The ground level giant windows looking on to Tchoupitoulas Street in the Warehouse District are as close to the actual outdoors as patrons at Tchoupitoulas Beer Garden (or as they like to be called, TBG) will get, but the decor is meant to evoke an outdoor paradise. Brick floors, sky blue painted ceiling, and greenery along the walls all complement the traditional bright orange biergarden communal tables that serve as the centerpiece for TBG's German-inspired eatery. Family games like table tennis and air hockey beckon friends and family to play together away from cell phones.
The food and beer are payable on a token system, where the customer buys a number of doubloons to pay for most items available at TBG. The beer choices range from one to three tokens, while most of the food menu items are three tokens. The system is meant to streamline the ordering and payment process so that people are served quickly even when the restaurant is busy. Doubloons are $4.50 each, or buy 10 and get 1 free.
Awaiting final permits, TBG should open next week.
