Where to Celebrate Mardi Gras 2018 in New York City

You’ll feel just like you’re on Frenchman Street at these New York spots that have brought the Big Easy to the Big Apple. Celebrate everyone’s favorite bead-slinging holiday in true New Orleans style: a little bit of jazz and a lot of booze.
 
This New Orleans-themed spot in Tribeca is the perfect place to celebrate Fat Tuesday. Channeling all the best aspects of the French Quarter, this quaint restaurant and bar is celebrating every night until the big day with nightly live jazz and classic specials like hurricane punch and a crawfish boil. (82 Reade St.;212-267-3000)
 
A craft brewery in Gowanus, Threes Brewing also hosts a rowdy affair for Mardi Gras. Live music, special theme cocktails and food specials are all on offer for the big day. Starting at 5PM and going on all night, this is the closest you’ll get to a true New Orleans celebration in the city. (333 Douglass St.; 718-522-2110)
 
Named for the New Orleans street famous for its revelry, this Hell’s Kitchen outpost serves up true Big Easy vibes. With $5 hurricanes and Bud Lights all day long, there’s no better spot for Mardi Gras. Try their signature jambalaya at half price or opt for the lethal Swamp Juice cocktail. (346 W. 46th St; 212-245-2030)
 
Infirmary
For a tamer take on Fat Tuesday, head to Infirmary on the Upper East Side. Their cajun-inspired menu features classic ingredients like crawfish, grits and beignets and a rotating special of NOLA features. But the true showstoppers here are the cocktails with a Big Easy twist, like the Lady Voodoo made with Louisiana dark rum or the popular absinthe fountain. (1720 Second Ave.; 917-388-2512)
