If you want to know what’s going on in a neighborhood, you ask the folks that are in and out all day, every day. So we asked our agents to give us their top picks for places in the Irish Channel.
In no particular order, here are the 6 neighborhood winners.
St Vincent Corner Store
In addition to a large beer and snack selection, the kind folks at St Vincent Corner Store will also hold packages for you if you have them shipped there. Now THAT is being a good neighbor. It’s no wonder they have all 5 star reviews on Google.
2372 Constance St, open 7 days a week, 8am – 10pm
Yoga with beer. Need we say more? Fine. There’s also the McClure’s BBQ restaurant that’s attached, random live musical performances, and brewery tours every Friday.
3001 Tchoupitoulas St, open 7 days a week, 11am – 11pm
Little Korea BBQ
Tableside barbecued meats? We’re in. Don’t tell the tourists.
