Walk-On's Bistreaux & Bar
Close proximity to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and Smoothie King Arena along with buy-in from beloved Saints quarterback Drew Brees makes Walk-On’s a fan favorite. A nod from ESPN as the “No. 1 Sports Bar in America” in 2012 doesn’t hurt either. However, if you’re heading here, prepare to wait. Photo courtesy: Walk-On’s Bistreaux & Bar
Happy's Irish Pub
Cool tunes during commercial breaks and shots on Saints touchdowns make Happy’s a fun spot to catch the game. If you can’t make it into Walk-On’s, Happy’s has a spot for you next door. The Irish pub also makes a good hangout after the game. Stick around, and celebrate a win.

Lucy's Retired Surfers Bar & Restaurant
The surf-themed bar in the Warehouse District has traditionally been a Saints team member hangout. Drew Brees has even stopped by to give bar patrons a chant lesson.
