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!)

A nice walk (about a mile?) or trolley ride from the French Quarter, the Avenue Pub is an excellent place to stop. Open 24 hours, it is located in an old house with an extensive bar downstairs and a more limited bar upstairs. Seating seemed limited both upstairs and downstairs; we found some open tables on the balcony. The bartender was quick, friendly, and the selection of draft beers is what you are expecting (and why you came here). Cheers!

THE stop for beer in NOLA. Old tavern ambiance. Great draft & bottle selection. Nice belgian selection in both bottle & draft. 3 de rankes on tap. Bartender was great & personable. Got to drink a beerwith the NOLA brewing crew to boot. Must stop in New Orleans. Just a $1.35 trolly ride from the French Quarter

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!
