This Mardi Gras–themed bar specializes in the kind of potent drinks you might slug while letting loose in the French Quarter. There's the Party Gras, an upchuck-inducing mix of Southern Comfort, 151, blue curaçao and sweet-and-sour mix, and the Hand Grenade, with gin, 151, melon liqueur, rum and vodka—plus scorpion bowls for sharing. A mural depicting Bourbon Street revelry and an indoor patio with porch swings constitute the decor, while a snacks from the Cajun menu (beignets, jambalaya) should keep the bons temps in check.
