I sometimes wonder how New Orleans can be such a beautiful city yet have so few bars with a view. With three large picture windows facing City Park, the bar gives one the feeling of sitting on an air-conditioned porch among the live oaks. Happy hour is every night from 5:30 until closing, with three appetizers and a glass of wine for $28. The 12-seat bar and surrounding tables fill up fast. Ask about the monthly specialty cocktail with proceeds supporting a worth local charity.
Tip: Piano great and "Treme" guest star Joe Krown entertains Tuesdays through Thursdays from 5 to 8 pm.
