The drinking culture in New Orleans is legendary, and the city’s rich nightlife is buoyed by daiquiris. They are NOLA’s unofficial official cocktail. “Just being here in the city in the nighttime is hypnotic, but having a daiquiri can make it more interesting, more adventurous, more enjoyable,” says Aaron, who works at a spot called Gene’s Curbside Daiquiris, where the demand for the popular drink is overwhelming on a Saturday night. This is the second episode in The Atlantic’s video series “Saturday Night in America,” which uncovers pockets of nightlife across the nation. It was directed by Rosie Haber.
