Old Absinthe House

240 Bourbon Street

Cocktails & Bars + French Quarter

For over 200 years the Old Absinthe House bar has been a staple of life in the Vieux Carré.

Located on the corner of Rue Bourbon and Rue Bienville, the cooper-topped wooden bar captivates patrons as they sip their favorite beverages and the sights and sounds of the French Quarter trickle into this comfy tavern. Over the years, the Old Absinthe House has flourished into one of New Orleans most prominent social scenes. Half the fun of this place is its delicious history, and the rumors and facts that intertwine the ideals of the Old Absinthe House.

Sample the generous selections of fine malt scotches or sample some house specialties such as the “The Absinthe House Frappe” (now made with Herbsaint), an Old Fashion, an Absinthe Suissesse or the famous Ramos Gin Fizz.

Calling cards adorn the walls of the Old Absinthe House and no visit is complete with out leaving your card on the wall with the millions of others who have given testimony to the Old Absinthe House’s motto, “Everyone you have known or ever will know eventually ends up at the old absinthe house.”
