Exploring New Orleans

Exploring New Orleans

On of our favorite cities to visit is New Orleans – from the food to the live music, what's not to love?!

We recently got a chance to head down to Nola for a friend's wedding, and used the time to explore the city! 

We started by grabbing a drink and checking in to our favorite hotel, Queen & Cresent (Q&C).

This hotel is so perfectly curated, and just a few blocks from the heart of the French Quarter.

After checking in went stopped by Mother's for some po' boys and gumbo (thanks for the recommendation, Beyonce).

After lunch we headed in to the French Quarter and stopped by my FAVORITE bar in New Orleans – Cane & Table. I like a bar that has some character and pizzazz, and this bar has it all. Oh, and great drinks!

  • Bacchanal Wine – David made me walk like 3 miles to find this wine bar and it was SO WORTH IT. This is my other favorite spot in New Orleans. While I may take an Uber or Lift next time, I will DEFINITELY be going back!
