“A welcome respite”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

Fantastic selection of beer on tap and bottle and knowledgeable staff. Stopped off after a long walk in a very sweaty state. Let them select my beers and I was disappointed. Highly recommended!

“Craft Depot”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

New Orleans certainly sets itself off as a cocktail city, but that leaves craft beer enthusiasts at a loss. The Avenue, however, does not disappoint. With an almost endless beer list, and a no bull attitude, it is easy to let time slip by in this beer haven.

Last bar we visited on our trip. A guy at NOLA Brewing had told us they still had a NOLA/New Belgium collab on draft so we set off the next day to try it.

They serve food, but you HAVE to order it from the kitchen staff. The bartender WILL NOT take your order regardless of how close to the register you are. But they make their fries fresh. Grilled Cheese is pretty good too.

The bar - we were told they did 4oz samples of ANYTHING on the list. I managed to pick out something they only offered in 6oz glasses...told the bartender to bring it on! Pay attention to the menu, some drafts are only available UPSTAIRS!

We sat near the end of the bar towards the bathrooms where it wasn't nearly as busy. Service is slow that far back. You've been warned.

Also, there's a "step up" into the men's room and I can't remember if its posted.

“A favorite pub”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

This has become a must on every visit. Great selection of craft beers (downstairs), and whiskey (upstairs). Food is tasty, which I admit to sharing a plate Dump Truck Fries which helps to slow down alcohol absorption.

“Very nice bar, with great beer choices”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

This is not your cheap dive bar, this is a bar for beer lovers like myself. For New Orleans this a 5 star bar, the place has that old bar feel and has about 100 beers on tap and a few more 100 in bottles, the bartenders are nice, and the bar is set-up like most bars are. The food was very good for bar food and we had a really good experience here. We would most definitely return.
