As the name suggests, this is a New Orleans-inspired bar and restaurant and has only been open since February of this year. It's a fun place with a warm atmosphere, young and enthusiastic staff, and great-priced Louisiana-style comfort food. It has already developed a loyal crowd, mostly from the immediate neighbourhood. The live blues music on weekend evenings doesn't hurt.

Absinthe is served in the traditional method. Cocktails, which are very good, are divided into Classics (5) and Signatures (6). Personal favourites include Little Death (rye, amaro, salted chocolate caramel, rosemary smoke).

Their outdoor patio adds significant seating during the summer months.
