DRINK: Square Root

DRINK: Square Root

The more laidback, leather-clad, smoking room–style upstairs sister to New Orleans’ tasting menu wunderkind Square Root, Root Squared feels like a good-old-boys club that welcomes anyone. Playful takes on classics and surprising ingredient pairings dot the cocktail list (like the Mezcalimotxo, which blends mezcal, red wine, cola, Champagne and chile) and a menu of cured meats (Apple Anise-Scented Black Pudding), cheeses and small plates ensure no one in your party will go hungry. A killer happy hour deal features bottled cocktails—either a Sazerac or Old Fashioned—suitable for two drinkers at $10 a pop between 5 and 7 p.m. each day.

Know Before You Go: Root Squared offers one of the city’s best—and only—balconies overlooking the hum of people on Magazine Street.

Drink to Drink: The Charming Rogue combines aged rum, banana, amaretto, Bénédictine, chicory, pecan and spices as a tribute to New Orleans’ history as a port town.
