Vicksburg is a city immersed in a rich historical legacy. But its passion for tradition extends beyond the past. The town has a cocktail culture worth exploring—made easy thanks to Vicksburg’s open-container law. Stroll downtown with a libation as long as a local restaurant labels it. The Daiquiri Hub, the city’s first daiquiri bar, makes to-go simple with a walk-up window. Or perhaps you’d prefer a specialty sip from Cocktails 101 down the street in its plush lounge. Treat yourself to old-world luxury with a carefully crafted drink from the Chandelier Lounge at the Inn at Cedar Grove, an antebellum mansion considered the crown jewel of Vicksburg. Or, make your stay a little sweeter at the Mulberry hotel’s poolside cabana bar before sampling small-batch craft brews from Key City Brewing Company or watching the sun set with a sip at 10 South Rooftop Bar & Grill.
