In our September Travel issue F&W, readers voted New Orleans the best city for a cocktail crawl. So we turned to Jeff "Beachbum" Berry to find the best places in town for a well-made drink. The rum guru and tiki scholar recently opened Beachbum Berry's Latitude 29, where he serves lesser-known vintage tropical drinks as well as modern innovations. 321 N. Peters St.; latitude29nola.com.
Here, a list of Jeff Berry's top five bars for a perfect New Orleans cocktail crawl:
"This tiny jazz club has a bar headed by Kimberly Patton-Bragg, a veteran of Danny Meyer's New York City restaurants. It's probably the only place in town to hear live music and get a great craft cocktail. The Spaghetti Western rye drink is amazing." 536 Frenchmen St.; 3musesnola.com.
