The British Side of New Orleans

Posted: Jul. 10th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Everybody knows that New Orleans is inundated with French culture – after all, they don't call a sizable portion of the city the French Quarter for nothing – but what about it's British side? The diversity of Louisiana's oldest and most famous city doesn't end with France! Check out these uniquely British attractions next time you're in town.

New Orleans is full of culture. We found some Brit bits throughout the city. Check out 10 British Things About New Orleans:

1) The Pimm’s Cup

Bar Tonique, located at 820 N. Rampart St., offers this distinctly British summer quencher made with a spicy English gin–based liqueur (Pimm’s No. 1) and a generous pour of soda or ginger ale. Here’s the recipe if you’d like to make it on your own!

2) The Bombay Club

This candlelit venue, located at 830 Conti Street, follows an old-time British gentleman’s club theme with comfy lounging areas and lots of wood. The club offers music, food and spirits right in the heart of the French Quarter.
