Drinkery - Bourbon Street - New Orleans

After us, it’s all a blur.

The first place everybody goes on Bourbon Street is the Drinkery. Next door to world-famous Galatoire’s, this is where you come to drink the good stuff first because, well, you’re not going to remember it later.

Top-shelf hooch, an incredible selection of craft beers, live music you won’t be able to get out of your head for the rest of your life (that may sound annoying, but it’s not)…this is what sets Bourbon Street Drinkery apart. Will you see a ghost here? Sure! We serve ghosts. With valid ID, of course. But the only spirits at The Drinkery you’ll definitely run into are 100 proof.

Drink the good
stuff first.



Welcome to the future. Our collective human consciousness, or Ghost in the Machine, has gained a tolerance for hops beyond what mankind has ever known before.

This Double India Pale Ale is the necessary outcome.
