  • Try the absinthe, sit on the patio, stare at the cathedral, and drunk text your devout Catholic mom to let her know what you're doing.
  • Drink Absinthe here!
  • Tiffany makes the best Absinthe while explaing the history of the drink.
  • protip: allows dogs!
  • Real absinthe served the traditional way, 3 French brands and one Spanish. Try them all!
  • Try the Absinthe! If you don't like it, the bar wench will add ice and Coke and it will taste like rootbeer.
  • Wonderful place to enjoy Absinthe (always seeking a chance meeting with the green fairy). Walking down Pirate's Alley itself you may feel the cool breeze of a pirate groom seeking his lost bride.
  • Setting it on fire is actually NOT the "traditional" way. Its more of a late custom that was developed for shock value.
  • Pirate's Grog!
  • Personally absinthe tastes gross to me. But I got the absinthe mixed with champagne drink and it was quiet tasty.
  • Great Absinthe while given a brief history of the drink.
  • Go for the absinthe
  • Toxic Baby!!!!! $3.00 don't ask, it's good, & u get a baby! WIN
  • Definitely try the Green Fairy! If you hate the taste of licorice then get the atomic rootbeer. (absinthe drinks). Great local bar!
  • Try the Nouvelle Orleans absinthe. Best absinthe they have.
  • Freshest mojitos - great way to settle your stomach after the fried heavy foods of NOLA
  • Monica is great
  • I know it's famous, but I didn't care for the cash-only absinthe.
  • Have to give the absinthe a go
  • Small bar, cash only, but great vibe and customer service.
