With the development of North Rampart and street car extension comes this new beer bar from Ed Díaz, owner of nearby Bar Tonique, and former Erin Rose manager Bert West. The Penny Black offers a relaxed retreat with a choice of more than 70 canned craft beers just three blocks from Bourbon Street.
It's a bar of two halves: one side with a bare distressed plaster wall and plush creamy leather banquet seating, the other being the bar proper with a dark wood bar counter and Salvaged barge boards as the back bar.
