This place looks very misleading. It looked like a little "hole-in-the wall" joint, but when you opened the door, the music was intoxicating!! The band that played was awesome! And everyone there was there for the music. It was fantastic!

This bar has a great Happy Hour, with an incredible bar staff that are always friendly and service oriented. If you're at a Convention, or staying at one of the hotels in the Warehouse District, this is the place to unwind after a long day of seminars, or on your way back to your hotel for a night cap.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
