Where to Celebrate Mardi Gras 2017 in New York City

Fat Tuesday has come around at last, and in case you’re not Catholic, that means Mardi Gras. Time to let loose to some jazz, drink some classic cocktails born from the bayou, and put away some awfully good beignets. NYC knows how to party too, so we’ve rounded up the best hot spots putting on their New Orleans flair for the occasion. So BYOB (bring your own beads) and do Mardi Gras the “Nola” way.

Bourbon Street Bar and Grille
Can’t make it to the real Bourbon Street for Mardi Gras? That’s okay — over in Hell’s Kitchen is a tribute to the infamous New Orleans strip, the Bourbon Street Bar & Grille. Of course, they wouldn’t be much of a tribute if they didn’t go all out for Mardi Gras, and indeed they have. This year be sure to stop by for $5 hurricane cocktails, $5 beers, and fill yourself up with some Jambalaya, which is half price all day. (346 W 46th St.; 212-245-2030)

Bar Lunatico
Party with Tubby, a five piece band harkening the sounds of old-school New Orleans R&B, this mardi gras. Along with the soul soothing sounds of Tubby, the Chef has planned out a special New Orleans inspired menu with beautiful bites that’ll transport you right to the bayou. As far as drinks go, you simply must try their special French Quarter Crawl - a combination of cognac, creme de noyaux, aged white rum, triple sec, and Peychaud’s. (486 Halsey St., Brooklyn; 718-513-0339)
 
Claw Daddy’s
This lively joint is a piece of Louisiana right in the heart of the LES. This year for Mardi Gras, they’re are throwing a party sponsored by Abitas beer, and that means just five dollars pints all night long to go with that sumptuous Cajun and Creole cuisine. (185 Orchard St.; 646-590-6819)

Broadstone Bar & Kitchen
This year, Broadstone Bar and Kitchen over in the Financial District will be hosting their first ever Mardi Gras party. Doing it up right, the event is sponsored by Bayou Rum and will be pouring classic NoLo cocktails all night long - Hurricanes, Sazeracs, and Vieux Carré are among the lineups. As well as classic Cajun cocktails, the kitchen will be putting out some classic bites as well, so if you’re in the mood for some gumbo, jazz, and a hurricane, Broadstone’s first Mardi Gras party will be a hit. (88 Broad St.; 646-707-0426)

Treadwell Park
This beer hall located in the Upper East Side will be throwing their first Mardi Gras party hosted by infamous drag queen Ariel Italic. With Nola approved bites, six featured brews from Abita Brewing Company, and a signature sazerac, Treadwell Park is worth being a part of your Mardi Gras tour in NYC. (1125 1st Ave.; 212-832-1551)

Tchoup Shop
This New Orleans style pop up located at Heavy Woods Bar in Bushwick is bringing the party from New Orleans to NYC. Chef Simon Glenn, who famously cooked during the Saints games at d.b.a., is bringing his scrumptious take on Cajun cuisine along with $5 dollar pints of Abitas and $8 hurricanes served both regular and frozen. (50 Wyckoff Ave., Brooklyn; 347-223-2710)
