Martini Week is back! Vote for your chance to win Voodoo Fest tickets

OffBeat is back with our annual Martini Week competition, a lead-up to the City Park fundraiser, Martini Madness.

For Martini Week, we’ve asked seven local bars to create special variations of the cocktail. The best part? We ask YOU to vote for your favorite, which means drinking martinis all over town!


Martini Week kicks off today (September 4) and runs through September 14. To register your vote, visit this survey. Your vote and submitted information automatically enter you for a chance to win a pair of tickets to this year’s Voodoo Fest, taking place Halloween Weekend and starring Childish Gambino, Marilyn Manson, The Revivalists and tons more.

The bars contending for this year’s Martini Week championship are:

Baru Bistro & Tapas (3700 Magazine St.)
Briquette (701 S Peters St.)
Cornet (700 Bourbon St. – the 2017 champion)
Doris Metropolitan (620 Chartres St.)
Emeril’s Delmonico (1300 St Charles Ave.)
Monkey Board (1111 Gravier St.)
Pal’s (949 N Rendon St.)

Martini drinkers aren’t the only ones eligible for a prize, however! The winning bar will be invited to participate at Martini Madness, a huge affair taking place on City Park grounds on September 21. Read more about that event here.

Thanks to Monkey 47 Dry Gin for being the official drink sponsor of Martini Week 2018!
