We stopped in here after another New Year's Eve party was kind of dull and we were happy to find a good crowd, a good beer selection and generous seating. This is more a sports bar than an Irish pub, but the folks are really friendly and they have some of my favorite beers on tap, so I was happy.... More

When we stopped in, I happened to have on my Guinness sweatshirt from St James Gate in Dublin - however that got me a handshake, not a free beer. We stopped in to listen to the music and just enjoy the atmosphere. Great place.

I like to visit the haunted bars, but as far as I can tell, their are only made up tales to draw a crowd. There is nothing note worthy about it with a tired clown behind the bar.

I stopped in here a few times walking from my hotel to restaurants, the bartender was very efficient and the Guinness well poured. There were an interesting collection of patrons during my visits who provided entertainment in addition to the TV and Stout. It's a nice spot and I will be back.

Would recommend. Small, but quaint. Typically Irish Pub look and feel. Friendly staff and clientele. If you're expecting a club scene, this is not the place. :)

Spent a couple of hours here. The bartender was very pleasant to chat with and lots of local information for us. They do not serve any food but again the bartender had many recomendations of places in the area. Great place for a beer, conversation and to watch a ball game.

So i'm 40 now, and time is starting to accelarate. I spent many, many wonderful times at this establishment, and really miss it. From walking in, and Jessica, Nick and several other great bartenders greeting you with a pint, to watching the Saints play on a Sunday afternoon, getting ready for a concert at the arena, or hanging out with...

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
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 Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
