we owe a lot of our trip to our buddy, mark, since he took us around to all the great bars in nola and made some amazing recommendations for food and drinks.
we went to visit his bar, bar tonique, while he was working because he was raving about the bloody mary! great thing about this place is their $5 drink of the day! the bacon bloody mary is a saturday special. apparently this sells out so get there earlier.
solid bloody mary. one of the best bloody marys we have ever had. no dispute. cocktails here are great. mark made me a refreshing, spicy drink (my go-to).
mark doin’ his magic.
overall: if you are looking for a great cocktail lounge/bar a little outside of the french quarter, come to bar tonique. specialty: hand-crafted cocktails… expansive menu. they will take care of you. oh, and mark was voted nola’s hottest up and coming bartenders. no big deal.
