For Visiting Comics

Thinking about coming through New Orleans to do some comedy? Hell yeah! It's always a good time here. In fact, there's so much to do here that we put together a list of the places us locals like to go and places we like to tell visitors to go check out. Also, please, try to find someone to stay with here. Most of us have space to put up a couple comics. Please do not use AirBNB in New Orleans. It's a long story, but basically, it's killing the ability for anyone to afford housing and is ruining our neighborhoods. We'll find you a couch or a bed or an air mattress that won't fuck up our economy.

Junction

3021 St. Claude Ave. in Bywater
The burgers here are incredible. They use all grassfed cows or someshit, or they use one whole cow? Anyway, foods awesome and they've got a killer craft beer line up too and their staff knows their shit about the beers, too. They're open until 2am and they're pretty close to where most shows happen.

Dive Bar

Markey's

640 Louisa St. in Bywater
It's not a great bar and it's usually really crowded, but, if you've been out drinking in the area and need some late night bar food, Markey's will do.

Red's Chinese

3048 St. Claude in Bywater
This is some solid American Chinese food. It's like if you gave Chinese food a tall bicycle and a moustache, but it tasted good. Big portions. Cocktails are pretty good too.
