Tiki Tolteca

Top choice bar in French Quarter

Though this great tiki bar shares the block with another tiki-themed powerhouse, Latitude 29, they're as different as Tahiti and Hawaii. Here you'll find an intimate bar, where it's easy to chat and make friends, and some impressive drinks – which pack a punch. There's a daily happy hour (from opening until 7pm). The entrance is around the corner on Bienville.

Most people walk into Felipe's, the Mexican restaurant downstairs, first. Don't be confused, just turn around and look for the relatively small sign directing you upstairs via the stairwell.
