NEIGHBORHOOD BARS

  • Ernst Café – Built in 1851, the building’s exterior has preserved its pre-civil war architecture and was established as a saloon since 1902.  You’ll find modern bar food, NOLA favorites and a full service bar.
  • Manning’s – It’s Archie Manning’s place, the famed New Orleans Saints quarterback and father of Peyton and Eli.

  • Walk-On’s Bistreaux & Bar – 2 college athletes meet as walk-ons with the LSU basketball team. After graduating, they took the concept of work hard, play hard and opened a sports bar in the shadow of their alma mater. A made-in-Louisiana success story which serves stuff like Cajundillas, VooDoo Shrimp and Bayou Pasta with Bloody Mary’s and Moonshine cocktails.
  • Dave & Buster’s – Yeah, it’s the national chain, but you can watch the game while you play games! Or at least the kids play games while you watch the game?  Burgers, wings, salads, full meals and a selection of 2 dozen beers.
  • Small Neighborhood Bars just around the corner from our hotel – wxyz lounge, Cajun Mike’s Pub n’ Grub, Tacklebox, Hobknobbers
  • Bourbon Street Bars – Especially if you’re visiting, you’ll likely find your team’s tribe hanging at one of the Bourbon Street bars.  Stroll on down, peek inside and pick your favorite perch from mellow old-timer bars like Johnny Whites or the lively Beach on Bourbon with its bar within a bar. It’s all about the beer, daiquiris, to-go souvenir cups and cheering – lots of cheering on Bourbon Street
