Scandalous Cocktail Hour Tour
Kick off your evening with a dose of New Orleans vice on a 2.5-hour walking tour of the city’s most fascinating places, from old time brothels to historic bars. Hear stories about the Big Easy’s most infamous and scandalous characters as you visit locations that saw generations of pirates, mobsters, madams and murderers. Learn the history of famous local cocktails like the Sazerac, and enjoy time to order drinks along the way while raising your glass to New Orleans' rowdy history.
What to Expect
Join us for an exploration of the city’s storied watering holes such as Pat O’Brien’s, the Carousel Bar, Jean Lafitte Blacksmith Shop and others to discover where, why, and how legendary libations from the Sazerac to the Pims Cup were first concocted.

Here you will uncover the city’s astonishing scandalous past and present. Learn about the oldest professions from Storyville to the Tango Belt, from Norma Wallace’s last brothel to Blaze Starr’s Bourbon Street Burlesque. Next you will take a look into organized crime from Jean Lafitte’s piracy to the first home of the American Mafia. Learn about the New Orleans conspiracy connection to the John F. Kennedy Assassination and much more.

Fun and interesting

Turned into a private tour for just two of us as no one else reserved it. Very interesting and enjoyable. The tour guide absolutely knew her history and gave us a great female historical perspective.
