Where is the best place to get a good Bloody Mary in New Orleans? Do u get a lot of toppings?
I trust the Carousel Bar at the Monteleone Hotel to make absolutely any cocktail a work of art--especially one so iconically "New Orleans" as the Bloody Mary. You won't forget your visit to this historic bar, guaranteed.
I agree with Denise D below, but think she forgot one of the best and and certainly one of the most extras added to help cure the hangover - Le Bon Temps Roule on Magazine, dive bar, great music in the afternoons and evenings and one heck of a blood mary!
I've pretty much scoured all of Nola's bars for the best bloody mary and here are my favorites: Backspace Bar & Kitchen (get a Kobe burger with it!), Johnny White's Bar ($5), Boondock Saint. If in the Lower Garden District, Igor's is a divey 24 hour bar- where the ONLY thing to get is the $5 bloody mary, its an excellent hangover helper early in the morning! Truth is, you are in a hospitality driven city and standards are high, the above are dive bars, but the bloody marys everywhere are excellent!
