We brought about 50-60 people for a 2 hour event and everyone loved it. Great selection of wine, beer for those that prefer it, and even a spicy rum. The cheese, nuts, and charcuterie were also quite good and the staff stayed on top of...More

I keep describing WINO as wine arcade. You get a card like you would at an arcade and use it to swipe to try each wine. I liked that you could choose from a sample, half glass of full glass. All prices were displayed so...More

We love wine and spent an hour here just trying some of our favorite types. Many were ready to pour, and only maybe 5% were completely tapped out and not replaced by management. Usually in these places, you pick up your glass and start investigating,...More

If you want to get away from the New Orleans normal vibe, and want wine, this is the place to go. Where else can you sample wine for as cheap as $1.50. Nobody bothers you, you can take your time and select from a good...More

Where else can you try Hermitage and Grange without dropping $$$$$$. The staff were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. Wish NYC had a place like this!

Thanks so much for the post! We pack a lot of wine in our tiny space, there's always something new and fun to try. See you on your next visit to New Orleans!

I love this place because you can sample a different variety of wines. It's self serve and the machines are rather neat! You can select the amount you'd like per taste. However, it can add up quickly, however it's worth it.

Firstly, let me say I only stumbled upon this place whilst riding my bike down Tchoupitoulas. Upon investigation, turns out, this is NOT an institute of higher learning, but a concept BAR, a purveyor of alcoholic beverages to the 'unsuspecting'. Wines, spirits, and intoxicating beverages....More

Love this concept. Self serve, pour your own tasting and/or glass. Definately easy to spend a lot of money here but got to taste a lot of different wines!

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
