Algiers and Algiers Point encompass one of the oldest neighborhoods in New Orleans. Isolated by water, Algiers requires a ferry ride or car trip to enter, but it’s worth it. Especially for an amazing night out at one of the bars we present here.

Arguably the best bar in the area, Old Point Bar is situated in an urban scenic spot: near the levees and town. It’s a vintage dive bar with pool tables, jukeboxes, and an outer patio area designated for live music and outdoor beer drinking. Drinks are questionably affordable and made with great quality, but they’re simple.

The Crown and Anchor

Crown and Anchor is located in Algiers Point; a smaller city connected to New Orleans by bridge. Following in New Orleans’s European influence, Crown and Anchor is as close to an authentic English pub as America can get.

Vine and Dine is a cozy and intimate wine bar that serves small Italian fare. With a decorated courtyard out back, Vine and Dine is the essential casual and homey bar to the neighborhood. Open reasonably late and serving some liquor outside of wine, Vine and Dine is one of a kind in the area.

Mississippi River Bottom is a small-scale dive bar that has been in operation for a handful of years. As much as it is known as a local watering hole, their authentic Louisiana food; including the infamous crawfish, takes the limelight. Reasonable drinks, amazing food, and a riverside view makes this bar an all-star.

The Apple Barrel is a different bar for the area. Located underneath the district’s famous Adolfo’s, Apple Barrel is a night-time lounge that hosts live music every night. With a colorful entrance and walls covered in dollar bills, this bar and music venue is distinctly New Orleans.

The Country Club

Bar, Restaurant, Cocktails, Beer, American, Vegetarian, $$$

Both a venue for daytime and nighttime activities, the Country Club is a restaurant, bar, and pool. It’s essentially a country club but a funky country club without the snoot. The drinks range from beer and liquor to craft cocktails. Smoking allowed. Open late.
