Bachelorette Party Help - Need Cocktail Bar Rec!

My bachelorette party is this weekend in New Orleans, and I'm super excited to visit all of the awesome cocktail bars in town! Unfortunately, we have limited time and funds, so I'm having to pick just handful of cocktail bars to visit. Here's what on our list so far:

Carousel Bar
Arnaud's French 75
Napoleon House

I want to add one more cocktail bar to this list, but I can't decide! I've looked into Sazerac Bar, Bar Uncommon, Tujague, and Bar Tonique, but we won't have time to visit all of them. I'm a big cocktail afficionado, so I want to make this last bar count!

Can anybody recommend a killer cocktail bar in or near the quarter that would fit in with the bars we're already going to? Would be great if it had a fun vibe and was bachelorette party appropriate as well.

Thanks so much!

      1. I would definitely take Bar Uncommon off the list since Chris isn't mixing there any longer. Bar Tonique would be my choice in or around the Quarter, but if there's any way you guys could make it out to Cure - it would be so worth it.

        1. I tried to answer yesterday but the site went down just as I posted. So I'll try to remember what I wrote yesterday.
          Your choices are good for the purpose but I would swap Antoine's Herme's Bar for French 75. While French 75 might be a better bar, Hermes would be a more comfortable place to party and the drinks are good.

          Bar Uncommon is now common for the reason Alicia stated. Also Tujague's has history and a few good drinks but I wouldn't put it down as a bachelorette party place. So Bar Tonique is a good choice and Sazerac Bar is usually jumping on weekends, often the base for some high dollar wedding parties

              Definitely Sylvain. Also, SouBou just opened up in the W and looks like it would be a good spot for ya'll.
