Established: 1772

Go back in time and head over to New Orleans. Stop by this bar and get a feel of the area’s true history. This bar is certainly a true survivor. It was ravaged by a disastrous fire back in 1794, but instead of folding like most of ruins during the French Quarter, it decided to open its doors once more. The tavern remains true to its nature. You can get a glimpse of its old-world charm the moment you walk in. There’s an old piano bar set in the corner and most of the areas are still lit by candle. But if you’re craving for that modern touch, you can enjoy the Jukebox that was recently added.
