New Orleans is still a stronghold for dive bars, but few rival the dingy, low-lit beauty of Brothers III. For six decades, regulars have flocked to this mustard-colored building to play George Jones on the jukebox while sipping Coors and shooting the breeze. It’s open 24 hours, and ready to soothe any hair-of-the-dog aches.
Know Before You Go: A stable of octogenarian regulars with colorful names like “Spider” will regale you with stories, if you’re interested.
Drink to Drink: Beer and a shot, naturally.
