Venue Info

While tourists are welcome at Bar Tonique, it is in the French Quarter after all, this craft cocktail bar doesn’t cater to out-of-towners and instead focuses on its encyclopedic cocktail menu. Of the 40 plus cocktails listed by classification and purpose (think “True Cocktails”, “Sours,” and “Punches”), the “True” East India Cocktail is high on our list of must-drink with its cognac, curaçao, Maraschino cherries, house-made pineapple syrup, angostura bitters, and lemon peel garnish. All visitors feel at home in this comfortable, den-like space whether you’re seated at the wrap-around bar or snuggled up by the fireplaces during the cold season, and for those of you that consider yourself whiskey aficionados ... Tuesday’s special is whiskey flights.
