This year, Mardi Gras comes to us much later than usual. Normally in February, Mardi Gras 2014 is officially on March 4.
Sure, when you think Mardi Gras, you think New Orleans, but let’s not kid ourselves for one second. This is New York City. There is a party for every holiday in this town, and Fat Tuesday is no exception. Here are the best was to celebrate Mardi Gras in NYC.
Bourbon Street Bar & Grille
This Hell’s Kitchen bar takes its name from the street that makes Mardi Gras in New Orleans famous: Bourbon. Every year Bourbon Street hosts one of the biggest Mardi Gras parties in NYC and this year is no different. There will be beads, face painting, giveaways and food and drink specials all day
Another aptly named NYC party location for Mardi Gras, Ninth Ward in the East Village will be celebrating the day with some of the best Cajun food in the city.
This dive bar will bring out the hipster in all of us with some authentic New Orleans Jazz and cheap drinks on Fat Tuesday
Get yourself a hurricane at this New Orleans themed bar. Like 169 Bar, this is a bit divey-er than our other options, but still a great place to celebrate Mardi Gras
