    A huge selection of liquor from bourbons to tequilas. Try to know what you want before you order on busy nights. Usually a cover when there is music (it's always worth it).

    There's usually a cover, but they've got the best booze on Frenchmen St, and the tunes are great. Once you've paid the cover you can come and go as you like (with your beverage in a to-go cup).

    Palmetto Bug Stompers have a regular Sunday night gig here. Swing Dancers usually show up so it's great to listen to the band and watch the dancers.

    The $1 credit card charge on every swipe is a scam. It's written in very fine print on the wall but most people are too drunk to realize. I won't be back.

    Differential treatment based on where you come from. Took over 10 minutes to consider taking to order, scrutinized my ID as though it was not legit, and asked me to deposit a fee to keep an open tab.
