A French Quarter bar with a focus on regional brews, Evangeline has recently changed hands but will still be beer-centric.

Ole Saint

A new French Quarter bar, the Ole Saint is dedicated to providing local, regional, and American craft beer to tourists and locals alike. The staff is knowledgeable about beer and can help a beer newbie figure out what they're in the mood for.
