Great bar on the edge of the Quarter. Excellent Bartender, good atmosphere. The Black Penny has different vibe than many of the other watering holes in the Quarter.

I live in Portland Oregon so I can be a bit of a beer snob. This place was impressive! Many options to choose from and even ciders. I love sour beers and they had a good selection of those which can be hard to find....More

Came to the Brass Penny on the recommendation of a local resident. It is probably the neighborhood Cheers but I was disappointed by the beer selection and the overall vibe. It is listed as a Dive Bar and that is EXACTLY what it is.

They have one of, if not the largest beer lists in NOLA. Super friendly bartenders and good location on Rampart Street in the French Quarter. They often have pop up food events as well. Dog friendly.

We stopped in to kill part of an hour and enjoyed ourselves. The bartender was nice and skilled. We got into conversation with a regular that worked to fill the time nicely. I like the relaxed, dog friendly atmosphere.

Comfortable corner pub - visited on Christmas Day and enjoyed several of their extensive collection of canned beers and had some of the food that was put out for the customers - delicious! Friendly staff.

I read about this place on some of the top beer bars in New Orleans list but must say I was disappointed as a beer lover. They have a niche of only canned beers but at $5-6 each the price is really steep. Almost every...More

I get a little sketched out to venture to Rampart at night, but this was a day visit to hit up Meauxbar for brunch. I found a bustling, cool Rampart scene full of action. I guess I've been missing that all these trips. We had...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
