St Charles Streetcar Bar Hopping?

I'm trying to plan a St Charles street car eating/bar hopping excursion for myself and some friends on an upcoming Sunday afternoon. We have a couple of stops in mind but need more suggestions! What we want to do is hop on and off the St Charles Streetcar to eat/drink. We used to hop off and head over to Uglesich's to eat, but I know it's closed now so I have no idea of a casual place to eat on a Sunday (Commander's Palace would be too fancy- I don't want to wear a dress while doing this!).

So here's what I have so far (and it's not an impressive list). Any help is appreciated!:

1. Circle Bar
2. The Columns
3. Maple Leaf Bar (at the end of the line)

    1. Eat/Drink:
      Cooter Browns
      The Delachaise

      Camellia Grill

      1. The Mayfair
        Superior Grill

        1. This is a cool idea, though I could see myself saying hell with the streetcar and staying put after a few bars. Lucky's, which is on the Lee Circle end of St. Charles, is one of my favorite little holes in the wall. I second Delachaise and Cooter Brown's for food/drink. Carrollton Station is another good one.

            I'm glad someone mentioned The Mayfair and Carrollton Station. If you get off the streetcar to go to the Maple Leaf, Carrollton Station is a few blocks from there. If you want to see some of the best or worse (depending on your tastes) you need to hit The Milan and Snake and Jakes. The Milan is around the on Milan not far from the intersection of Napoleon and St Charles. Snake and Jakes is on Oak (the same street as the Maple Leaf) just in the other direction off of Carrollton, it's 5-6 blocks off Carrollton. They are both late night spots, and by late night I mean they don't get a crowd until 3am, but you will definitely see some interesting people.

                looks like it runs from about 5 a.m. till about midnight


                so you either have to go in early or stay out real late!

          2. Also, you might want to include Dante Kitchen and Iris. Both have well made cocktails, particularly Iris, goes out of it's way to have some stuff that you might not see elsewhere. Lots of infusions and such.
