This is kind of a neat little bar with a bunch of beer bottles to pick from but it’s primarily a wine bar. There is a nice patio out front that was relatively full in the evening. It’s a very narrow building with a bar on one side, a couple tables in the front and back, and a lot of windows in the front. I think the patio seats about as many as all the tables and bar stools inside combined. The tap list is small but good (Chimay, a hefe, a porter, a lager, and a few other things, none of which were Abita Amber). The bottle list is the better list. I saw some Green Flash on the list, which was different than most places around New Orleans. I skipped the food in favor of Voodoo BBQ further up St Charles (turned out to be mediocre BBQ). In retrospect The Boz sandwich here would have been the better choice.

This place is surpisingly unique and comfortable. From the outside you don’t expect a ton but once you"re in this is quite a place. The beer selection is above average and the food is fantastic. Might offer the best "bar" food in the city.

Delachaise is right on St Charles st near Louisiana. Very popular with the young professionals, it offers low lighting, couch seating, and has a general air of sophistication about it. As far as drinking beer goes this isn’t the best place. They have a limited selection domestically and the things they offer internationally are exotic and expensive. Instead, they cater more to the wine crowd. They also provide an extensive rum/bourbon/scotch menu if you’re looking for something to sip slow. The food here is a bit expensive, especially for a bar, but very solid. In fact, when it comes to bar food, there’s really only one place better in the city in my opinion (avenue pub). If you’re looking to have a drink or two with a lady and willing to spend a bit more for a more chill and formal atmosphere this is definitely worth looking into.

Delachaise is just around the corner from The Bulldog, making my long walk to this neighborhood worthwhile. Delachaise looks like it is in an old drive-thru restaurant, but like a lot of businesses I’ve been to in New Orleans, looks like it’s on its 8th or 9th incarnation of commerce. It’s bright in here, with a lot of glass. The beer-list was practically identical to what could be found at The Bulldog and d.b.a., and maybe it was because I visited this place last, but I thought it was the least interesting. There was a selection of wine, cognac, whiskey, and scotch. My fatigue with beers available in this city reached a new low here – I didn’t even get a beer here, opting for some high-end bourbon instead. Delachaise had some light food on the menu, and appeared to cater to the wine & cheese crowd more than the beer-geek crowd (right down to a bartender who sounded French). If you are one of those beer aficionado’s who dabble in those other libations as well, then this might be a good fit for you. Flyer and I split a cheese plate which was frankly overpriced for the quantities you were given. Drinks were more expensive than other places I’ve cited as well. If you’re visiting with a non-beer person (wife, girlfriend, etc), then Delachaise might be a good compromise, but if you’re looking for a great beer experience, you would be better served elsewhere.

Much more of a wine and cheese bar (that happens to have a decent craft beer line-up) than a craft beer bar. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.) The atmosphere is very nice, with a kind of casual sophistication, and although the beer menu was very similar to that of d.b.a. and the Bulldog, it was obvious the bartender knew nothing about beer. From the looks of the clientele (sorry for any stereotyping) I’d have to guess the same. Zero beer culture so much so that Beerbelcher ordered a whiskey. Still, for what it is, it’s a very good place, but there is a clear air of pretension, and for a beer-oriented experience, you’re much better off at the nearby Bulldog, and even better off taking the short trip to d.b.a.
