Really fun place! great energy, small, intimate--you are close to the performance. Highly recommend it as an easy place to get to, away from the French Quarter.

Lots of wood, full bar, laughter and stories. I went in for one drink, but stayed for more. A perfect place to catch up with friends--or make new ones.

We popped in after running, they were just opening for the day. Great bar tender. Amazing Old Fashion, good conversation with others sitting at the bar. The owner is very personable and I like his taste in art ;)

We were lucky enough to be there the last night the Iguanas were playing before leaving for their summer tours up north. Great place to hear the band and enjoy the local folks.

Paraphrasing "Stefon" (Bill Heider) of SNL: "The NOLA's hottest club is Circle Bar: They have cross-dressing punks, DJ who plays noise, and a guy in boxer-briefs rolling on a parachute, wearing a helmet with blinking lights." Anyway, this all happened and more. Great atmosphere and...More

Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district
