Concierge.com's insider take:
Despite being attached to a landmark Creole restaurant, Arnaud's French 75 somehow maintains its own vibe and identity, especially among traveling cocktail geeks. Head bartender Chris Hannah presides over the sumptuous, parlorlike space with an encyclopedic knowledge of the classics and a penchant for experimentation. If you're in the mood for a refreshing cocktail, order up a frothy Ramos Gin Fizz or La Louisianne for a pitch-perfect rendition. Or if Hannah is behind the bar, tell him your likes and dislikes, and let him concoct an appropriate libation to match tastes.—Pableaux Johnson
