Old Absinthe House New Orleans Reviews
Dec 24, 2007
The Old Absinthe House is located on Rue Bourbon and dates back to the early 1800's. Andrew Jackson and Oscar Wilde are among the former patrons, and original fountains used for absinthe drinks are still present. The layout is simply a bar, fireplace, and some standing room, while the walls are decorated with business cards from vistors throughout the years.
The bar is a great place to get some local feel, have some good converstations, and get your night started. The bartenders are friendly and take pride in preparing your drink; my sazerac was constructed in the proper manner and tasted spot on.
