This place is my new favorite bar in New Orleans. It was the first time for everyone in our party, and we all fell in love with the room and the late mid-century decor. This place feels old-school, maybe just post "Madmen" era, without feeling...More

Quaint old time New Orleans house converted to a bar. Seemed to be a lot of locals, not tourists, which is a good indicator. But, wow just a little pricy.

Had a couple of drinks and food here while staying nearby for a conference. Barman CJ helped us out with a custom list of his own recommended places to eat and drink during our stay and also provided taste of the local spirits. Highly recommended...More

At the suggestion of a local shop keeper we stopped in at Bouligny Tavern for happy hour and ended up staying for far longer. The staff, the venue, the food and the vinyl all made for an exceptionally welcoming evening. CJ was such a great...More

We were taken to this place by a local who promised a good time and she was right! This was a nice, chill bar where you could sit down with friends and actually have a conversation. The vibe is very lush and sophisticated without being...More

This is a very welcoming and wonderful place. Attentive, genuinely friendly staff. Decor is low key and elegant. I strongly recommend the deviled eggs, the frites, the Brussels sprouts and the Gouda beignets. The wine list is extensive and thoughtful. Although I didn't try any...More

Bouligny Tavern (Garden District) – It’s owned by the same folks as the French restaurant next door. In contrast to Bourbon Street and the noise downtown, this is a small, sophisticated lounge with nice lighting, good drinks and a tasteful small plates menu. We tried...More

Enjoy some of the best drinks paired with amazing food. Don't miss the small plates and great service. This is a place to visit if your coming to New Orleans. Very much an upscale neighborhood location. Very charming and great music to top it off.

If I understand correctly, this is run by the same folks who operate Lilette (which is a great restaurant), and it reflects a similar attention to easy-going but classy detail. The drinks and wine list are superb, but the surprise is the quality of the...More
