If you ask a New Orleanian to name a favorite bar, chances are you'll get a qualified answer that includes a list of watering holes, each a legitimate favorite based on whether the immediate goal is to get a particular cocktail, build dining into after-work drinks, hear live music, play a game of pool, impress a date, dance, watch a game with other fans — or whatever else calls for a celebratory toast. The 2011 Fall Bar Guide is a compendium of all kinds of places to drink and what each offers. The list is arranged by neighborhood and includes dive bars, hotel bars, music clubs, craft cocktail bars, restaurant bars, sports bars, beer pubs and more. Who knows, hiding in the listings might be your new favorite hangout.
