Place to watch NHL playoffs in CBD/French Quarter
My final question before we leave. I just realized game one of the Caps game (I'm from Maryland) is tomorrow night, so I'll be looking for a place to catch the game (I know New Orleans isn't much of a hockey town, but I'll be sure to ask very nicely) while we're bar hopping around the quarter. A good beer selection is a huge huge plus, naturally.
Thanks! Counting the hours until our flight!
Crescent City Brewhouse is probably the best place in the FQ to watch sports. They have plenty of TV's on second floor.

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. Antoine's Herme's Bar has food and TV's.

Damn, you guys are quick! Thanks for the swift responses. Yeah, when I googled my issue Cooter Brown's was the first to show up, but unfortunately it's too far uptown.
I'll keep both the Checkered Parrot and Rotolo's in mind. I guess my first idea is to simply request it be shone wherever we're at. Or I could ask some locals for some ideas. But you guys are great in providing the backup plan. I leave for the airport in t-minus 1 hour and 20 minutes. Too bad our damned flight is delayed 40 minutes because of this storm. Bah! I need a beer!

Ok bear with me here, but Rotolo's Pizza on the corner of Chartres and Conti has a good selection of local beers, several on draft, and they have three or four tvs in the bar area. They're usually not too busy, and they're good about putting whatever you want on tv. It's not a super unique NOLA atmosphere or anything, but the bartenders are nice and it's a relatively pleasant non-smoking spot.
That's a really good idea...I've had luck at some non-descript places when I have been in the Quarter for Memorial Day lunch but wanted to see pieces of the Indy 500. I eat awhile, nip out for five minutes, come back. Rotolo's is just the kida place that wouldn't mind accomodating a hockey visitor.
The best combo of beer and sports is at Cooter Brown's, but that's all the way uptown. I've watched hockey in the past at The Checkered Parrot, on Royal between Canal and Iberville in the Quarter. I have no recollection of their beer selection, though.

I was reccomended Avenue Pub on lower St charles not far from the Quarter ownership has changed and I would imagine so has the menu but not there so much for the food nice beer lineup and TVs and will put NHL on. Will check it out this week...
