Best Bar Around Tulane University...........

  • 7

We will have an early dinner at Clancy's and we are looking for a good place to enjoy some after dinner drinks in that area. Thanks.

  1. Monkey Hill and St. Joe’s are two options nearby. St. Joe’s makes a great blueberry mojito.

    1. Well the Boot is right next to campus...

      I always go to St. Joe's after Clancy's. Dos Jefe's would be another option. For a more upscale experience go to Delachaise, which is not as close but still uptown (St. Chas and Delachaise). Or go to the Columns.

        I always just stay at Clancy's but Dos Jefe's is a good idea

        1. re: hazelhurst

          There are a ton of bars, but some are the typical "college bar" like Bruno's, Quills, Boot, etc... and others like St. Joes aren't, but they also aren't as close to Tulane. Close to Tulane I would say Cure is raved about a bunch (I have never been) and Cooter Brown's is great IMO.

      2. The previous posts offer many great options. For me, the choice would be based on the day of the week and time. Some of these venues get very crowded later in the evening and on the weekend. If you want a nice apothecary influenced cocktail and it isn’t too crowded then the bar at Patois (across the street from Clancy’s) would be a great option. Cure has fantastic apothecary cocktails and a wonderful space but can be packed on evenings later in the week and over the weekend.

        I like Dos Jefes because of the live music (check the website for the schedule) and it tends to get a slightly older crowd than St. Joe’s or Monkey Hill, which attract many students on weekends. There is, however, the sometimes intense cigar smoke. While St. Joe’s is rather divey, and that has its own pleasures, the back garden has a lovely series of decorations and can be a temperate place for early fall drinks. I like their rendition of the blueberry mojito. The Columns, Cure, and Delachaise also have pleasant outdoor spaces.

        1. Oak Wine Bar on, of course, Oak Street. Great bar and music most nights.

            Oak is a good suggestion, as is Cure. Both are nice places. Oak has a great wine flight.
