The bars in New Orleans are centered on drinking and socializing with a distinctive and cultural flare. Uptown New Orleans is not exempt from this sentiment. From college bars to old and haunted watering holes, Uptown has options for any nightlife setting. Here are our top picks.
A rowdy bar on Freret Street, Publiq House is a warehouse bar. It’s trendy with the brick-walled aesthetic, and it serves quality beer and cocktails. Being set in a warehouse, Publiq House has the trendy urban flare while also being able to practically hold large numbers of crowds. The Publiq House is an upscale comfort bar that holds the promise of a lively time.

Mayfair Lounge is one of the best bars in the Uptown district, but it’s also one of the better bars in the entire city. The bar is relaxed with its demeanor, offering casual drinks with the option of conversation, but the décor is far from relaxed. With Mardi Gras beads, Christmas decorations and neon strings hanging from the ceiling, Mayfair Lounge has a big personality. Good jukebox, too.
