    New Orleans is host to more than 3,000 'gin joints'--more per capita than any city in the United States. This lavishly illustrated volume uses more than 200 photographs to provide a glimpse into the architectural and cultural treasures among these many historic saloons. Filled with the lurid tales that hide in these dusty rooms, and accompanied by classic recipes for long-time favorites--among them the Obituary Cocktail itself, not tasted for over 100 years--this volume captures the romance, mystery, and utter uniqueness of the great bars of New Orleans.

    Kerri McCaffety counts among her accolades a Gold Lowell Thomas Award from the Society of American Travel Writers and an Author of the Year award from the New Orleans Gulf South Booksellers Association. Her books with Pelican include Obituary Cocktail: The Great Saloons of New Orleans; The Majesty of St. Charles Avenue; Etouff�e, Mon Amour: The Great Restaurants of New Orleans; Napoleon House; and St. Joseph Altars.
