There’s nothing quite like a bachelor party in New Orleans. This city is a location unlike any other, with an amazing local culture and unbeatable booze. From the food to the fun, New Orleans is a great place for any wedding party.
Where to Eat and Drink
If you’re headed out for some daytime drinks, check out The Avenue Pub on St. Charles Ave in the Garden District. Be sure to browse their “Big Beer List” for what’s currently on tap. The Avenue Pub also has a huge selection of bourbon, rye, and whiskey for you to try. As you enjoy your drinks, take note of the GlassblowerBen glasses we made custom for the bar.
For a Cajun-inspired dinner that will be hard to beat, head over to Cochon. This Warehouse District restaurant has a delicious selection of meats and bourbon. Order a bourbon flight to try a whole bunch, and ask the staff for suggestions—they won’t steer you wrong.
When that hangover kicks in and you just need a burger, go to Port of Call. These burgers are notoriously good. Since the 1960s, Port of Call has been serving up its selection of hamburgers and steaks with hot potatoes. Not to mention, it’s in the French Quarter, so when you’re done with your mushroom cheeseburger, you can head over to Bourbon Street to start up the next round of debauchery!
Lately in New Orleans, microbreweries have been popping up everywhere. Urban South Brewery offers seasonal and year-round beers in its taproom for you to sample all afternoon long. You can linger with your friends and pet some of the locals’ dogs that come through, and then get some beers to go for later on!
New Orleans Bachelor Party Gifts
Whether you’re shopping for the groom or all of the groomsmen, every guy could use some nice drinking accessories.

Everything from an ice cold beer to a Tennessee whiskey or any other drink of choice gets better in one of our handmade glasses. GlassblowerBen has bachelor party gifts or wedding gifts for everyone.
If your groom loves to host a large crowd, GlassblowerBen’s Mixing Pitcher would be a great bachelor party gift or wedding present. He can whip up some Sazeracs with Peychaud’s Bitters and serve them up with an absinthe rinse on Ben’s Flares (which also make fantastic gifts).
