Old Point Bar

With the Mississippi River levee as one of its neighbors, the Old Point practically glows with Algiers ambience. No wonder so many film producers have used it as a set. Meanwhile, the acoustics of the wood-lined room have inspired many local bands to record live albums from its small stage. When weather permits, there's plenty of outdoor seating. Choose from 16 beers on tap, with many local craft brews. Live music most nights. Open daily. Smoking allowed.
