It was Mardi Gras, and the bar was open 24 hours a day for the week, so understandably it was a little dirty when I went at 2am, and the upstairs was not open. Otherwise, nice old school pub vibe with lots of wood and nothing too cluttered. Service was a little sub par, but again I would imagine they had all been there for a while at that point. I got more knowledge from the cook and a guy sitting next to me than the bartenders. Selection was pretty awesome, a lot of rare stuff and stuff you canít get anywhere else, including a pilsener brewed solely for Avenue Pub (unfortunately I did not get to try it). Food was decent, pub grub with a slightly modern feel, but still greasy and really only good if youíre drunk. Beers were a little pricey, but again probably due to the fact that they could only do 16oz plastic cups during Mardi Gras. Great place to find good beer compared to the rest of New Orleans, though. Definitely want to try and head back again. Update: went for Zwanze day and I could not be more impressed with service and the selection. Awesome place.

Comments: Avenue Pub is a quick trolley ride from the French Quarter area down St Charles St. Itís an unassuming row house with a small sign. Interior is cramped, two stories with a different tap list upstairs. Bourbon and Scotch list was extensive with small pours available. Bottle list included 3F Hommage, but was for sale for $60 I believe. Tap list included Jolly Pumpkin, Magic Rock, Stillwater, and a few other specialties. Tap lines seemed clean. Food looked good. Staff checked on keg freshness for me, pulled out an inventory sheet to make sure a hoppy beer on was fresh. As always in nola, smoking is allowed inside and you can take beer to go as long as it is in a non-glass container. Theyíll give you plastic cups to go. Very fun, not to be missed. Pours ranged from about $6-8.

We visited a weekday evening. Downstairs is smoking, good to know if you like me hate that. Upstairs and balcony is non-smoking. however. Good draft list, good bottle list, but nothing exceptional. Staff was sort of absent-minded, and some of the beer on their bottle list wasnít available.

Sort of dingy looking old two-story house that works as a fun dive bar/ home setup. Outdoor and patio seating available to escape the smoke. They have a really nice selection that pays respect to local beers but has a large tap selection from around the US. Really good prices, attentive staff willing to give samples. Iíd definitely go back.

Old, with a lot of character. Indoor seating with high tops and a bar that stretches the full length of the bar from front to rear. A few TVs. Friendly bar staff. An impressive beer list. Unique pub fare. Upstairs with a balcony and a small downstairs, street-side patio. No smoking in the upstairs bar.

A definate dive like bar, smoking and non smoking with nooks, crannies and outdoor areas. Both times the bartenders have been awesome and I had a great time. Selection is great, with a pretty impressive bottle selection as well. Food is fresh made and pretty decent. Prices are a bit high, but staff is generous. Overall, lots of fun in NOLA.

Stopped by during a recent trip to Louisiana. Awesome bar near the Garden District. Parking is on the street but when we went finding a spot was not an issue. Had a very nice selection of both imports, domestic and local beers. Staff was generally helpful and seemed to know about the beers they were pouring. I had heard a lot about this place and was prepared to be let down, but it lived up to the hype. While there was nothing "rare" on tap, the selection was very good and I had some great beers.

Place rating #1100.

Upon first glance it doesnít look like much but when you either 1) explore the property and see the multiple bars and the neat patio on the roof and in the back or 2) look closer at the tap list youíll see why this place is so highly rated. Also, Iím sure that the general crappiness of the NOLA beer scene makes this place look that much more awesome. They have several dozen taps and will sell 4oz glasses of pretty much everything. They also have a good amount of bottles. On tap I had a glass of the Hill Farmstead / Blaugies saison and it was very nice. Smaller glasses of half a dozen other beers were ordered as well for the sake of trying them. Then upstairs where they have a separate tap list a few more tasters were ordered. The employees were very nice and helpful in picking out beers to try. One of the best was a pale ale of sorts (3% abv I think) from Spain that was good and hoppy. There was a black IPA and a quad mixed in there for good measure. Overall great selection. Not sure Iíd fly out here just for Zwanze day but they have done that event several years now if youíre looking for your Cantillon ticks.
Didnít try any of the food and come to think of it Iím not sure they even serve food, but itís irrelevant as I was enjoying a glass of Blaugies and having a good time. That, and there is a BBQ place a few blocks up St Charles called Voodoo BBQ that I wanted to check out. Turns out that it was kind of lame, but at least now I know better.
Complaints include prices and that while the service was very friendly they were busy talking to regulars and not paying attention to anyone else, not that we werenít served eventually. If I go back to New Orleans some day this will be one of my first stops.

Reel tame spot to boost and chill. Outdoor patio offered (@accepted). Like 40 something solid taps plus large bottle list of lambic brews and the like with small markups. For example tilquin 750 @ 26. Good service. Friendly crowd. Peteable.

So this was an interesting place. Itís in an old traditional NO house with porches all around the upstairs. Looks well broken-in and comfy. Lots of taps downstairs, and a handful of food items. I had the lamb and beef meatball sandwich which was delicious. The beers are varied, with a number of local things, Belgian stuff and others. Downstairs was smoking, though, but ventilation was OK. My first visit was on a Friday night, and the only open barstool was at the second bar in the rear. It took me a while to figure out that you canít order beer or food from that bar, and staff gave me no hints. Upstairs had one firkin and some handpull casks, ranging from Thornbridge Halcyon to Evil Twin Imperial Doughnut. Solid place. Several decent hotels within a couple of blocks, which made the visits much easier.

Some old southern charm for sure. Rustic, a little worn down with some colored glass windows, large copper covered bar, and multilevel/uneven floor. We all love that though, right! Character. Had some rarities available, both on tap and in the bottle. Goodies from Against the Grain, Mikkeller, Evil Twin, etc. With me, itís all about the beer and this pub had some great ones. Food not served until 3pm and the other bar wasnít open until 5pm...had some beers pouring there that I would have loved to try. The bartender was attentive and helpful. Have to make a stop here if in NOLA!
