As we roll up to Mardi Gras, which has arguably become one of the most widely celebrated festivals in the U.S., some of us are lucky enough to find ourselves heading to the heart of the party -- New Orleans.

For more information on historic bars across the country check out Bucket List Bars, available on Amazon or anywhere fine books are sold.
