Restaurants with good cocktail menus.

Any suggestion on a good day to go? Or when to catch 'Sam'?

It shouldn't be too bad. If the weather is nice I would recommend it (when it is still light out). At night the street car is lit from the inside and doesn't allow for much sight seeing. It costs 1.25 per person to ride; however, the ride may take an hour as you have to take the St. Charles car to Carrollton. Once you get off the car its only two 1/2 blocks to Brigsten's. So, if you'd like to get some sight seeing done, the weather is tolerable, and you have an early reservation (or plan to eat early) I would definitely opt for the street car.

I agree, Loa Bar's drink selection is great and the mixologists are friendly. They have a very eclectic ingredient list, including pine needles! I can't speak for the cocktail menu at Brigsten's though. I might suggest Oak since its only a few blocks away from Brigsten's for a drink before hand. Will you be taking the street car down to Brigsten's or driving? It might be best to settle into Loa Bar for the night as I found their drinks pretty strong.

Cafe Atchafalaya is great! I cannot say enough good things about my experience there.

Suggestions for cool cocktails in New Orleans?

Oak is nice, they have a pretty good cocktail menu. They seem to get pretty busy with a younger crowd, people appear to dress business casual. It was nice, I can't say I had a bad time but it all looked very "put on". It felt dirty and a bit all over the place, I wasn't sure of the "direction" or "theme" of the bar. All of that aside, it was a nice change of pace.

I love to have cocktails, but I'd like to have them in the same place I stop for dinner! I like well crafted cocktails like found at Cure and Loa Bar (in the International House). Does anyone know great places in the city that serves a great meal and great cocktails?

I'm a fan of La Crepe Nanou and LA Thai, but I'm looking for new places. I recently found out about Coquette and I'll probably try there first.
