ABOUT US

Located on the border of the Warehouse District and the Lower Garden District, The Nail combines the feel of the two very different New Orleans neighborhoods. We are grounded and gritty like the LGD and also hip and progressive like the WHD. 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. Open Mic every Tuesday. Jenn Howard Jazz every Wednesday, and check the events page for weekend bands.

Like Beer? 16 drafts and over 50 bottle/cans ranging from $2 High Life to $9 Urthel Hop-it.
Like Scotch? 40 Single Malt selections and numerous blends from $5 well to a $30 Johnny Walker Blue.
Like Bourbon? 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 $50 bottle of Ridge Zin.

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.
