Drinking Culture

Dropping A Dime On Barcadia



Gentle reader, as sojourners in this life we must take our entertainment where we find it. The dive bar and the neighborhood bar please us well. But let us indulge our curiosity and step inside an establishment that can be many places at once, brushing by geography and local culture like the broadcast of a syndicated television program. It’s time to take a peek into a chain bar – if only a regional chain bar. We’re off for a game or two, and perhaps a drink, at Barcadia.


Revelator 6.37

Coffee Mecca Opens in Warehouse District



A few years ago, some New Orleanians were talking about coffee, the South, and cuisine. From that conversation, the Revelator Coffee Company was born. Shortly thereafter Revelator was operating successful shops in Birmingham, Alabama and Chattanooga, Tennessee. On Tuesday (6.30), Revelator is coming home to NOLA, and opening a location at 637 Tchoupitoulas. 


Lasting Legacy: Another Restaurant Comes to Warehouse District


The Warehouse District is continuing to blow up with new apartments and businesses opening at a breakneck speed. On Wednesday (4.08), Legacy Kitchen branched out from Metaire opening a second location in the hip hood at the corner of Tchoupitoulas and Girod Streets.


Compton Straight Into NOLA


The Crescent City is filled with people who came to visit, but never left. Chef Nina Compton is joining those ranks. The popular chef fell in love with the city during her appearance on Season 11 of Top Chef, and decided to return when it was time to open her own restaurant.


Deadly DriveBy in the Warehouse District


Another man is dead after a double shooting in the Warehouse District this morning. Police say that two men in a car were the victims of a drive by shooting from a second vehicle with grim results.


More Construction (& Closures) in CBD this Week


Road construction in NOLA is a necessary evil. The infrastructure needs repair, but the resulting traffic is frustrating, especially in the CBD. However, as the City builds and rebuilds the congestion will continue. The Sewerage & Water Board of New Orleans (SWBNO) announced new closures on in the area slated to begin today (10.15).


Construction to Chop a Lane on Tchoup


Driving in the CBD and the Warehouse District is only fun if you’re atop a tractor and pulling a parade float. However, traffic conditions in the area will be even worse for the next month. The Sewerage & Water Board of New Orleans (SWBNO) announced new closures on Tchoupitoulas slated to begin Monday (10.6).


Police ID Warehouse District Shooting Suspect


NOPD have identified a suspect in a Warehouse District shooting that occurred on May 27, 2014. One visitor was given a painful reminder about accepting rides from strangers, but police are now on the trail of his alleged assailant.


Hogging the Block: Cochon Butcher Expands


Big things often have small beginnings, as was the case with the Cochon Butcher (930 Tchoupitoulas). Donald Link's sandwich spin-off has quietly expanded into its neighboring building and now occupies over two thousand square feet of space. The Warehouse District eatery did not shut down at all during the expansion, which happened the Wednesday before Jazz Fest weekend.
