#2459 - Chart Room, New Orleans - 3/18/2014
A tip of the strongly poured cup to Ray Newman, who passed away about a month before this visit, after running the Chart Room for almost 40 years. Dubbed a "de facto oasis of sanity" in Esquire's list of best bars in the country, this bar is pleasingly super dark, cozy, and quite un-touristy for a bar near ground zero of the French Quarter.
