West Bank


The Crown and Anchor Pub

This charming neighborhood bar in Algiers Point has authentic English pub decor and atmosphere to match. It occasionally stages live music, hosts dart tournaments on Wednesday and quiz night on Thursday, as well as sports on TV. The pub offers a large selection of imported beers and several draft brews. Open daily. Smoking: yes. Dog friendly. Happy hour 4 p.m.-7 p.m. daily. 200 Pelican Ave., 227-1007;

Dry Dock Cafe

Located near the Algiers Point landing for the Canal Street ferry, this restaurant bar serves reasonably priced cocktails and properly poured Guinness. The old-fashioned wood bar is a regular meeting place for people in the neighborhood or those venturing in to try Sex on the Levee (a specialty drink), or the cafe's Best Bank Burger. Open daily. Smoking: no. 133 Delaronde St., 361-8240;

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 numerous local bands to record live albums from its small stage. Open daily. Smoking: yes. Live music most nights. 545 Patterson St., 364-0950;

Vine & Dine

This cozy wine bar and courtyard on Algiers Point is housed behind a wine and cheese store. The bar top and tables are made of wood reclaimed from demolished New Orleans houses, with holes filled with wine corks. Wines are sold at retail prices (there's a $5 corkage fee), and there's a large selection of craft and imported beers. Food is served Monday through Saturday. Open: 3 p.m.-9 p.m. Mon.-Fri., noon to 9 p.m. Saturday. Smoking: courtyard only. 141 Delaronde St., 361-1402;


Calegan's Big Dawgs

You get the feeling that just about anything could blow through the door of this roadhouse-style bar. Local rock bands perform on the occasional Saturday. Drop in for the 12-hour-long happy hour (7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mon.-Fri.) and you'll find cheap domestic beers and two-for-one shots. Open daily. Smoking: yes. 111 Wright Ave., Gretna, 366-9262

Gattuso's Neighborhood Bar and Restaurant

Nestled in the charming historic district of Gretna, Gattuso's has free live musc every Friday and Saturday night, and a generous ladies night on Wednesday (women drink free from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.). Daily happy hour offers half-price appetizers, $1.50 domestic beer and more from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Check out the patio for drinking and dining from a menu of gourmet salads, wraps, classic New Orleans dishes and more. Open Mon.-Sat., Smoking: patio only. Video poker. Dog-friendly. 435 Huey P. Long Ave., Gretna, 368-1114;

The Rugby Pub

Jerseys, trophies and the flags of rugby-playing nations decorate this tavern, while a lush courtyard evokes a bit of a French Quarter feel. Bands perform periodically, and regulars contribute to a potluck buffet for all Saints games. The New Orleans rugby team plays nearby and hosts its own post-game parties here. Open daily. Smoking: yes. 2802 Belle Chasse Hwy., Gretna, 363-0007;


Boomers at Boomtown Casino

On Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Boomers features an ever-shifting roster of live music acts with no cover, while Wednesday brings comedians to the stage. Thursday is ladies' night, when women receive two-for-one drink specials. You can order food at the adjoining buffet. Open daily. Smoking: yes. 4132 Peters Road, Harvey, 366-7711;

Daiquiri Dock

Daiquiris and pool are the specialties, with league play nightly and tournaments at 6 p.m. Sunday. Jäeger shots and beer also are favorites among regulars who come to this neighborhood bar to play on the five championship-grade pool tables. Pizza will be available soon, but now there are jalapeno poppers, french fries and boudin on a stick. Open daily. Smoking: yes. Happy hour 4 p.m.-7 p.m. Mon.-Fri. 2630 Manhattan Blvd., Suite H, Harvey, 368-3622
