Note: Restaurants on this map are listed geographically.

1. Bayou Beer Garden

Copy Link
326 N. Jefferson Davis Pkwy
New Orleans, LA 70119
The BBG is STILL the jam for watching Saints Game. The bar has a killer back deck for nice weather, and the game is projected onto a big screen. They also have ten plasma televisions, great bar food (including the popular gravy fries) and beer bucket specials to get you there. Go early to claim a seat.

2. Mid-City Yacht Club

Copy Link
440 S. St. Patrick St.
New Orleans, LA 70119
(504) 483-2517
Visit Website
Not a yacht club at all, this bar's name is a reference to the water level in Mid City after Katrina. MCYC has a spanking new back courtyard with a 70" television, and is now non-smoking inside with 10 HD TVs, a fancy new food menu including brunch, a well-stocked bar and rabid, local fans. Order a Cool Brees mimosa to start.

3. Markey's Bar

Copy Link
640 louisa street
New Orleans, Louisiana 70117
The place to watch games in the Bywater, Markey's is a very local Saints fan haunt and for good reason. The bar is long enough to get a good view from any seat, and there's lots of tables. There's deep fried bar food and quick service. The bartenders treat you well, and are much loved by their regulars (so don't try any funny stuff, drunk guy).

4. R Bar

Copy Link
1431 Royal Street
New Orleans, LA 70116
The small Marigny bar known for attracting hipsters and old weirdos alike throws Saints parties that promise total mayhem, from victory shots, free food, to full on brass bands that have wandered in during half-time. You never know what you're gonna get, other than the obligatory "voodoo doll, flags, and game winning shots."

5. Tchoup 45

An Eater commenter says, "drink specials, free food (sometimes made by well-known chefs), a huge screen TV plus many smaller ones all airing the game, and lots of friendly camaraderie" make this Uptown bar a hoot, even though some Pats fan take over the back.

6. The Irish House

Copy Link
1432 Saint Charles Ave
New Orleans, LA 70130
(504) 595-6755
Visit Website
This weekend expect is Irish House's 'half way to St. Patrick weekend,' so game day will be huge with the Muff-a-lotta dance troop performing and many a drink special, including "$3 pints during the game," says one Eater reader, and free shots when the Saints score. They've also been known to do a wing and pitcher special on the cheap too. Open for brunch at 8 a.m. for home games too.

7. Tracey's

Copy Link
2604 Magazine St.
New Orleans, LA 70130
18 Televisions, famous Roast Beef Po Boys, gravy cheese fries... What more could you ask for on game day? Oh yeah, drink specials, lots of Who Dats, and a lot of space to get ya crunk dance on in this Irish Channel favorite.

8. Spirits On Bourbon

Copy Link
615 Bourbon Street
New Orleans, LA 70130
(504) 524-6014
Visit Website
Yes, this is the place that appeared on an episode Bar Rescue. Lately they've been gaining popularity as a good place to watch games on Bourbon (if you dare go there), and have been featured on Fox8's tailgate show. The bar has NFL Ticket, a courtyard with lots of televisions, game specials, dueling pianos, and a specialty drink that glows. Is your mind blown yet?
