Food, Drink, and Jazz in New Orleans

Food, Drink, and Jazz in New Orleans

New Orleans is one of those cities where the good times roll all year round. Whether you’re joining one million other Mardi Gras-goers for the party this year, or heading to the Big Easy after the crowds die down, your trip promises no shortage of indulgence, jazzy beats, and unique New Orleans charm. See below for some of our favorite ways to experience the city’s festive spirit.

Eat

Famous for po’boys, beignets, and other tasty Creole dishes, New Orleans is a city for foodies. To get a taste of the local cuisine, book the brunch buffet at the historic Court of Two Sisters restaurant, or sign up for a cooking class to create favorite dishes like gumbo and jambalaya.

Drink

New Orleans’ French Quarter is one of the few places in the United States where it’s legal to drink alcohol in the streets (so long as it’s in plastic cup). But don’t stop there—book a historical bar crawl to visit some of the city’s oldest watering holes, learn about the Sazerac and Pimm’s Cup, and of course, knock back a few cocktails.

Jazz

It’s hard to walk around New Orleans, the birthplace of jazz, without hearing music on the streets. Pair the brassy beats with a dinner cruise, or opt for a jazz-focused walking tour to discover the history of this popular musical style.

And More

No matter when you’re in town, you can get a behind-the-scenes look at Mardi Gras traditions by visiting the year-round Mardi Gras World, which showcases the studio spaces where artists create the famously vibrant parade floats. Plus, it’s always ‘voodoo season’ in New Orleans, with plenty of spooky activities to give you a peek into the city’s haunted past.
