As the summer months creep in, explore some of the region's most unique spots for a chilled, finely crafted cocktail. 

The Julep Room

Located in the cellar of Aunt Jenny's Catfish Restaurant, famous musicians such as Elvis Presley and Billie Holiday have performed in this eclectic and intimate environment. Catch live music by local and regional musicians on a nightly basis. Our secret? Step outside for views of Fort Bayou at sunset.

Sycamore House

The bar is nestled in a National Register property overlooking historic Main Street in Old Town Bay St. Louis and serves up craft cocktails. Originally a pair of 19th century Acadian cottages, the sides of The Sycamore House were combined into a single dwelling in the 1850’s. 

The Project Lounge

A local favorite, this joint can craft any drink you're interested in trying and it offers up one of the best burgers in Coastal Mississippi. Yelp reviewer Alex W. from Houston said, "The burgers are really good - so good we went back a second time before we left town." Be sure to bring cash, though, as credit cards are not accepted. 

The Wilbur Bar

This speakeasy inside of The Roost Ocean Springs was named the Most Beautifully Designed Bar in Mississippi by Architectural Digest and for good reason. The original building was built in 1894 and boasts a long and colorful history. The almost hidden bar pays homage to the building's origins as The Wilbur Motel and features distinct artwork in an intimate atmosphere.  

The bar at Mary Mahoney's

Located within one of the oldest homes in America, enjoy a drink in the cellar-style bar or take your cocktail outside onto the patio, surrounded by hundred-year-old oaks.  

The Whiskey Bar 

One of the newest establishments in Coastal Mississippi, this comfortable bar is located in downtown Pass Christian and is the perfect spot to share a cocktail with friends and family. 

Rackhouse Steakhouse Bar

Found on the top floor of Rackhouse Steakhouse in downtown Gulfport, this bar features more than 30 wines by the glass and over 100 bourbons, ryes, whiskeys and scotches.

Robo Bar at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Biloxi 

Create your perfect cocktail on a tablet and watch your very own robotic bartender bring your drink of choice to life. This modern atmosphere will be the perfect backdrop for your next Instagram post.
