Have Your Own Mardi Gras Parade of Cocktails in Atlanta | Mardi Gras Midtown Thursday 13 February, 2020

I tell you all on the blog often on of my favorite cities in America is New Orleans. I can visit New Orleans over and over and never get bored, but what if I can get a “taste” of Nola and Mardi Gras without leaving Atlanta? For the third year in a row, beginning Tuesday February 4, and running through Fat Tuesday, February 25, Tapa Tapa will transform into a Mardi Gras celebration of Mardi Gras Midtown.

On the heels of the success of the holiday collaboration Miracle on Monroe, they will be teaming up with Big Citizen’s with Mardi Gras Midtown: Parade of Cocktails, eight unique drinks for the pop-up experience. Bar manager Nick Chaivarlis (ink+elm, 8arm, The Lawrence, and Miracle Bar Atlanta) will also have a hand in the pop-up cocktail menu.

Mardi Gras Midtown has an amazingly festive craft a menu of specialty cocktails to compliment the Mardi Gras décor and Carnival party vibe of the pop-up.” 

This year’s pop-up is not only inspired by the New Orleans Mardi Gras celebration, but five other world-renowned carnivals around the globe happening now – Rio de Janerio in Brazil, Venice in Italy, Mazatlan in Mexico, Trinidad & Tobago in Port of Spain, and Cadiz in Spain.  The unique experience of Mardi Gras Midtown will feature their Parade of Cocktails; eight unique drinks for the pop-up experience. There will also be some Boubon St. Bites that will make you feel like you took a fun trip to New Orleans, but you will be right in the city of Atlanta!


One of my favorite foods I love to indulge in is traditional New Orleans cuisine. Its nothing like it ans it is always like a foodie party in your mouth. I get sad sometimes because I feel to get authentic creole/cajun food I will have to go to NOLA directly, but for this pop-up I can enjoy some of my favorite treats in Atlanta!

Red Beans and Rice Boudin Balls

Fresh Seasoned Crawfish

I love crawfish but this was my first time eating crawfish in its shell. This is quiet the experience but it was so good! A great NOLA treat, I kept getting more and more so definitely a favorite of mine here!

Seafood Boil

Alligator Bites
