Monkey Hill Bar
Only a few blocks from the zoo and named for what was once the highest point in New Orleans (a mound of dirt amid the animal cages), Monkey Hill Bar serves the needs of more evolved creatures. Settle into a leather armchair with a single malt Scotch or flirt with other well-dressed young professionals around the pool table. In most New Orleans bars, grit is preferred over high style. This swank Uptown spot offers a more sophisticated setting for sipping fine spirits and wine.
