The Old Absinthe House attracts Bourbon St boozers, but it’s also one of the city’s fabled bars that served absinthe before it was outlawed in 1914. The mysterious beverage had a psychotropic allure and allegedly drove enthusiasts mad. Today, Herbsaint, a locally produced anisette, is a safe stand-in for old absinthe-based drinks.
