A love letter to the city that gave us the Sazerac, Dan Priseman’s NOLA is a pocket of Southern hospitality in Shoreditch. Located above Rivington Street’s Bedroom Bar, it’s not an obvious find. With slow spinning fans, Parisian café tables and tropical foliage, there is an easy translation of the French Quarter, whose sentiment is expressed in the drinks, where New Orleans classics rule.

What to drink
The only bar outside New Orleans to be honored with the Seal of the Sazerac by the New Orleans Culinary and Cultural Preservation Society, NOLA has a legit rendition. The heady Nuclear Hurricane is limited to two per person.

ProTip
It’s a cigar bar as well. Choose your smoke and take it onto the rickety patio. Squint and you’re back in the bayou.
