16. Apple Barrel Bar
Address: 609 Frenchmen St.
This tiny Frenchmen Street institution isn't quite the same since esteemed local music icons/regulars like Uncle Lionel and Coco Robicheaux passed on (Robicheaux actually died at the bar). Still, it's one of the best of all the bars on the Frenchmen strip. Always filled with local characters, there's usually some good blues being played, the Bloody Marys are near perfect, and the Hi-Life is always ice cold.
