Cafe Sbisa

RESERVE A TABLE

POWERED BY

open table

The French Quarter gets packed on the weekend, and especially when you’re looking for a good date spot, most of your options are crowded dining rooms or small back patios filled with one too many tables. Rather than deal with all of that, have dinner on the upstairs terrace at Cafe Sbisa instead. This vintage French-Creole restaurant is one of the few places in the area where you can have a few cocktails and some barbecue shrimp and crab cakes outside, while the crowd stays comfortably out of earshot. After dinner, grab a drink at the bar inside, which dates back to 1899 and is the last refuge before you reenter the madness.

The Carousel Bar & Lounge

The Carousel Bar at Hotel Monteleone is indeed a bar on a moving carousel, and while it can feel a bit gimmicky, you should still grab a drink here.
