Although this place isn't named as a saloon, it really is what it is. The staff here know their stuff and are super friendly. There is great beer from around the world. I sat here for hours, just enjoying lots of beer, reading my book and talking to the bar tenders. Also the mushroom tempora was absolutely incredible. Such a... More

Read this was the best beer bar in New Orleans. Great tap menu + a fantastic cellar/bottle menu made for difficult choices. Went there twice while on vacation. Locals indicated the sign open 24/7 was true. Heard they had to close on order of authority after Katrina. Staff knew beer and gave great advice on other places to go.

One of few places in the area for craft brews, but the service is quirky and you should plan on self service for food and the bar.

Thank you for the review! As you discovered we do not offer table service. That said, I hope you didn't wait too long before a bartender spotted you and let you know just to come up to the bar or kitchen counter to place your order. We always try to be on the lookout for new customers that might not... More

Well, we arrived in New Orleans around 11am, checked in and asked the front desk where can we have lunch. They gave us a name of a "popular" place that turned out to be a disaster. We had to leave after 40 min of waiting. So we walked across the street to the Union bar. The place looked like a... More

Serve yourself is the theme of this establishment. Go to the bar and get it if you want a drink and go to the kitchen if you want some food. After you order and pay for your food you get a number for your table and they bring you the food. Now, the beer selection is just crazy with the... More

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....

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.
