Irish Pub

“Truthfully, Erin Rose is more known as a hole-in-the-wall bar. And, that’s exactly what it is. But, if you are roaming the French Quarter and looking for one of the best po-boys in town, poke your head in and make your way to the back. This pop up kitchen produces some of the tastiest po-boys the city has to offer. A little hidden gem. Favorites: Anything ”

Gastropub

Bar
“A small bar off bourbon street with amazing drinks and a good lineup for live music. I recommend going on Fridays evenings from 7-11 as they also have a Colombian kitchen open. And who doesn’t love food, music and a few well drinks for a great price.”
