In recent years, New Orleans has seen a lot of new craft breweries pop up, but our favorite is Parleaux Beer Lab. This brewery-meets-beer garden is located at the far end of the Bywater, near The Joint and Bacchanal, and, along with serving plenty of seasonal beers, it hosts different food trucks most nights of the week. Stop by for a few brews and some food, or you can even catch a yoga class here in the morning if you want.

Mimi’s In The Marigny
Mimi’s in the Marigny serves tapas by day and stays open until 4am. Stop by to play some pool, and keep drinking until way later than you should.
Just around the corner from Bacchanal, The Joint serves all of the BBQ greatest hits and is a great spot to start a night out in the Bywater.
Grab a fresh juice and something light to start your day at Satsuma Cafe in the Bywater. It’ll probably be the healthiest choice you make all day.
