Molly's at the Market, New Orleans

4.8
#108 of 154 in Nightlife in New Orleans
Having already established Molly's on Toulouse, Carol and Jim Monaghan opened the doors to Molly's at the Market for the first time in 1974. In 1980, Jim sold Molly's on Toulouse to focus his attention and efforts on Decatur Street, The French Market, and the Lower French Quarter. For nearly 40 years, Molly's has been the preferred hangout for the broadest possible spectrum of local and international characters, media, and politicians.

Every year Molly's sponsors a St. Patrick's Day Parade, a Charity Poker Crawl, and a Halloween Parade. In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, Molly's stayed open throughout the ordeal, providing a respite for locals and relief workers alike. The Halloween Parade went on as scheduled.

Four decades later, Molly's at the Market is a family-run business known the world over for its signature drinks, strikingly attractive regulars, and earnestly cynical worldview. Come sit in the window with a Frozen Irish Coffee and see what we mean...

  • Amazing Irish coffees! Absolutely my favorite drink in New Orleans. Service from the bartender is typically slow but there's another bar in the back that opens up during the busy hours and it's a very fun atmosphere. During my week in NOLA, this was the only place I stopped at almost everyday and it was always for a large Irish coffee. Will definitely return next time I visit.
  • Ask for the frozen irish coffee with a shot of jameson! Be nice to the bartender and tip well! They'll remember you. 😉
