Summary: Chic former firehouse turned bar.

Cure is a trailblazer in the cocktail revival of New Orleans, housed in a chicly converted firehouse. This venue stands out with its original brick walls and modern wood-panelled ceiling, becoming a magnet for aspiring bartenders and offering a menu that's as dynamic as it is inventive. Cure's craft cocktails are taken seriously and are complemented by equally inspired small plates. Whether you're there for a bustling happy hour or a laid-back evening, the service at Cure is consistently warm and genuine. The bar's moniker nods to the historical relationship between cocktails and medicine, reflected in their imaginative drink selection like the Tequila Rose. To pair with your drink, try unique offerings such as sweet potato-stuffed gnocchi or honey-infused peanut soup, and don't skip the white chocolate almond cake for dessert. With happy hour deals throughout the week and a special discount on bottled wines on Thursdays, Cure promises an enticing experience for cocktail enthusiasts and foodies alike.
