FQ/CBD Sports Bar?

Will be there in a couple weeks and need a recommendation in the FQ/CBD area for watching the Saints and Ryder Cup on Sunday afternoon - any suggestions? Thanks.

  1. Just about every bar in NOLA has a TV. They will all be showing the Saints games for their NOLA customers. I would go to Lucy's on Tchoupitoulas in CBD. You can walk there from FQ. You may want to catch a cab if a lady is with you. Drew Brees has been known to hang out there.

    Lucy's Bar @ 701 Tchoupitoulas St., New Orleans, LA 504 - 523 - 8995.

    Crescent City Brewhouse is probably the best place in the FQ to watch sports. They have plenty of TV's on second floor.

    Crescent City Brewhouse @ 527 Decatur St., New Orleans, LA. 504 - 522 - 0571.

    Johnny White's is a true sports bar. Turtle Bay is a sports bar also. Chateau Moanet Voila Bar is a sports bar. Broussard's has TV's in their bar and from time to time they have specials to eat and watch the game. Rick's is on Bourbon but your wife won't like it. It's a gentlemen's sports bar. Antoine's Herme's Bar has food and TV's.

    Johnny White's Sports Bar @ 720 Bourbon St., New Orleans, LA 504 - 524 - 4909.

    Turtle Bay Food and Spirits @ 1119 Decatur Street, New Orleans, LA 504 - 586 - 0563.

    Chateau Moanet Voila Bar @ 300 Decatur Street, New Orleans, LA 504 - 581 - 2534.

    Broussard's @ 819 Conti St., New Orleans, LA. 504 - 581 - 3866.

    Rick's Sporting Saloon @ 522 Bourbon Street, New Orleans, LA 504 - 552 - 2510.

    Antoine's @ 713 Saint Louis St., New Orleans, LA. 504 - 581 - 4422.

    Go to the corner of Bienville and Decatur. Club Decatur or Ryan's Irish Pub have TV's but neither is a sports bar. Both are great places to watch games with a lot of big screen TV's. Duck into one and then the other and decide which one your like.

    Call the Carousel Bar at The Monteleone I think they have TV's. It's smoke free. Coop's Place is also smoke free and has a few TV's. St. Charles Tavern is on St. Charles just W of Lee Circle. They have TV's and it's smoke free.

    Carousel Bar @ Hotel Monteleone| @ 214 Royal St., New Orleans, LA. 504 - 523 - 3341.

    Coops Place @ 1109 Decatur St., New Orleans, LA. 504 - 525 - 9053.

    St. Charles Tavern @ 1433 Saint Charles Ave., New Orleans, LA 504 - 523 - 9823.

    Markey's is in By Water. You will need a cab but it's got plenty of TV's and local cajuns to visit with.

    Markey's Bar @ 640 Louisa Street, New Orleans, LA 504 - 943 - 0785.

    For future reference the best sports bar in NOLA is Finn McCool's in Mid City. You can take the streetcar on Canal most of the way and walk about 4 blocks.

    Finn McCool's Irish Pub @ 3701 Banks St., New Orleans, LA 504 - 486 - 9080.

    Also for future reference. Take a cab Uptown to Cooter Brown's for the best sports bar and fresh oysters.

    Cooter Brown's Tavern @ 509 South Carrollton Ave., New Orleans, LA 504 - 866 - 9104.

    And Bruno's Tavern close to Tulane is excellent for sports and bar food.

    Bruno's Tavern @ 7538 Maple Street, New Orleans, LA 504 - 861 - 7615.

    1. re: Littleman

      i am so saddened that the new owners of Turtle Bay have rendered it into just another sports bar. it used to be special. now its lit up by the omnipresent blue hue of TVs and beer signs.

      one more bites the dust.

      1. re: kibbles

        Yup...even tailgating has been infested. I expect televisions--or a Dick Tracy type wrist thing-y--in Quality Places everywhere, but preferably after I am dead

    2. Try Gordon Biersch next to Harrah's
