    Must do's in the French Quarter,

    from a "drinking bourbon" perspective, of course!
    I've heard a lot about Dickie Brennan's, so that's on the list.
    Was at the Sazarac Bar in Hotel Roosevelt last year, so thinking
    I need to go there again.
    Any other bars that are a must?
    Special consideration given to cigar-friendly!

    A bloody Mary or your favorite cocktail at Tujaques is a must!!!

    For a meal Commander's Palace. Otherwise New Orleans is a reasonable tobacco tolerant town.
    We're Bourbon Geeks, it's who we are, it's what we do.

    Nah. We're good food-wise and cigar-wise for that matter. Looking
    for places to try different bourbons and whiskeys in and around walking
    distance of the Quarter. You know. The "bar" experience.

    IMO you can't beat the quality and price at Cafe Maspero's. Dollar daquari's all day and a perfect spot for lunch! It's on the corner directly across from the JAX Brewery.

    I am also a big fan of the Court of Two Sisters (especially for a weekend or holiday brunch).

    If you want the "native bar experience", I'd suggest you go down to Frenchman St and barhop.

    The Dungeon is pretty cool.

    Beignets at Cafe Du . . . oh, bourbon related. Pass :-) (although I would bet that a little something in a flask would take their coffee up another notch!)

    You have to have a few classics at the Old Absinthe House on Bourbon street!

    May Baileys, Laffites, carousel bar and for a great dive bar experience check out Chucks in the warehouse dist. A short stroll across canal st.

    Avenue pub has an amazing tap list and an awesome whiskey list in the upstairs bar. A short cab ride from the quarter but not too far. It's owned by a former Kentuckian.
