A good place to relax and chill. The location is walking distance from the convention center. The spot does serve food but it’s more on the bar and grille side - probably better options within New Orleans if you’re looking for a full meal. The...More

Strange the open aired bar would stink of grease. I guess the grease hood doesn’t work well. Expensive dive bar. Rudest bartenders I was served by in New Orleans during the week. I usually don’t call out mediocre places, but if bad ..... I will...More
