Occupying what was once an old pub off a back street in Collingwood, Le Bon Ton is an all-day, all-night festival of New Orleans-style good times. There’s a good selection of American craft beers on tap, a whole mess of absinthe and champagne, a raw bar and a short but excellent list of cocktails by venue manager (and former Australian Bartender of the Year) Evan Stanley. Best of all, they’re open until 6 a.m. on weekends, and serve bar food until 5 a.m.

What to drink
The Hurricane. They’ve made a version far more balanced than the syrupy mess you get on Bourbon St.
BBQ is the name of the game here. Half of the back courtyard is filled with smokers, including a massive Southern Pride imported from Tennessee.
