Nola's Newest Drinking Patio is Part Beer Garden, Part Beach Bar

Tchoup Yard brings Bushwackers, beer & food trucks to Irish Channel


The Tchoup Yard, a  new Irish Channel bar that reminds Ian McNulty of a cross between a beer garden, beach bar and Celebration in the Oaks, is now open at 405 Third Street.

The outdoor hub is the second bar from F&M Patio Bar owner Trevor Palmer, and includes 80+ parking spots, an entrance on Second Street and a block-wide fenced-in compound that will also debut an indoor bar with rolling garage-style doors called Zanzabar Annex next year.

Unlike F&M's, though, this spot is hoping to draw in some hefty afternoon/evening business, rather than catering to a late night crowd.

More importantly, The Tchoup Yard brings a few frozen drinks to the mix, including beloved Pensacola Beach drink The Bushwacker— "mocha-flavored cousin to the piña colada"—  along with frozen margaritas, a few wines on tap, an ample beer selection served in frosty schooners, a full bar with some classic drinks, and a rotating roster of pop-ups and food trucks.

Hours: Thursday, 4 p.m. to midnight Friday, 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. Saturday,  2 p.m. to 2 a.m. Sunday, 2 p.m. to midnight. (504) 895-6747.  On Facebook here.
