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.
Avenue Pub is routinely rated one fo the top 100 beer bars in the country and for good reason. Over 50 rotating taps of craft beer from around the world with staff that knows their shit. Great selection of whiskeys as well, and a kitchen that serves up better than normal bar food. They've got a back patio and also a second floor balcony that overlooks the St. Charles streetcar line and the oaks. Pricey, but for NOLA standards, not by anyone else's.
Nano-brewery with usually half a dozen or so of their own beers on tap, plus about 15 or so more local and national craft beers on tap too. They specialize in west coast style IPAs, but there's something for everyone. They always have a food truck parked out front in the evenings, too if you're hungry. Tell Scott, the owner, I sent you.
