The bar that’s largely credited with sparking New Orleans’ craft cocktail renaissance, Cure has turned its Freret Street home into a hot bed of food and drink options. The ivy-lined patio, soaring shelves full of top-flight liquor and a “see and be seen” crowd still places this bar at the top of this list for an urbane night out on the town. The drinks are consistently stellar, with the menu rotating seasonally.

What to drink
The Cure classic drink—Berlin in the '70s—blends the smokiness of mezcal with tequila, lemon, orange and cinnamon.
The cocktails rotate seasonally, but one of the bar’s fine interpretations of obscure standards is always a good bet.
