New Orleans Private Cocktail Walking Tour Details

Join a local tour guide who will introduce you to the best and most historic bars of New Orleans on this customizable cocktailing adventure!

 

For any history buff in your group, we’ll travel back to the 1700s and visit a bar which used to entertain some of the most eccentric characters in New Orleans history. Here, we can taste an infamous drink of the city and learn how it has influenced New Orleans drinking culture today.

 

For those who like their drinks sweet and less spirit-forward, we can include a range of delicious dessert-like cocktails so good you’ll forget there’s alcohol in it!

 

And for those wanting to truly experience the essence of New Orleans cocktail culture, we’ll certainly want to include a tour stop at the cocktail bars known for making the city’s best Sazerac, the “official cocktail of New Orleans”. One of the first cocktails ever invented, it’s definitely tasty enough to stand the test of time. We can also touch upon the topic of how medicine influenced the Sazerac and other cocktails alike.

 

Another classic New Orleans invention we may want to include on your quintessential cocktail tour is the much-beloved Ramos Gin Fizz. We can learn why this drink is original and exclusive to New Orleans and witness an expert bartender making it. After our first sip, you’ll truly understand why New Orleans has been called, “the cradle of civilized drinking.”

 

Whether it’s a full flight of included cocktails or a pay-as-you-wish experience where you sample drinks that speak to your senses, our team is ready to show off the best of New Orleans and its incredible cocktail scene!

Highlights

1850 House Museum & Store

This museum, located in a rowhouse in the Lower Pontalba Building, serves as a model for what life would have been like for the more well-to-do citizens of mid-19th century New Orleans. Here, you can learn their personal stories and get up close and personal with Louisiana history.

Jackson Square

This historic site, known for its iconic St. Louis Cathedral, is noted for being one of the most significant places in Louisiana’s purchase by the United States in 1803.

St. Louis Cathedral

This cathedral is a widely recognized symbol of New Orleans and serves as the seat of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans. A the oldest cathedral in continuous use in the United States, the cathedral has quite the storied past, from bombings to papal visits!

Cabildo

A part of the Louisiana State Museum, this handsome building once served as the seat of Spanish colonial city hall and now houses exhibits on the history of Louisiana from its settlement through the Reconstruction Era.

The Presbytere

Adjacent to the St. Louis Cathedral, The Presbytere is a designated National Historic Landmark and is part of the Louisiana State Museum. Known for its colonial Spanish–style, the building also once housed the Louisiana Supreme Court.

Community Impact

Our tours are powered by the local community, with small, local establishments who have crafted their drinks to reflect their heritage and love for New Orleans culture and cocktails.

This tour dives into the history of New Orleans’ diverse peoples, highlighting the contributions of often-overlooked groups including immigrants and minorities.

Our small-group tours minimize negative impacts on the local community, reducing pressure on small businesses we frequent, allowing locals more room to maneuver around our tours, and reducing noise pollution without the need of microphones.

We mindfully design our tours to explore areas on foot, thus doing our part to lessen our environmental impact.
