Stopped into the Avenue Pub for an afternoon beer after exploring the Garden District. They had a wide selection of local beers for a reasonable price. There was plenty of seating and a the bar was very open concept. You did have to go to the bar yourself to get a beer (which I am accustomed to). I wasn't able... More

Although the place has an amazing beer and spirit selection, the staff were not memorable. The guy at the bar could not recommend or tell us about various brews- kind of disappointing considering the great selection. The place is a little grimy...

Thank you for the review! I'm so happy that you enjoyed our beer list but I'm concerned that you encountered a staff member that couldn't answer your questions about the beers. I'd love to know when you visited so we can do some additional training. thanks so much Polly More

I'm not food expert but I'm a foody! My husband and I were very happy and satisfied with our choices in fact we were even surprised they were excellent! I had chicken confit, chicken preserved in duck fat served over time greens with a tart raspberry concoction and ciabatta toasts OMG almost perfect point amazing flavor and consistency as well....

I came across this place as I looked at the NOLA website for top bars. Although we were staying at the French District I made a point to stop by for a few drinks. I was surprised by the huge selection for not only beer but also whisky and bourbon. The staff is friendly so if you're intimidated by the... More

Not only does Ave Pub have revolving taps, but the owner Polly is always sure to have an abundance of delicious brews in bottles for her patrons to sample. I love the Pub because the bartenders are always super friendly, even if you are a beer novice and you need a little help figuring out what you like. I love... More

I stumble upon this place looking for a place to lunch after walking the garden district for few hours. Did not know anything about this place. Realized quickly that I had to ask for menus at the bar. The bartender explained how it works and got a beer. But the food!! This is where this pace shines. Is pub food... More

If you can get a seat on the balcony, please do. You get a nice view of St. Charles Avenue and the streetcars. The noise from the street is loud, but you don't notice. The upstairs bar doesn't serve food, but you can order it downstairs and have them bring it up. Each floor has a different beer list, but... More

If you can't find a beer you like here, then you just don't like beer, period! They have three pages of beers, including locals, on tap. We had 3 or more beers this visit, I guess I lost count, but it was an enjoyable experience.

This place is an old house on St Charles. The downstairs bar offers at least 40 beers on tap, but they change so you never know. The upstairs bar is where the real good stuff is! Dave behind the bar can tell you some stuff about whiskey. And he's got some good stuff back there. Lots of options for any... More

Staying in Garden District

Neighborhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
