New Orleans, LA 70112
In a city filled with dive bars and tourist traps, there’s a bar that separates itself from the pack. Nestled in the heart of the CBD is one of the cities “ultra-casual” lounges with some of the best drinks in the city at Victory Bar
(339 Baronne St.).
Now, while this area is not necessarily known for its “local friendly” bars, our fellow InthekNOwlians will not be disappointed in passing the time away at Victory
. From the highly stylized bar stocked with most spirits to suit any ill, you instantly feel that there is something different about this place with its upscale, yet inviting atmosphere (a balance that isn’t always easy to achieve).
In a land where bartending means popping the top off a PBR or pouring a Jack and Coke, you’ll find that Victory
bartenders are some of the most enthusiastic and knowledgeable bartenders in the city. Not only will they tell you what’s in your drink, but they’re also more than happy to give you a rundown of the history as well. And even if you don’t fancy yourself a history buff, there is still something truly fascinating in discovering the origins of your favorite drink.
Not to be outdone by their cocktails, Victory
also offers a fine dinner menu that would put most bar food to shame. And like the name, they are not just looking to be in the game, they are out to dominate. Unlike normal bar items, such as sliders and fries, you’ll find handmade pizzas and ahi tuna wraps made with fresh ingredients and reasonably priced. And if that sounds a bit too heavy for you, try the addictive truffle popcorn or edamame to whet your appetite.
Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines the word victory
as an “achievement of mastery or success in a struggle or endeavor against odds or difficulties.” And in a city with almost as many bars as people, Victory Bar
exemplifies this through and through.
