Any Philadelphia Eagles Bars in New Orleans?

I'm taking a road trip with some friends this week, and I'm going to be in New Orleans on Sunday. I want to catch the Eagles playoff game down there on Sunday, and I was wondering if there are any bars that are exclusively for Eagles fans. If not, does anyone know a place that's good to watch NFL games in general? Thanks-

    Do not know of specifically Eagle bars, but Cooter Brown's is where I would be watching. There are always a ton of fans of various teams there on Saturdays and Sundays.

      Other than the Milan Lounge's support for the Chicago Cubs, are there other bars where support runs high for out of state teams?

        45Tchoup (4529 Tchoupitoulas St. corner of Jena St) is sports bar that has various banners/flags/etc for out of state teams on its balcony/exterior.

        Thanks mikek, Cooter's sounds appealing. I guess an Eagles bar isn't totally necessary. Anyhow, I'm traveling with a couple of NYers who are still sore over last week's loss.

          Hehe. Yea, one of my roommates from college is a huge Giants fan. He didn't talk to me for a day for fear of what would come to pass if he did.

        The game is over now obviously, GO EAGLES!, but had I seen this before I would've told you that Finn McCool's is a great neighborhood pub to watch sports in, though it is best for Saints games. I too would like to know if there are any Eagles bars in town. I will look into this.

            Andy - you beat me to this post! I'm also a big Eagles fan and will be in New Orleans for the weekend with a bachelorette party. A bunch of us will definitely be watching the game, so maybe we'll see you at one of these bars.

              Super- judging by this I guess we'll hit up Finn McCool's. Post a note to the thread if you hear of anything better, or more Eagles-centric...and try to save some partying for the game on Sunday-

          I'm not a big sports fan but there always seemed to be people at the Acme or Vic's Kangaroo Cafe watching sports.

            If anyone knows for sure, it would be Dan Stein at Stein's Deli on Magazine. He's from Philly (and he sells TastyKakes).

            I ended up watching the game at Bourbon Rocks on Bourbon Street. We were in the area, and it was getting close to game time, so I ducked in there. Definitely isn't an Eagles bar, as I might have hoped, but there were plenty of Birds fans there as the game went on. Got a seat at the bar, and beers were three for $4.50, that is, they serve you three at once. Needless to say, I was somewhat liquored up by the time the game ended, which helped blunt the pain of the loss. In general, I would guess that any of the sports bars on Bourbon would be good for a football game. Cheap beer, lots of flatscreens, and plenty of foot traffic from the street.

              Glad that you had fun! In general terms, most of the "sports bars," in New Orleans support the various local teams. Though NOLA is a tourist city, there seem to be fewer bars dedicated to out of town sports teams. It is usualy about the local teams.

              Heck, even in PHX, there is a Steeler's bar in Cave Creek. In NOLA, its not quite the same. If it's Tulane, the Saints, or LSU playing, you'll find many to choose from.
