13. Old Absinthe House
Address: 240 Bourbon St.
This is the only bar in the disease-ridden, depressing part of Bourbon Street (seriously y'all, Bourbon Street is NOLA's Times Square) I'm willing to visit without hesitation. I mean, if Mark Twain, P.T. Barnum, and Oscar Wilde can drink here, then it's good enough for me. And I wouldn't consider ordering a Ramos gin fizz or a brandy milk punch anywhere else.
