Wandering the streets of New Orleans’ French Quarter, one of the most romantic settings for a cocktail before or after dinner is at Arnaud’s French 75 Bar. It’s a sophisticated addition to the nightlife of the area and was originally a “gentlemen only” bar. In 2003 it opened at the French 75 Bar serving vintage spirits and fine cigars.
It has been named one of the top 25 bars by GQ Magazine and Esquire has it listed as a Top 5. For romantics, Arnaud’s French 75 Bar offers an atmosphere of intimate classiness with Southern flair just steps from away from the brashness of Bourbon Street.
The iconic French 75 cocktail is one I enjoy each time I stop in for a visit. Sitting at the vintage bar from the 1800’s while sipping slowly on this bubbly drink while reading the quotes on the napkin and contemplating life takes me back to another time where the days were gentle and smooth.
