Best weeknight bars for music and really good, craft drinks (Magazine Street or near garden district)

BorntoEat | Apr 2, 201503:04 PM

Hi all,

So the parents are coming with to New Orleans and said they would watch the child a couple nights so the wife and I can go out for drinks and music at an actual bar. With no kids. Wow.

We like really quality drinks (can't do the cheap alcohol or corn syrup anymore) and good music (jazz, zydeco, anything lively) and don't need anyplace scene-y (married, not looking, no longer in my 30s).

Staying in the Garden District - could walk to magazine street or cab anyplace else close-ish. No smoking would be a big plus if possible.

Thanks for any recs!
