What is a bar you can get into at 19 in the french quarter?

My husband and i have grown up in louisiana.I have been to the french quarter often but not the bars because i am only 19.My husband turned 21 the day he shipped off to south carolina for basic training . I am 2yrs younger. We both want to go to at least one bar in the french quarter before we ship off to germany for his first duty station.Any help is appreciated.

Under Louisiana state law:

Underage Consumption of Alcohol
Consumption is prohibited WITH THE FOLLOWING EXCEPTION(S):
• private residence
• OR parent/guardian presence and consent
• OR legal-age spouse
• one or more specified religious, educational, or medical purposes

Furnishing of Alcohol to Minors
Furnishing is prohibited WITH THE FOLLOWING EXCEPTION(S):
• parent/guardian
• OR legal-age spouse

That does not obligate a bar to serve you, as a business reserves the right to refuse service to anyone. However, should the bar choose to do so, there is no violation of the law by you or the bar as long as you are accompanied by a legal-age spouse.
