Fun place if your expectations aren't too high. They're still putting it together. Be aware that it's not open on Tuesday! Nothing thrilling, but, some fun facts along the way. Note: across the street is the New Orleans Jazz market which features NO jazz band with Irwin Mayfield. He plays there on occasion. Check it out!

What You'll Get


The only thing better than a glistening fried onion on your saucer is a glistening fried onion framed and mounted in honor of itself. Today's deal gets you into an estate of honored eats. For $5, you get general admission to the Southern Food and Beverage Museum, a $10 value. Your Groupon grants you entrance to the Riverwalk Marketplace museum, as well as the Martha-endorsed Museum of the American Cocktail, nestled within the Southern Food and Beverage Museum.

Spend a day discovering the cuisine and culture of the South to build up your appetite before letting loose in one of the greatest food cities in the world. Whether you’re entertaining out-of-town guests or earning your foodie merit badge, the museum’s permanent collection of exhibits allows you to explore the myriad tastes and traditions unique to southern food. The Louisiana Eats! Laissez Faire-Savoir Fare exhibit chronicles the evolution of the region's flavors over time, while the Eating in the White House exhibit exposes the inner workings and dining habits of first mansion residents throughout history. Recently opened exhibits, such as SPOILED, which tells the tearful photographic tale of post-Katrina refrigerators, and an upcoming exhibit celebrating the history and heritage of the hurricane cocktail keep the museum's content as fresh as a butter-melting biscuit.

Nestled within the museum is the Museum of the American Cocktail, which houses archaic cocktail artifacts such as the first printed bartenders' guide by "Professor" Jerry Thomas, ancient whiskey bottles, and tabletop stills alongside prohibition-era propaganda and clever drink disguises. Bring your great-aunt for a guided tour of drinking days long gone, and give thanks for the bygone days of bathtub Jager-bombs and skirt-disguised stills.
