French Quarter bohemians designed The Bachelor in New Orleans as an unauthorized guidebook before unauthorized guidebooks. Over forty marvelous block prints illustrate a remarkably jaunty text, delivering a portrait of New Orleans nightlife unlike any other. Restored from the original 1942 lithographs and set in full color, this is the quintessential book for any bachelor about to dive into the old quarter.
The Bachelor in New Orleans discusses, among other things: absinthe, the Ramos Gin Fizz, Cafe Brulot, Bourbon Street, The Sazerac Bar, Court of the Two Sisters, Pat O'Brien's, The Monteleone Hotel Bar, art, Cafe Lafitte, Tujague's Bar, The Walnut Room, Micky Finns, Antoine's, Galatoire's, Dinkelspiel salad, lonliness, Mardi Gras, drinking, jazz and sporting houses
