The Old Point Bar: a “Dog”gone Great Time!

The Old Point Bar, just a short trip across the Mississippi on the ferry, is one of the best kept secrets in New Orleans. Located in Algiers, the Old Point has a great selection of beers and is dog-friendly to boot! It’s housed in an old dry goods store that is over one hundred years old, which helps give it that true New Orleans feeling, inside and out.
