    1. The best that I have ever found was at the Carousel Bar at the Hotel Monteleone. Now, I do not know if the Carousel Bar is still there, or if they are as good, but back when, they were great and unique.

        Commander's, Hermes (Antoine's) streetside bar.

            Thanks. It's just been too long, and much has happened, since I last enjoyed a Bloody Mary there.

              Bill, I enjoyed one there in March. It was lovely. I plan on stopping in there again next month!

        1. Molly's makes a good one. Their (not so) secret ingredient: a shot of Guinness.

          Molly's is a good bar in general. On Decatur in the French Quarter.

            Have to agree with Molly's. Best Bloody Mary I've found in the Quarter!

            1. I just got back from Jazz Fest and have to tell you, I still love Cafe Lafitte in Exile's bloodys. Get a double with a whole garden of yummy snacks to take with for brunch at Eat (one block away) where you must order the Shrimp and Grits bowl.

                So not only is EAT byob, you can actually bring cocktails from other bars there with you?? I'm going to be in town next week and was already planning on brunch at EAT, so this intrigues me :-)
