    LIBATIONS FOR LOCALS: MAY 2015

    This is not your father’s scotch. Owners Ivan Burgess and David Brown have done the dirty work by vetting almost each of the 70 scotches on offer, demanding an even share of smoke, peat and sweetness throughout all of their blends. Don’t worry if you’re not a whisky lover. This local’s favorite bar also serves up lighter concoctions, like Disco Lemonade (a sake, vodka and lemon mix) to enjoy on the lush patio. Patrons at The Rusty Nail also find the location, tucked away in the Warehouse District, a pleasant and welcoming retreat. 1100 Constance St., (504) 525-5515, therustynail.biz – See more

Like New Orleans itself, The Nail mixes patrons from all walks of life and regardless of the life you’re walking from, you will be greeted with a smile and a great drink of your choice. We love everybody at The Nail and offer something for everyone.

Looking for a place to watch the game? We gotcha covered with 5 flat screens and an 86 inch projector screen inside, and 4 flat screens and a 65 inch big screen on the patio. Bleacher seating and fun music during commercials give us a football atmosphere that you can’t beat in NOLA.

Looking for live music? Check. The events page has our schedule for live bands and DJ.

Like Beer? 16 drafts and over 50 bottle/cans ranging from $2 High Life to $9 Frambois
Like Scotch? 40 Single Malt selections and numerous blends from $5 well to a $30 Johnny Walker Blue.
Other Whiskey? Over 40 American, Canadian, and Irish whiskeys from $5 Jameson to $12 Hudson Whiskey.
Wine Lover? We have a great list (for a bar) and half-price bottles during happy hour-from a $5 glass of Chardonnay to a $80 bottle of Veuve Clicquot.

And yes we have vodka Redbull and Jaeger bombs too.

The old saying You can’t please everybody is true…but we give it our best shot! So come spend some time with us and you will find out why The Rusty Nail is worth finding.
