FQ area bar for Boston visitor to watch Series?

  • 4

I will be a first time visitor to New Orleans this weekend and need recommendations where a diehard Sox fan like myself should go to watch the World Series?? I will be staying at the Sheraton just outside the FQ so any recommendations around that area would be most appreciated. Thanks!

  1. The French Quarter doesn't really have the typical "sports bar" with huge flat screens and all that, but the Old Absinthe House on Bourbon and Bienville is a good place to watch games. They have several screens and usually a pretty good crowd.

    1. Try Johnny White's

      1. Ryan's Pub, corner of Bienville and Decatur, same block as House of Blues. They have a bank of flat screen TVs. Great beer selection. Small, cozy pub atmosphere. Great place for a game.

        Or, if you want to be surrounded by Sox fanatics, take a cab to Markey's Bar in the Bywater, corner of Royal and Louisa streets. Don't walk it, take that cab. Markey's is Boston sports headquarters in New Orleans and a great local bar to boot.

        Go Sox.

          Is Markey's also the best place in New Orleans to see tomorrow's Patriots-Colts game if I want to be around Patriots fans?
