Not only does this unassuming, dark den have one of the finest drinking atmospheres in the French Quarter, it also serves some of its finest cocktails. With drinks served in plastic cups, it’s a no-frills, cash-only affair at Chart Room. This bar somehow finds a way to strike a balance between locals and tourists, with a crowd that’s never too rowdy but never boring either. Spend an evening putting tunes on the jukebox and striking up friendly conversations. It’ll be 4am before you know it.
