This place is amazing. Easily one of the best beer bars Iíve ever been in. Great selection (two different bars, with different offerings) and a comfortable location inside a large house. Well worth the trip to NOLA.

First off, you should know the Avenue Pub is THE place to see parades at Mardi Gras. Its location doesnít have the family concentration seen at the beginning of the routes, so thereís a decidedly adult atmosphere. That said, this place, even when packed, has all the right stuff. Itís no snobby beer bar, either. The staff is extremely knowledgeable in the brews, especially the selections on tap. They rotate through seasonal flavors, sometimes with unfiltered choices. Thereís an above-average liquor selection as well, should you want that beer as a chaser. Or vice versa. The bar food speaks for itself (cheese fries!). Itís pretty much a 24 hour operation, too, so youíre never late. Youíre never underdressed either, as this is the most casual of joints.

Visited on New Yearís eve on our trip to New Orleans. Old school pub like environment with a downstairs bar with over 40 taps, seats outside, upstairs bar with 9 taps and a patio. Sat at the bar and had great selection to choose from. Once you start a tab you could get a beer from the bottom or upstairs bar. The staff was very knowledgeable and fun to talk with during our 3 hours there. A great list that was accurate and up to date. The bottle list was pretty good and not overpriced for some the more rare bottles. The food looked good but we didnít try so donít want to rate it here. The prices were great and overall a great beer destination in New Orleans. A must visit beer bar. Cheers!

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.

Absolutely love this place. Great atmosphere even though it is occasionally frequented by many BMC and liquor drinkers, with great service. Itís a 24 hour a day bar so sure you might get attitude sometimes but itís a pub and the service is a hell of a lot better than anywhere else in town. Clean up after yourselves itís not that hard! Great selection, occasiona; rarities and the best Cantillon selection around. Food is phenomenal even by New Orleans standards. Often adventurous with classic favorites, every selection on the menu lives up your expectations. Fried Red Beans and rice wantons to Grilled Cheese, not your conventional grilled cheese by the way, are all awesome. Pretty average prices. Overall, this is the only bat for any beer aficionado in New Orleans or visiting the city.

IF you visit New Orleans donít go to the French Quarter looking for a beer bar. Turn around 180 degrees and make your way here. It may look a bit like a dive bar but the tap list, food, and atmosphere make this one of the best places Iíve ever been.

For the sampler you can pay by the ounce which means even if you get flights your final tab will be less than two drinks on Bourbon Street. If you want full pours the servers will give you generous 16 ounce pours in most cases. Either way the bang for the buck is second to none and thatís not even during Happy Hour when beers are $2.00 off.

Finally the food - I did not have high expectations but my meal may have been one of the best affordable options in town. Between the burgers, appetizers, and other options there is something for everyone. This is not a place to miss if you are in New Orleans.

Great place. Discovered it a few months back and go there with friends. Everyone loves it. Some of the beer is very well looked after indeed. Range is excellent.

Avenue Pub was not on the beer map last time I was in New Orleans, a few months before Katrina. At that time, the City was a veritable beer wasteland outside of d.b.a. What a wonderful addition to the City and more specifically to the beer scenes of both New Orleans and of the South in general. A $1.25 street car ride from the edge of the French Quarter (Canal & St. Charles), AP has several different areas depending upon your mood: a more standard downstairs bar, an outdoor patio, an upstairs bar, and an outdoor upstairs balcony. What sets AP above other beer bars is the breadth and uniqueness of its selection and the fact that the tap selection is continually turning over almost completely. On this visit upstairs was a selection of 5 different Brooklyn Brewing beers, an aged Old Rasputin, and a newly tapped cask (tapped special because my group promised theyíd put a dent in it!) of Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale. Polly, the owner, clearly has a high standard for whatís sheís willing to put on tap at Avenue Pub and it shows in the quality of the selection. I didnít have a chance to have any food, but all my buddies did. They and others I spoke to said the food is very good. As others have said, a truly canít miss place when anywhere near New Orleans!

A short trolley ride from where we were staying. Multiple levels, tons of bottles and a great selection on draft. After choosing a pint we moved onto the balcony for a relaxing evening on the upper deck. Will definitely go back.
