Forget Hand Grenades and Hurricanes, this tour goes beyond Bourbon Street! Join Doctor Gumbo Tours on a journey through New Orleans’ historic and fascinating history of cocktails, and sample them along the way. Belly up to the oldest stand-up bar in the city, find out where the Grasshopper was invented, get the real scoop on absinthe, learn the origins of the Sazerac and discover hidden gems where locals have been imbibing for centuries. Each stop will feature a classic cocktail prepared by multiple award-winning mixologists, and your guide will give you the history behind them! Expect to visit 4 venues including SoBou, the Bourbon O Bar and Tujague’s!

The last bar is in one of the best and oldest restaurants in the city in case you need some food to “soak things up”! For those looking to take the party further, you’ll be just a few short blocks to another lively nightlife district: Frenchmen Street in the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood!
