    The Sazerac Bar claims to serve the only authentic Ramos Gin Fizz in town. It was apparently Governor Huey P. Long’s favorite drink. Read more

    Great place for a classic Whisky cocktail - next time you order a manhattan, go for "dry" or "perfect" - subs/cuts the sweet vermouth with dry vermouth instead. A completely different cocktail.

    Tony and Davis Rogan enjoy a few signature cocktails and an ambience that harkens to an older time. Named after the world’s first mixed drink, Sazerac has as much history and lore as its namesake.

    Renowned historical bar inside the Roosevelt Hotel. Open since the 1930s, The Sazerac is now The Official Cocktail of New Orleans, and this is the best place to try it. My fave is The Ramos Gin Fizz.

    Pay homage to this bar's namesake with a toast to what many believe is the first cocktail in America. This bar inside the Roosevelt Hotel has an elegant upscale vibe perfect for a date night spot.

    Love this classy ambiance! Great drinks. Preferred the 1840 sazerac over the original.

    Excellent destination: handcrafted cocktails and a knowledgeable bartender. We especially enjoyed the Blood Orange Sunset the Southern Gentleman and the Texas Mule. It's an experience not just a bar.

    A solid stop for a Sazerac (of course) or a Ramos Gin Fizz. Inside the beautiful Roosevelt Hotel.

    The gin fizz is amazing. It's creamy without having any milk in it. And very easy to drink!

    Even though the Sazerac is New Orleans' official cocktail, I wouldn't say it was my favorite - but they do make some awesome Bellini-s 👍

    Beautiful, beautiful bar. Step back in time. Great, though expensive, drinks particularly the Ramos Gin Fizz, Sazerac and Pimms Cup.

    Home of the namesake cocktail, in a lovely, Art Deco designed space. The gin fizz is great too.

    Ramos Gin Fizz is a must. Classic bar with beautiful hotel. Artwork is dated and fairly inappropriate for modern day. Drinks are spot on.

    Yes, the gin fizz is great. Try the Hot Buttered Rum in winter, though! It's like liquid Christmas. Not too sweet, not too strong...just PERFECT!

    This historic bar specializes in classics like a Gin Fizz or, of course, a Sazarac. There's plenty of Scotch, too. – Green Guide Editor

    I know you'll want a sazerac, but try a gin fizz. Tangy and sweet and artfully made. Like a soufflé in a glass!

    One word. Classy. One of the best Old Fashioned's I've ever had. Dress up. Bring a date. Step back in time a little.

    A little fancier than I expected, but worth it for the history and the Sazarac cocktail

    If the Roosevelt Hotel didn't empress you then Sazerac will, Art Deco interiors and hands down the best Gin Fiz's in the world.

    In spite of its history, this is not the best place to taste the classics, but worth seeing the 1930’s WPA-era murals by artist Paul Nina.
