Cannot describe how happy I am that my favorite bartender Matt is working at Cure now. If I have any friends visiting me New Orleans, finding a craft cocktail by Matt is always first on the bucket list. Sit at the bar, he takes the time to get to know you as he's making your drink, making sure that he finds a drink to fit your needs, likes, and even personality. Cure has always been a great spot, but now that it includes cocktails by Matt, it's probably my most frequented spot on the city. The drinks on the menu always impress, but i always choose to trust Matt's talent and taste his newest creation. Truly talented is the only way I know how to put it. Locals and tourists alike, your experience at Cure with a craft cocktail by Matt will be the favorite part of your day. Cheers!

The folks that work at Cure are serious about cocktails. They aspire to make the best and most representative version of every one. The bar tenders are serious professionals that truly know their craft. Drinks aren't cheap, but they're crafted and meant to be savored and enjoyed, nut pounded.

My main reason for coming here was that the bar is listed as the 43rd best bar in the world. There are surprisingly few outside of New York and London, mostly in major world cities (San Francisco, Moscow). When I arrived in the dim and sparsely decorated bar, then, I was surprised to see the place nearly empty. Granted, it was cold and stormy by New Orleans standards, so perhaps people were just hunkering down. Still, I expected a bit more of a crowd. Only two bartenders were working that night, and even with perhaps a dozen patrons, they seemed a bit overwhelmed. My companion and I were both fans of rye, so I got a Sazerac and she an old fashioned. Both were fine, though perhaps my expectations were unreasonably high because of its place on a list on the Internet. We moved on to other things that were supposedly specialties of the house. While all very nice, none were so amazing as to change my view of what a cocktail should be. A fine experience, though perhaps not worth the special trip.

Cure has always been one of my go-to bars in the city, but now it just got even better. Matt is a bartender who I have followed all over the city, because frankly, no one makes a cocktail nearly as good as him. He worked at Bombay Club, Bellocq, and now finally is at Cure. Matt defines what the New Orleans experience should look like. He makes sure to personally get to know all of his customers & ensure they are getting a drink uniquely tailored to them. My best advice is ditch the menu and trust Matt. Tell him what you usually drink and what type of drink you're interested in, and he'll whip up the most innovative and delicious cocktail you've ever tasted. The venue itself is amazing, the patio is perfect, but I would always suggest perching up at the bar and getting to know the bartenders. I've followed Matt through the various bars in the city he has worked at, and I must say, he continuously gets better, move innovative, and his artistry of cocktails is truly the best in the city.

Craft cocktails... what's not to love? Well, there can be quite a lot actually. I wanted to like this place. The problems were many, but first, let's talk about what it has going for it: The good: The drinks are great. The pricing is in line with what to expect with trendy craft cocktails. With a date, you can probably cross the century mark without trying. The cocktails themselves are creative and feel new. The bad: While the decoration and style of the bar is very much aligned with the cocktails (hip/trendy), they didn't think seating out very well. There are some parts where the seating is more for the look rather than the function. While packed bars can be good or bad for some people, the noise level was just too high. When I can barely see or hear the person at my small table, then that's my sign that the place just wasn't well thought out. In other words, don't go here if you are on a first date or want to catch up with old friends. The other big negative are the servers. The bar was full, but by no means packed or what I would say is a busy bar. Yet, the server took 30 minutes to get our order after taking about 10 minutes to get our menu. After the drinks made it over 15 minutes later (actually faster than expected), the server took too long for us to even consider ordering again. About 45 minutes passed between getting our drinks and the server checking on us again despite numerous attempts to get her attention. She obviously couldn't hear us even though she was 4 feet away. Go here for the drinks and only that.
