Bring your own booze is a thing in lots of cities, a way for eaters to save their Benjamins by hauling their own beer and wine to the restaurant. And while it’s sometimes an option at spots that serve alcohol, most opportunities to carry in happens when the restaurant doesn’t have an official (super expensive to buy) liquor license.
In New Orleans, cocktails are so plentiful they’re served to go and most establishments consider it a necessity to obtain a license, but there are still some great places that make BYOB available at a reasonable rate. If your dinner is the kind of occasion that just demands that special bottle you’ve been saving, you can always go high-end at Arnaud’s or Meauxbar, whose corkage fees are $25-$30 per bottle, but for our purposes, here are ten restaurants to BYOB ranging from no corkage fee to $12 per bottle. Good thing libations are sold at corner stores everywhere in case you don’t plan ahead.
