What can you say about a local icon like the Avenue Pub...other than you agree with all the great reviews and you need to come back as soon as possible with all your friends! Just a really fun place with lots of cool vibes and amazing selections. You will get into conversations here...and they will flow smoothly given the feel of the place...the people it attracts...and the great lubricants provided for your tongue...lol!
We came here on 9.8.2019. This beer bar is located in the garden district. We visited after a Saint’s game in the Super Dome (1.2 miles walking). 2 bars on 2 floors with different beer selection. We enjoyed sitting on the outside terrace. Interesting draft beer selection: not many IPA’s and more Gose and Sours. Huge list of bottled beers, must be in the range of 200-300, a lot of from Belgium and a lot of Farmhouse/Brett Ales. Many are not chilled and you have to give them some notice. Unbelievable this bar is open for 24 hours 7 days a week. Ben would appreciate the opening hours very much !
I don't remember going here when I lived in NOLA from 1998-2000 and was excited to check this place out, but I was underwhelmed. The bartender noticed by my questions that I wasn't a local, and she showed it. Very nice selection, but beers were pricey, especially by NOLA standards. We didn't eat here, so I can't comment on the food. Do yourself a favor and go to The Courtyard instead.
24 hr bar, which is super rare and very welcome for craft-focused beer bars. In a sea of European-style bars opened 4 hours a week, here you have a great selection at any hour. The feel of the place is familiar; dark wood and brick with a divey crowd.
Impressive selection of drafts. The day I visited they had Holy Mountain and Hill Farmstead, as well as a few German rubber-clad gravity kegs with seriously nuts lagers.
Bottle selection leaves something to be desired.
Visited twice while in New Orleans. Dimly lit and a bit run down interior with a second more clean looking bar on the top floor with access to the nice balcony. Very fine tap selection and an extensive bottle list. We mostly stuck to taps for many locals were represented. Half pours available. Friendly personnel, up for a chat or some advice. Some of the visitors can get quite loud. Food is decent but a bit mediocre bar food. Overall a wonderful bar, we enjoyed our time there.
Truly one of the best bars in America. Great vibe, its got a feel that you could hang out there all day. The prices are amazing, best I've seen anywhere and they allow for 4,10, and 16 oz pours. Draft selection balanced between locals and harder to find good beers. The bottle was absurd for stouts, so make sure you check it out.
Lower rating than most. Dive bar which is ok but outside of being old tho didn't really have much charm. There before upstairs open so can't comment. Service ok. Didn't eat there but wouldn't based on my view of kitchen. Bottle list extensive but tap list not long and was ok. Not that impressed
