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.

Okay. This is a neighborhood bar. But what a great neighborhood. Never closes. Good to great selection of beers, constantly rotating tap selection. Service is better than good if not great. Upstairs is very nice especially if you like Belgians or even if you do not. I have never eaten here, but have always been told it is good bar food. Restrooms are an experience but are serviceable.
This is the one place we look forward to going to every time we are in NOLA.
