I agree with some other reviewers that the place is hard to find and you should take a cab but beyond those issues the drinks were amazing. Our bartender Ryan was a little quiet at first but we were a pretty adventurous group so he jumped in and started describing everything and asking us what we liked and we ended... More

Know that Cure is in a shady neighborhood with nothing else around. If your visiting Cure at night, you must take a cab, do not walk or ride a bike there. The cocktails are as good as expected. The bartenders know their stuff, so you can trust that they will make your drink correctly. As for the atmosphere... I had... More

This is the coolest bar ever. We were there early and the bartender obliged our request to create a custom cocktail using a liquor we were curious about. It was fantastic. They do all sorts of cool stuff like making a special punch bowl each day, offering craft cocktails at happy hour prices, making their own bitters, etc., etc. This... More

Delicious and creative cocktails and a wonderful small plates menu. This is a fantastic spot Uptown for drinks and a bite to eat. Our server was fantastic and knew the drink menu well. We loved this stretch of Freret Street. New Orleans is much more than the French Quarter and Cure is a perfect example of that.

I came here on a whim. It took some time to get a seat, then it was at the bar which worked out. The menu is beautiful and there are a lot of different concoctions with ingredients like "alpine herbs" and such. You should google their menu before hand to see what you would like to try or in order... More

Love this place! Unique & incredible drinks that are like mouth-explosions. Classy place with great service. Take a look at the drink menu on their website. If you're like me, you'll probably have to Google some of the ingredients. These guys are terrific and terrifically creative mixologists. Wait until you see the tinctures they make themselves and keep at the... More

We went on a Saturday evening and although it wasn't busy it still had a great atmosphere. Like all places in the summer the AC was too cold. We had food and cocktails and everything we had was great

One of the best venues I've ever been into. Great selection of spirits behind the bar, and excellent cocktails. Can't wait to go back.

Though I've read many of the reviews citing "snobby" service, I've never had anything but the best. Service has been informative, patient, and responsive. Perhaps different people elicit different responses. Certainly I've had a cocktail or two that I didn't care for, as well as those that were fantastic. You're not supposed to like everything. Certain critics have challenged the... More
