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.

The moment you walk into the Avenue Pub, you feel like you are home and the bartenders treat you like a regular from the very first visit. The tap wall is really outstanding, they have regionals (with all the NOLAís), unique interesting american micros, and impressive imports. And the taps rotate so often, you always find something to get you excited. The bottle list is also fantastic- from Cantillon, 3 Fontenien, Special release locals, Fantome, Loverbeer, and more . The food can really be quite surprising, gourmet seems to be the best way to describe it, and never boring. The feel of the Avenue is amazing, sitting with a guy on the right drinking a Pabst and a guy on you left with a Cantillon- everybody is still equal and you are all having a great time. the owner Polly is a class act and cares about every aspect of giving the customer the best craft beer experience! I wish this was my local bar, and it is easily in the top 5 bars in the US! .. and they were one of only 21 bars in the world to get 2011 Zwanze, that just shows you how amazing this place is!

I visited Avenue Pub for lunch, knowing it was a highly-rated pub with a reputation for having an excellent selection. In fact the selection is excellent, with top-drawer regional and national beers well-represented along with a few international craft ales. The bartender was very helpful and knowledgeable, in addition to being quick and friendly. So far so good. Food was decent, no complaints there. Prices are also good for NOLA, which I found to be a pretty expensive city overall. BUT, smoking is rampant and I honestly had a hard time tasting what was probably outstanding beers. This hurt the ambience, which otherwise is almost dive bar - something I appreciate. I like a public house to be comfortable, and this one is. Other than the smoking :\

A friend of mine recommended Avenue Pub to us, and I am very glad he did. We found a great place to cool our heels that is away from the amusement park silliness of Bourbon Street.
The beer selection is one of the most interesting I have ever seen. They seek out and get beers that you will find in only a few other places in the country, and they look to have a well-balanced variety available. They also concentrate on local micros, which is admirable in itself. So, yeah, your chances of finding your favorite beer on tap might be pretty slim. However, your chances of finding something new, interesting, and enjoyable are virtually 100%.
They really care about quality, too. We watched the bar manager spend about 45 minutes, making sure the newly tapped kegs were pouring properly (there was one particularly difficult one). I donít think Iíve ever seen that, anywhere else. When one of those kegs disappointed Polly, the owner, she pulled it off. (Itís a good thing it was not the difficult one.)
The downstairs is a bit rough, ambiance-wise, but in a very comfortable sort of way. Hey, welcome to New Orleans. The upstairs is almost like an entirely different place, when an altogether different (and smaller) selection. Thatís pretty cool.
We only tried a little bit of the food. Their cheeses are top quality. The "Dumptruck Fries" will make you stand up and applaud. Everything else we saw looked fantastic, but we could only eat so much.
Polly and the folks that work there were just the best. They made us feel right at home. I could have been at my local. Polly made sure we did not miss the best bottle shop in the city (Steinís Market), and Shelley made sure we did not miss a few other great experiences (such as Cochon Butcher).

Honestly, why is this #2 in the world? The website reports 47 taps, but about 10 had no beer. The bottle list has some rare offerings. I love states that allow smoking in bars, but the smoke in this place is prohibitive to enjoying the beer. This may be a diamond in the rough for this area, but I donít think it deserves the hype. The best thing about this place is the emphasis on local food.

Thank GOD for Avenue Pub. If you are anywhere near NOLA - make this a destination! Fantastic selection, enthusiastic staff, comfortable setup.
Itís a canít miss in a city with a lot of bars and not a lot of quality beer.
Prices are great too.

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.

Avenue pub saved me from the chaos of mardi gras.
Wonderful selection unlike anything else in new Orleans.
Cool people, great vibe and California style beer beer bar in the middle of all this mayhem.
I cannot give this place a higher recommendation.

December 2010. Without a doubt the premier beer destination in NO. Just a short drive or a trolley ride from the heart of the touristy areas, the Avenue Pub was a warm and welcoming respite on a cold day. Owner Holly can talk beer with the best of them. The food was fresh and delicious, although it did seem to take a long time to come out on an empty afternoon. Would definitely return -- some hard-to-find gems in a glass can certainly be discovered here! (Also, visit NOLA Brewing just a few blocks away!)
