Fleurty Girl: French 75 is one of the best cocktail bars in New Orleans.
In fact, it might just be the best cocktail bar in America. GQ and Esquire
magazine named it among the top 25 bars in the entire country, and in a

French 75 Speaker: It used to be an all-male dining room until the ’70s.
It’s a French safari theme. You go back to the 1920s. It’s a good way to
start and end your evening. Here you are ma’am.
Cheers, you guys.

Fleurty Girl: I mean, look at the set-up. We’ve got pomme souffle and
