All the decor of an old NOLA house, complete with cool porch and funky bathroom upstairs. Service was great, attentive even if they seemed a little flustered. The best beer selection in New Orleans, and probably get some of the rarest stuff in the southeast. Did not try the food, too many other good options in town. Definitely a must stop in town.

While on a recent trip to New Orleans I stopped by the Avenue Pub. I was in the area checking out the Garden District, some local cemeteries and NOLA Brewing Company and heard this was the best beer bar in New Orleans. What I had heard was absolutely correct! I started off with a Stone Ruination to quench my hop-headed thirst after having walked from the French Quarter to the Avenue. It was poured into a freshly spritzed pint glass and was clean, fresh and delicious. I talked beer lightly with the bartender and ordered a fish sandwich. When my food came out, it wasnít just a fish sandwich... It tasted like smoked halibut with swiss (from what I remember). Regardless, when I was expecting a fish sandwich and I got this I was very pleased. I ordered a Peche Mortel and they had that on tap too... This was slowly becoming paradise... I began talking with a woman at the end of the bar: great beer geek talk! She started telling the bartkeep to let me try various offerings and it ended up being the owner, Polly. She was super friendly (in the typical New Orleans fashion) but was also the most knowledgeable bar owner I had ever met. The Avenue is truly a great place for any beer geek and is devoid of the hipster and snobbery feel of many beer bars (see The Map Room in Chicago if you need an example). The atmosphere is relaxed, the beer is fantastic and the people could easily become your best friends. One should be prepared to pay a little more than expected for this great beer though; but if youíre wanting the best and freshest beers out on the market today then you were prepared for that anyways, right? :)

The owner, Polly, really cares about trying to supply the exotics(locally and abroad). Visited multiple times while in New Orleans.

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.

I really canít say enough good things about the Avenue. We live in the Baton Rouge area, but itís impossible to avoid making a stop at the Avenue if weíre in the NOLA area. The downstairs selection alone is enough to make it the best beer bar in Louisiana, but combine the balcony bar and special events, and itís tops on the Gulf Coast and competitive in the US. Only 22 places in the US selected to host Zwanze day events, and the Pub was one of them. Granted, that day had some hiccups due to the overwhelmingly large crowd, but the Pub is still tops in my book.

Likely the best beer bar in NOLA. A very solid tap selection with some hard to get beers. The place is a old house and it does have sort of a frat house feel. The food was really good. I would highly recommend this place. The only complaint is that you have to go to the bar to get your own beer and place your food order with the kitchen directly. Iíd like to see them have a few waitresses but itís still a great place.

Iíd heard about The Avenue Pub for a while and finally went to check it out. I was happily impressed. I told my wife that it was the only bar I could see myself being a regular at. The food is so far above the norm for a bar that I think it should be called The Avenue Pub & Restaurant. The brews available overwhelmed my brain for a bit on my second visit and I couldnít decide so I asked for a suggestion based on what I had been drinking. The bartender and a couple of "beer geeks" at the other end of the bar suggested a brew and were dead on. Not to be missed!

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).
