We often hang out at McCools. Great drink and great peeps. Nice local community bar with lots of sports and good food. Cheers.

located in Mid City New Orleans. This place is brilliant. They had a huge block party for St Patricks day which was great fun. Very good food. One of the best things though is they show all the sports including Rugby and Soccer live no matter what time in the morning.Brilliant atmosphere, great bartenders. Would highly recommend for locals and... More

Our neighborhood bar! We love it here. Great drinks and great service. Monday night trivia. Great place for sports, no matter the team they usually try to accommodate. Stop in for a cold pint!

This is a great neighborhood bar, with a great Irish vibe, including a rugby jersey from the local club the bar helps sponsor. They have a wide variety of drinks, and a solid pub grub menu including...poutine with homemade corned beef! This dish contributed to the best night drinking of my life, and remains one of the greatest single dining... More

It's like Irish lite. It seemed pretty usual new orleans bar. Interesting beer selection, some new ones I've never seen. If it wasn't for the beer selection, and rated on the food, it would have gotten one lower star. The food is slightly below average with above average prices. The chicken wings were very tough, like they were way undercooked,... More

Went with my husband to watch the Liverpool match during our stay in New Orleans. Beer is excellent and at a great price! Food was amazing too. Would highly recommend trying the crispy Brussel sprouts. Only thing I would say is that because it is a little way away from anything and is located in a residential area to get... More

We stayed away from Finn's for a while because we assumed that it was a branch of the national chain. Not so. It's a local establishment that was rebuilt after Katrina, funky and friendly. Like many New Orleans establishments, the food and drink are separate (you order food from the window, like at Cooter Brown's and NOLA Tap Room). But... More

We loved the food we ordered, especially the poutine, and the service was great! They also had a great selection of beers and outdoor seating.

Could possibly be the coolest of the cool. A true pub. It's like sepia toned invitation to sit and relax. I was kind of hoping a thunderstorm would happen to give us an excuse to extend our stay. The beer list is generous, the cider list as well. It's far removed from the French Quarter madness, damn near in the... More
