Voodoo Queen Daiquiri Dive
Voodoo Queen Daiquiri Dive in the East End is what happens when you smash up an arcade, a dive bar, a po’boy spot, and a frozen drinks tiki hut into a single, unhinged entity. You could just as easily hang out playing pool and drinking beers all night, but you could also order a giant flaming tiki boat drink for yourself and three of your best friends. Or beat someone in air hockey while you crush three different frozen drinks all swirled together. Chow down on fried shrimp po’boys, jalapeño hush puppies, and tater tots smothered in roast beef and spicy sauce while you knock back electric-lime-colored drinks and gaze longingly into the constantly twirling arms of the eight frozen drink machines. Only go here if you’re ready to party.
