Set off the tourist track among the shops of the attractive uptown Garden District, The Bulldog attracts a friendly crowd of locals and students. With its red wood ceiling, timber-clad walls and lengthy, solid wooden bar counter it feels like a log cabin - cosy and welcoming, even to a lone stranger walking in for the first time.
The Bulldog serves the local community well with some 50 beers on tap and more than 100 bottled brews. As well as local gems such as Abita Andygator you'll find Belgian ales and American microbrews.
Sports screens are dotted about but rock music provides the soundtrack.
The kitchen hatch opposite the bar knocks out the burgers but do consider making like a local and running across the street to the Big Fisherman seafood store. Their boiled mudbugs (crayfish, to Brits) are a great accompaniment to your chosen pint and best enjoyed alfresco on the pub's side patio.
