Went on a Thursday about 5PM, no crowd what so ever so the service was excellent. The tap selection was almost overwhelming, but had the highest quality draft and bottle list I've seen in my 5 visits to New Orleans. The place divey inside. I did not venture to the balcony which seemed like a popular choice. I was able to sample 4 different NOLA brewing beers, which is a nice change of pace from Abita. Also had my first ever drafts of Evil Twin. The beer fridge had large and small format bottles. Excellent selection of sours, had Brooklyn Black Ops, Life & Limb amongst others. Best selection by far in New Orelans, not in the Quarter with all the tourist drunks, a must stop for any beer fan.

"Divey" is the wrong word. So many places try too hard for divey but this place is homey in a more genuine way than so much of the more touristy section on nola. Beer selection is not the best I've ever seen anywhere but pretty respectable, including sours on draft (mucho bonus points for me) and again, the other places nearby are pretty limited. Food is a mixed bag; less pretentiously French/creole but high quality for what there is. Will definitely be back.

Amazing place. Divey, yet one of the best draft lists in Nola.
I had an Italian sour there. An Italian sour that was one of the best I had ever had, at a dive bar.
I went to a couple beer bars and this was by far the best in Nola. If I didn't have to leave, I would of stayed there all day.
