I've had the pleasure to visit some really great beer bars and this one sits right at the top. Unfortunately, New Orleans has a developing craft beer scene which may cause TAP to get looked over when it should be in competition with places like HopCat, Ashley's, etc.

Atmosphere is to be expected in New Orleans, very vintage and grungy feel. The bar is rather narrow which allows you to easily carry conversations with the bar staff. Didn't get a chance to catch the upstairs while I was there.

Service is best I've experienced. Staff was very knowledgeable about not only beer types but the actually breweries themselves. Learned a bunch about Mikeller and Evil Twin.

Selection was unbelievable. Very rare beers on tap and their bottle selection is second to none. Picked up a bottle of Black Ops and I. Biscotti Break.

Food was traditional southern homestyle. I had an order of fries smothered in some type of tracy and brisket. Good but felt like I shaved a few days of my life at its expense.

Also, love the fact that they allow you to take beers to go in NOLA....as in plastic cups out the door! Walked around while sipping on a Peche Mortel.

Best place in NOLA to find a variety of well crafted beer. Whiskey/Scotch selection is a bonus.

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.
