I just wish Metairie had a few nice bars I could take the wife too before or after dinner.



Metairie near Vets is mostly loaded with doobrahs and old people, so there is no market for a nice bar.

I know. That is why we just eat in N.O.

Seriousl, I would love to see a nice beer bar not named Lagers in Metairie. I know asking for a wine bar or something classy would be too much.

I need to go check out the bar at Ruth's since they did an expansion and doubled the size I think. Not the kind of place I want to "hang out" though.

Has potential, but the people and bartenders in there annoy me.

Drove past the other Andrea's place the other day. The patio looks kinda nice. Not like you have a great view or anything but who knows.

It is probably the closest thing to a "nice bar" you will find in Metairie.

It's a concrete rectangle.


Most of the "nice bars" in Metairie are going to be in restaurants, Vega Tapas, Chateau du Lac, Bonefish, Cafe B, Austin's, etc.

Really?

Laketown grill isn't that bad. They made it look stupid with all those mafia pictures on the windows.

Step Brothers is also pretty decent.

How is Winston's by the way? What's the set up like in there, who goes, what type of clientele?

I've been to The Cabin multiple times and have coozies from there. Does that lower my uppity level?

I don't think you understand what we mean by "nice bar." There is nothing wrong with step brothers but it doesn't fit into this category.

I've only been after work a few times. Just a standard neighborhood bar with almost an Irish feel. A little dark with lots of darker wood.
I like the scotch and bourbon selection. Decent beers. Food isn't worth a shite.

What they really need to do is work the back deck area into some kind of nice patio. Right now it looks like a deck PeeJay would put behind his trailor.
