Gutted to have finally made it to this bar after years of wanting to experience it knowing there might be a slim chance of meeting the owner and the bar not meeting expectations. As per previous reviews I have to agree that the blonde bar...More

Music was great. The bartender was a Beeotch and would not let my wife sit on the stools at the bar when the music was starting where we had been sitting and buying drinks for the better part of an hour.

I came to this spot wanting to see the Soul Rebels and they did not disappoint. If you're in the area on a Thursday night, be sure to stop by. Also, the drinks are very reasonably priced which made the night even greater.

Every Friday @ 7pm they offer free oysters and piano bar. Their Happy Hour must be really happy, it runs from 11am until 8pm. Games, pool and gambling in a large high ceiling room. Nice beer selection.

Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the
students living in the area ensure that Uptown and
Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly
fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife
and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s
