Destinations, Food, Football

Need somewhere to watch the Saints playoff game? Here are some of the best neighborhood bars

No matter where you are in the city, there’s a bar full of fans hype for the game Sunday

Sunday is the day the city has been waiting two👏whole👏weeks for. In football, that’s a long time.

The Saints play the Eagles (again), and while the season’s previous match was a blowout in our favor (final score: 7-48), all the sports analysts are telling us not to underestimate Philly. 🙄

Here’s a list of places we love to watch the Saints games at, where the drinks flow and the atmosphere is almost as good as being in the Dome:

MID-CITY

Finn McCool’s – This Irish pub is also known as the city’s premier soccer hub. There are several TV’s around the pub so no matter were you are, you’ll get a good view, and even a 8’4″ projection screen.

Tracey’s Original Irish Bar – While this place gets busy during games, there’s LOTS of seating and the food is awesome. Oysters, roast beef po-boys, gravy fries, count us in.

Walk-On’s – So you want to be in the middle of the action, but you don’t have a ticket to the game. Walk-On’s is just four blocks from the dome and has TV’s literally everywhere you look. The food goes beyond the usual fries and a burger, with gumbo, seafood po-boys ad andouille sausage quesadillas. Get there before the game though, because it’s not uncommon for this place to have a line out of the door to get in.

New Orleans East

Don Villavasso’s – This cigar bar doubles as a good spot to watch games, with four tv’s outside facing the outdoor seating. Since it’s usually a cigar bar, the food choices are more upscale, including shrimp cocktail, ribeye, or glazed salmon.
