Girls Night in New Orleans

Clink glasses over flights of bubbles at Effervescence.

Girls’ Night in Nola is just the thing for leaving the work woes and kiddos behind for a lil’ wine and female friend time.

Yes, please!

Erase any mental stereotypical images of bachelorettes throwing back skinny Hand Grenades on Bourbon Street. We’re guessing that toxic and tacky is not your style—nor ours.

How about rooftop bars with insane craft cocktails and city views, swanky lounges with Parisian flair and restaurant hot spots for shared plates and Champagne? {clink}

Milk Punch has got you covered!

Here, 7 sophisticated (well, mostly) suggestions to fill a stress-free weekend full of flavorful bites, inventive cocktails and a taste of the New Orleans nightlife scene.

What to wear: You can be never be overdressed in New Orleans so sparkle on! Pack a dress for a fancy brunch, comfy shoes for shopping and anything you don’t want to ruin if walking the French Quarter. A hat for sun protection is always a good idea and the climate is tropical so be prepared for random showers!

Shop till ya Drop: Unleash the tribe in the French Quarter and walk up and down Royal Street and Chartres.
Royal Street musts: Rue Royale, Krewe sunglasses, Gallery Orange, plus plenty of antique and fun souvenir shops.
Chartres Street musts: Hemline, UAL and other funky little finds.

Drive or uber Uptown to Magazine Street to hit a big variety of shops from high-end interiors to cheap chic clothing. It’s long and spread out so driving is not a bad idea to park, shop and repeat. A few musts: Perch, Rivers Spencer, Hazelnut, Stella Dallas, UAL and Hemline and lots in between.
