Since we have yet to find THE perfect NOLA bar (criteria being: ultra cheap drinks, pool table, juke box, proximity to other good bars), I’ve compiled several potential candidates and linked reviews/pictures. Here goez nothinzzzzz:
Half Moon: location – garden district
This is the only one I’ve actually been to. It’s really big on the inside, has pool tables, darts, and supposedly great bar food. $2 happy hour mixed drinks. Tuesday $2 drafts (including abita, blue moon, etc.). Not crowded.
Ms. Mae’s: location – garden district; magazine
I think I’m excited the most about this one. It’s $1 well drinks!!!!!
Pool tables, the bartenders sound legit, looks like kind of a hipster crowd but I’m ok with that. Seems like the penultimate dive bar.
Dragon’s Den: location – Frenchman
OK I lied. We’ve been here too. BUT, if you remember there were really cheap drinks and it’s close to Sidney’s. Maybe we can catch a shitty local band.
Mayfair Lounge: location – garden district
Seems really legit. You have to ring a bell to get in, which is strange. They only have one beer on draft: Natural. Very classy. Looks like it has ultra cheap pitchers. Pool tables.
Circle Bar: location – garden district; walking distance to frenchman
Looks like another cheap hipster bar. Worth a look.
Bruno’s: location – garden district
Tuesdays $2 everything (bottles, calls). Wednesdays $2 calls, $1.50 wells until midnight. Sundays $2 pints until midnight.
