Things to Do in New Orleans in February

Drink at the best bars in the French Quarter

Drink at the best bars in the French Quarter
New Orleans has quite the boozy reputation, to say the least. From dive ins and up-scale cocktail bars to pubs and iconic hotel bars, the city takes their drinking establishments seriously. Final calls and bars closing at 2 a.m? Not in New Orleans! Some bars are even open for 24 hours! Bottoms up 'til the sun's up!

Climb at New Orleans Boulder Lounge
