This two-story Uptown Crescent-City-themed bar shares its wrought iron and plant-filled patio (as well as some of its menu items) with its next-door neighbor and sister establishment, Bread Winners. The bar manager says there's even one popular snack that's not on the menu, but the bar's regulars know to ask for the green chili mac n' cheese. The inside resembles a library or a study minus the walls of books. The decor's all leather, dark woods and plush fabrics, and there are plenty of nooks and crannies for private conversations, making it a great place for a first date or a spot to catch up with old friends. Their great daily specials, including $1.50 PBRs on Mondays and $3 wells on Thursdays, make this a popular neighborhood haunt.
