While every neighborhood is filled with its own dives, watering holes, lounges, sports bars, and cocktail spots (the list seems endless -- but the actual number is just above 1,400 at the time of this writing!), all of those drinking establishments are united by the very unique flavor of the individual ‘hood.
That made us wonder: based on their distinctive personalities, what would NOLA 'hoods be like if they were, in fact, all guests at the same drinking establishment? Commence the thought experiment!
Bywater got here yesterday and acts as though he owns the place. Does nothing but stare at his phone and sip fernet. Unless you ask his opinion about anything, which is seriously not advisable, because you will not extract yourself from that situation for hours. Drink of choice: this rare amaro you haven’t heard of.
The French Quarter meanwhile is a gentile older fellow, well dressed and affable. He owns the bar, actually. Drink of choice: Ramos fizz.
The CBD worked hard to get where she is, and she ain’t giving up an inch. She watches Grey’s Anatomy obsessively. She’s neither young and hip nor old and tired, but the years have been good to her. She is also the French Quarter’s daughter, but doesn’t make a big deal out of it, and is super into the local restaurant scene. Drink of choice: Grey Goose on the rocks with a splash of St. Germain.
