Visited the Avenue Pub based on Beeradvocate reviews when work took me to New Orleans this week. When we first arrived, the after-work crowd was still there, and it was nearly impossible to get a beer w/ only two bartenders. So, we went and got dinner somewhere else first. Came back, and the place was busy, but much more sane. The Avenue Pub seems to cater to good quality American craft beers. I did try a rare Belgian dubbel they had on draft, but everything else was American. They had around 45 beers on draft, and many more in a bottle. I talked w/ the bartenders who were extremely busy, but very friendly and were willing to chat about beer w/ me for a few moments. They seemed to enjoy that I was so impressed w/ their selection, and that I had come there because of reviews on this website. If you're in New Orleans, I highly recommend The Avenue Pub. You won't find a better beer selection in New Orleans.

Great selection of draft and bottles. I've been traveling around the US and have been looking for any type of de Struise beer for awhile (either bottle or tap)--they had Weltmerz on tap. Definitely a world class beer list.
I went on a Friday night around 9:30 PM. Place was busy, but not packed. Service upstairs was slow and impersonal. Downstairs service was better. Nice that they could keep my tab at both bars. I went for the beer list, not the service, but would have been nice if the bar staff demonstrated an interest in what they had available.
Atmosphere was what you would expect from an older NOLA bar (i.e., older building, creaky stairwell, mismatch furniture, low light, etc.). Crowd the night I went was mostly college-educated late 20's, early 30's. Was able to easily find a place to sit with my wife.
Did not try the food.
