I came to this spot wanting to see the Soul Rebels and they did not disappoint. If you're in the area on a Thursday night, be sure to stop by. Also, the drinks are very reasonably priced which made the night even greater.

Every Friday @ 7pm they offer free oysters and piano bar. Their Happy Hour must be really happy, it runs from 11am until 8pm. Games, pool and gambling in a large high ceiling room. Nice beer selection.

Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the
students living in the area ensure that Uptown and
Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly
fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife
