Literally had to sit and figure out the last time I was here. It ends up that it was somewhere around 1993 when I went to Loyola! It was (and still is) a huge college hangout, as Tulane, Loyola and other universities are nearby and...More

Came here twice on our visit to New Orleans and enjoyed both times. A very local bar and eatery, it is a “grownup” escape from Bourbon Street! Enjoyed the Muffaletta and fried pickles. Bar atmosphere is enjoyable and Joseph is a welcoming and friendly bartender.

Our Air BnB was literally a few feet around the corner from this spot. It was a perfect start to our weekend. A lot of fried food to soak up the drinks and the oysters were big and fresh. A quick walk across the tracks...More

Take the St. Charles Ave. Streetcar (which is itself an iconic must-do in New Orleans) far away from the French Quarter to this neighborhood place. Get off at the Carrollton Ave. turn. The two bars have a bazillion beers on tap, tv's, pool table, and...More

Great sports bar with huge TV wall and smaller screens placed throughout the venue, perfect for a Saturday afternoon with lots of good games on. The beer selection is way above average, the back bar has the most variety and is synced with Untappd. We...More

Ate here almost a decade ago but I remember it being good stuff. Went with a couple locals that recommended it. Its a little outside of the main area of NOLA but worth it. Po Boy is always recommended.

Went here to wait while my wife was shopping. It was very crowded and noisy place on a Saturday afternoon. Lots of space though. Two bars. Quite limited selection of local beers. Not my favourite.

The folks at Cooter Brown's did a great job putting together their sandwiches. Simple and fresh, just the way it should be. While you are there take a walk up on the Levy, just outside the tavern.

It's been awhile since I've been here. Menu changed and the food definitely is not what it use to be. I ordered extra blue cheese for my ok wings and it was watered down so bad it wouldn't stick. Very sad used to love the...More

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
