New Orleans is a unique city in the United States for many reasons, including its very laid-back 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.

Head to this French Quarter establishment to start your day with a frozen Irish coffee or Bloody Mary–the two drinks they are most famous for. From there, you can explore the French Quarter via walking tour or on your own.

Paul Broussard

Located at the end of the bustling Bourbon Street, Lafitte’s “purple drink,” more formally called the Voodoo Daiquiri, is a favorite for most exploring the French Quarter. Grab a drink as you make your way down this infamous corridor.

This Lower Decatur restaurant and bar is known for its cocktail program. Even better, you can get one of their craft cocktails poured into a pineapple or coconut to take it with you. Afterward, head across the street to the French Market or to Jackson Square nearby.

Randy Schmidt

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.

Also located in the Warehouse District, Lucy’s is a popular spot to relax with friends or stop by before a day out–especially during Saints season. With a full bar and frozen drinks, there is plenty to choose from for your to-go cocktail.

Located in the Lower Garden District on St. Charles Avenue, this pub is great for getting a beer along the streetcar route.

Justen Williams

Rum House is a Caribbean taqueria with topnotch island drinks. It’s a great stop along Magazine Street in the Garden District while you shop and traverse the popular street. You can also grab a go-cup to stay hydrated before you head on a neighborhood tour.

At this Uptown neighborhood dive bar, you'll find a great Bloody Mary. Open 24 hours a day and with an extended happy hour, Le Bon Temps is an easy spot to duck into while wandering upper Magazine Street.

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.

Justen Williams

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.

Rebecca Todd

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.

Augusta Sagnelli, Barracuda

Just as much as we love Barracuda for their street tacos, we too have a strong love of their house margaritas. Go classic, spicy (a real treat), or marg of the moment. Best part is, they sell them by the cup and jug so you can take the party anywhere.
