4. Arnaud's French 75

Address: 813 Bienville Ave.

If Don Draper were alive and living in NOLA, he would be a regular at French 75. Steeped in history, the bar was a watering hole of "gentlemen only" in its early days. The place just screams Mad Men, from the staff decked out in white tuxedos accompanied by black bow ties, to the dark wood that's been marinating in smoke for years. Further, it's home to Chris Hannah, the man many believe to be the best barkeep in New Orleans. And while Hannah's version of the drink that is the bar's namesake is excellent, you should go full Draper and order an Old Fashioned if you drop by. You can thank me later.
