Whenever I go to Frenchmen street for some jazz music I seem to end up at DBA. Itís the only establishment remotely resembling a beer bar in the area. There are 30+ taps featuring mostly domestics (plenty of locals too) and a ton of bottles, which unfortunately are also domestics. Itís a bit pricey but so is everything on Frenchmen. If youíre looking for a good live act and good beer though, this is your best/only bet in the French Quarter/Frenchmen area.

Comments: Frenchmen St is probably the best place to go out in New Orleans, and the music is legit. There are about 10 or so worthy bars on the tiny street, but only d.b.a. really has craft beer. The selection is decent, good enough to keep a beer lover happy if already on Frenchmen St. But it isnít good enough to go here for beer on its own. Only about 6 local taps from Nola, Parish, Abita and the rest is easy to find craft and macro-esque German and Belgian beers. So in short, come here for the music and ambiance instead of for the beer.

Pretty nice little bar on Frenchman Street just outside of the French Quarter. Parking was not hard at 5:00 on a weekday but I could see it being a challenge on a Saturday night. The building didnít look like much from the outside but inside was nice. The bartender was definitely into the craft beer scene.

Visited February 18, 2014.
This is a pretty nice place on Frenchmen St which is way more fun (in my opinion) than Bourbon St. Where as on Bourbon St. you get a bunch of drunken garbage stumbling around and throwing beads, here you get live music at pretty much every stop. And DBA has good beer. In fact they have a lot of beer. So glad I got to visit this place. Iím opposed to cover charges in principle but I paid the $5 and enjoyed the band and some drinks.
On the subject of drinks they have about 20 taps flowing with about half of that being local beers. Naturally they have NOLA and Abita but they also had some Tin Roof, Bayou Teche, and Parish beers. Then there were some national brands like Stone and Brooklyn. For imports they had Chimay, Lindemans, Paulaner, Hoegaarden, and some crap like Harp. I also took the opportunity to tick some grappa and some calvados. The grappa was straight garbage. The calvados wasnít good either but in comparison to the grappa it was great. Both were washed down by my Chimay Blue in the bottle. They have a large amount of import bottles listed on the chalk boards above the bar. They also have a separate menu for "microbrew cans".
Pretty sure these guys donít serve food. The service was surprisingly friendly despite how full the place was. The bartender gave me some confused looks when I started ordering grappa and calvados. Calling them "old people drinks". I had a good time here and wouldnít hesitate to stop back in if I ever make it back to New Orleans.

I love this place. In some ways it has the same vibe as the Anyc location, but offers so much more. The beer selection is very good worth good local choices. The best part is that itís right on Frenchman St and features great live music in addition to the beer. For a city full of amazing drinking/music locations, this one just feels that much better.

Now this is a neighborhood beer bar! Off the French Quarter enough to avoid the foot traffic. The bar is long and the whole area is a shotgun style. Wood siding and a faux marble, shalaqued bar make this place have the quaintness and endearingness that warms ones soul. Service is great. Prices are more than fair. A must stop in NOLA.

Pretty much everything said about the bar and the location. And I donít disagree. Visited the pub Thursday afternoon and it was almost empty. Decent selection of local brews on taps. I would visit again...

Decent bar for the French Quarter. There is live music here - I believe there is a 7pm show which is free, and then a 10pm show which has a cover. They have a few local options here - Bayou Teche, NOLA, and Parish. They also have a decent wine selection and cocktails too. Overall, a must stop if you want to avoid the super touristy area of the French Quarter, want to listen to live music, and enjoy good craft beer!

Great music venue with a very good selection of beer, nothing special, but plenty to choose from, John Boutte was playing there so it was a $10 cover, well worth the money and had a night to remember!

Frenchmen St. is an awesome experience and this is a great bar that happens to have a pretty respectable beer selection. Great music venue too. Not quite the beer destination that Avenue Pub is, but just as fun. No real rarities but a good selection of local beers, and the bigger imports, us regionals, etc.
