New Orleans is the home of fabled bars where the glasses come rinsed with history and garnished with legend. Some are celebrated for centuries like Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop on Bourbon Street – housed in a building older than the United States. Others are lauded for their locale – on Royal Street, the Hotel Monteleone’s revolving Carousel Bar delightfully spins customers in circles. So many have rich histories. A few win fame for the excellence of their bartenders like Arnaud’s French 75. Others, like Pat O’Brien's or Esplanade Avenue’s Port of Call pour trademark drinks. Monsoons or Hurricanes, anyone?
