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).

Fantastic selection and really cool folks. Love the patio! Watch the trolleys roll by and the ladies jog up the track.
Not too far from Cooter Browns or The Bulldog either.

Great place for a beer in New Orleans, selection is top notch and the food is amazing, especially the "Fries to die for." The place is a little run down but it adds character. I will definitely go here every time Iím in New Orleans.

Visited in April. Sorry I missed this place on 3 previous convention stops. Although it has apparently been open many years, perhaps there is only a relatively new owner/management team now devoted to US craft, local and rarer European beers. I believe that you would have to travel as far as Dallas or Atlanta to find a place that could even compete with the beer selection on tap and in bottles here. If they could just find a door closing mechanism for the upstairs patio that didnit slam so hard!
