There are sadly no second lines and thankfully less projectile vomiting from second-story balconies but here's where to get your dose of green, purple and gold for Mardi Gras in Beijing.


The Classic: Nola

Nola's named after New Orleans and chef Brandon Trowbridge goes all out every year with live music, traditional foods and plenty of liquid libations. The Randy Abel Stable will be on hand to provide entertainment and we hope there will be our favorite Fat Tuesday treat, king cake.

The Party: Cafe de la Poste

We'll let the party poster speak for itself but we suspect that the party at Cafe de la Poste might not stay PG for long. We've been promised "bourbon, body painting and beads," and we all know how those beads are usually distributed ...

The Hutong: Cu Ju

Cu Ju ditches the Moroccan menu for a night in favor of jambalaya, hurricanes and Sazeracs all in celebration of the Crescent City. They also have free shots for those who turn up wearing masks and beads. 

The Weekend: 4corners

For those of you who can't make out on a school night, 4corners has you covered. Their Friday night festivities include beads and masks, a Cajun-style menu from the kitchen and specialty drinks all night long.
