Excellent cocktails. Cool retro feel. Even has furniture that Roger Sterling would love. I really enjoyed this place.

Small, nicely decorated restaurant/bar in a quiet Magazine St. area, upscale in menu and price. But if you don't have a big appetite, you can have an excellent meal at a very reasonable price. The grilled cheese sandwich with mortadella and apple butter and the baby greens salad were excellent, and my wife and I were disappointed we didn't have... More

We arrived for our New Orleans Holiday after 10pm on a Saturday night and sought a late night solution with good food and drink outside of the French Quarter madness. Bouligny Tavern showed up on a few sights reco's. The cocktails were excellent and our food choices of Octopus, Blue Crab Claws and a shared Sirloin Burger were, while small... More

I miss my evenings out in my old hometown of Chicago, and thought that I couldn't find the same feel in my new NOLA home. Bouligny Tavern more than fits my need of urban sophistication and great cocktails with a cool vibe, inside and on their patio. The inside has the feel of a 50's nightclub, down to vinyl being...

We stopped in for drinks ahead of dinner at Lilette. Nice atmosphere and service. Decor is Mad Men meets the South.

We went with a group and sat outside between the Tavern and Lilitte. The weather was perfect and the signature drinks were very good. We ordered a cheese platter and that was also excellent. The staff was a little off that night. Our waitress had a trainee with her so that took more time and anther waitress came to help... More

More like cocktails and a bunch of snacks. All interesting surprising tasty. Ended up being expensive but the porch table with the thunderstorm raging left us with wonderful memories.

My husband and I moved to New Orleans from Biloxi, MS in November 2015 and have had the privilege of living in the beautiful and historic Garden District in NOLA. We have passed by the Bouligny Tavern many times and have been drawn to the inviting and romantic allure of the restaurant just from its outside appearance alone. Last night... More

This place is great for a drink on a weeknight. Packed out on a Friday or Saturday though, so beware. Large bar. Tons of options. Great location. Food options are decent as well if you want to snack on some of the small plates.

I've gone here multiple times to get drinks and some bites with friends. It has a great atmosphere, everything on the menu looks great and the french fries are so good, and the wine menu and cocktails do not disappoint either. It is hard to go with a larger group on the weekends as it gets pretty crowded, but sometimes... More

Staying in Garden District

Neighbourhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
