I hit it up when I was there in october. The beer selection was good And the atmosphere was laid back. The bartend was great to chat with and I met a local I chatted with over a few pints.

I was there in July, their beer selection has greatly improved over the years, but I would have to guess that 80% of their volume is BMC. The mini tacos are really good too.

This was the exact thread I was looking for. I am headed to New Orleans next week and I always look to find cool bars and/or breweries to go to... Maybe relocating there in the next few months, so this is my opportunity to check the city out.

The Barley Oak in Mandeville (Northshore).

They always get a few special beers in to try out, usually only a keg.
They have pretty good food as well.

The owner is opening up his own brewery within the next year or so.

In addition to Avenue Pub, I'm going to throw out Cooter Browns. I always find a pretty good selection there.

My top three favorite places in New Orleans, and the reason why:

Coops Place : Food and atmosphere. This is always my first stop whenever I go down there. Last time we were there, we sat next to a cajun couple speaking french and it immediately got us into a New Orleans type mood right away.

Bulldog : Able to bring seafood over from The Big Fisherman across the street and eat fresh crawfish/shrimp/oysters while having a big selection of beers to choose from. Granted not the best beers, but able to find a nice beer or two to sip on while we hang outside in the beer garden.

LaFitte's: Forget Pat O'Briens.... the best Hurricane hands down is served right here! Plus, there is nothing cooler than sitting in candlelight, with your wife and a fire lit right beside you and thinking about the history of that place. Just really liked LaFitte's... just a very chill place.
