Beachbum Berry’s Latitude 29 makes Esquire’s list of the best bars in America



  Drinks writer David Wondrich compiles Esquire's annual list of the best bars in America, and the 2015 edition was released last week. Among the 15 bars on the list is Beachbum Berry's Latitude 29 (321 N. Peters St., 504-609-3811;, the French Quarter tiki lounge and restaurant opened by Jeff "Beachbum" Berry and wife Annene Kaye. The bar features Berry's versions of tiki classics, which he's compiled in several cocktail books, including Beachbum Berry's Sippin' Safari and Beachbum Berry's Grog Log.

  Wondrich credits Berry with launching the current tiki revival in 1998 and says, "Latitude 29 isn't the fanciest or most eye-popping Tiki bar out there, but damned if the drinks aren't the best of their kind."
