks…but always very, very interesting!

This French Quarter walking tour explores the parallels between our resilient and vibrant city with the tasty, storied cocktails that (refreshingly!) reflect her.

Get an insider’s look at some of the best French Quarter bars, each with their own story to tell. Imbibe in notable New Orleans cocktails while your guide reveals the historical events that are reflected in each, thoughtfully-chosen ingredient.

Plus, in our tiny group, ask questions! Looking for award-winning bartenders? Love a good dive bar? You’ll get recommendations specifically based on your taste and preferred vibe, many of which only a local would know.

What This Is:

  • An outdoor walking tour that visits multiple cocktail venues in the French Quarter
  • A history and culture lesson about cocktails that are significant to New Orleans
  • Recounting the history of the first American cocktail, invented right in the French Quarter
  • Insight into notable people, events, architecture and more
  • Interactive! It’s more like a friend is showing you their favorite spots
  • The opportunity for personalized recommendations for the rest of your trip

What This Is Not:

  • A drunken pub crawl
  • A cattle-call of tourists – your tour will only have 9 people or less!
  • Bourbon Street
  • For guests under 21
  • An all-inclusive ticket: Drinks are not included and are optional

The Most Interesting Happy Hour You’ll Ever Have!

Drinks are not included with the tour price, and no guest is obligated to buy drinks at any stop. We also encourage sharing! Please note that no food is available during the tour. This walking tour covers about one mile and will be held rain or shine, so wear comfortable shoes for walking on uneven sidewalks and bring proper gear for the weather. At least two people are needed to run this tour (may be booked separately).

Where Do We Meet?

We’ll meet at: the Bourbon O bar inside the Bourbon Orleans Hotel at 730 Bourbon Street, New Orleans, LA 70116.
