New Orleans is a unique city in the United States for many reasons, one of which is its lack of an open container law. Here you can drink alcohol on the street as long as it is not in a glass container. The “go-cup” has become commonplace at just about every New Orleans restaurant, but some in particular specialize in their to-go drinks. Here is our roundup of our top spots to grab a drink on the go.
Willa Jean has won awards for their pastries, which you can order to go as well. Wash down your breakfast or afternoon treat with some frosé, or frozen rosé. Explore the Warehouse District with a drink in hand. The Julia Street art galleries are nearby, as well as Saints games, Wednesday at the Square and many concerts.
The fresh fruit daiquiris at Bourée are one of a kind. Favorite flavors include frozen gin and tonic or Ponchatoula strawberry, but the options are always changing. Located on Carrollton Avenue, head to Oak Street for shopping and strolling.
Right on the St. Charles Avenue streetcar line, you will find frozen pomegranate mojitos, frozen French 75s and more. Grab a drink for your adventure admiring the grand estates along the avenue.
This super laid-back neighborhood bar makes a number of delicious specialty cocktails, but regulars especially love the spicy gingerita. Grab one and head to the banks of Bayou St. John for a picnic or to catch a sunset.
