We went to see Museum of the American Cocktail & were disappointed. There are a few glass cases that allow for good viewing, but the enormous wall display is too far behind the rope to view easily. Absinthe section was more accessible. We asked ourselves...More
The adjoining Toups restaurant and bar are excellent and make it possible to visit the cocktail museum and the Southern food museum in the same space with a drink in hand. Staff was very nice and there are some great items for purchase in the...More
I am having a really hard time writing this review. I really wanted to love this museum. But the logistics of it just made things kinda overwhelming to me. Kinda like shopping at Macy's. Some people love it. It is just a little too much...More
If you enjoy a libation, this museum is a fun place to find out more about what has been popular over time. One whole corner is devoted to absinthe, the anise-flavored spirit with a storied history. Obviously, there will be little of interest to kids...More
Phenomenal experience! Come on a Saturday for a free food and wine demonstration with amazing historical facts and tasting guidance. Friendly people who gave us great advice on local haunts and restaurants. Worth repeating!
Very small and staff is not so friendly or engaged. Definitely not for children. This is more of a small display inside a showroom than a museum. The display is part of a larger food exhibit area but the entire space can be viewed in...More
Small musuem with a few interesting exhibits.

The musuem also has southern food exhibits as well. If you are...More

We just happend to find this when we were walking through from the convention center to the aquarium.
It has so much to read and see about Southern Food and Drink.
It is a great way to spend a rainy morning or afternoon.
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
