Stopped on Saturday afternoon for a drink---ordered the $12 specialty old-fashioned. If you are going to serve an old-fashioned, you need to use an old-fashioned glass, not a DOUBLE old-fashioned glass. Without any stirrer, cocktail napkin or any flourish whatsoever this drink came off as...More

My husband stopped in on a late, rainy afternoon for a drink and ended up staying for a couple hours. All of the small plates were outstanding, particularly the lobster cavatelli and lobster toast. They have a great Happy Hour. I particularly liked their original...More

Excellent selection of wines, cocktails, and bites. Menu was varied but limited, in the best possible way. Turntable behind the bar and mad-men vibe were a fun start to our night on Magazine- love the lower garden district!

Great little tavern/bar. Interesting cocktail selection, very innovative. Good wine list by the glass, and a really intriguing list of snacks and appetizers like beef marrow butter brioche tye or roasted fennel ricotta brioche tye. Also nice cheeses and salamis

Really fun date spot. The drinks and service are always great. I highly recommend. The deviled eggs are well worth the trip alone. I would also say the wine list is a little more eclectic, but everything is really good.

Small, nicely decorated restaurant/bar in a quiet Magazine St. area, upscale in menu and price. But if you don't have a big appetite, you can have an excellent meal at a very reasonable price. The grilled cheese sandwich with mortadella and apple butter and the...More

I miss my evenings out in my old hometown of Chicago, and thought that I couldn't find the same feel in my new NOLA home. Bouligny Tavern more than fits my need of urban sophistication and great cocktails with a cool vibe, inside and on...More

Head to the Garden District for the full-on New
Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking
streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions,
picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded
down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful
churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a
brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the
Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give
