The Crescent City is awash with great bars, saloons and dives to visit, but we've compiled a list of what we think are the oldest. There are a couple of "maybe's" here but it depends on how you define bars. For example, Antoine's is not here though Arnaud's and Tujague's are. But Antoine's is almost completely known as a restaurant, in fact that's what they want to be known as.
Arnaud's, however, has some great history in it's bars and has had the Richelieu bar since the beginning.
Tujague's, as you'll read later, has real history at its bar. In any case we present what we think are the five oldest bars in New Orleans. Cheers!
