Our Guide to Local Happy Hours In and Around New Orleans

I don’t know about you, but there are some days that I get off of work and just need a drink. Sometimes I find myself childless for the afternoon / evening and have the opportunity to go out. On these rare days, I love to grab a drink and a bite to eat with friends at a local happy hour. I have compiled a list of some happy hours that I have frequented all over metro New Orleans for your enjoyment. Happy drinking!
