We're back with another edition of Where Bartenders Drink, getting bar advice from the folks who know the city best. This month, in advance of Tales of the Cocktail, we're looking for the best places to drink in New Orleans, including craft cocktail lounges and the best dive bars, spots with great history (and great people watching.)
We asked nine local bartenders where they drink in and around the city; here are their picks, from the French Quarter to Metairie. Here's what they had to say.
