Madigan's is a classy local bar, well known for its' draft beer served in frosted mugs. The scene changes a bit depending on what time of year you visit. There are always a good deal of locals frequenting Madigan's but a good size college crowd when school is in. Still a college crown in the summer but mostly local kids... More

Madigan's is known mainly as a college hang out, and I guess that's true to a certain extent. On weekend nights you will find a younger crowd here, but it doesn't get as crazy as other college bars in the area. As of late, I have been meeting friends here in the late afternoon/early evening for post-work drinks. The bar... More

Like Cheers only in the Big Easy. Even met Burke Madigan. The burger was so tasty and the beer cold and fairly priced. Lots of sports on tv. Lots of families and children. Really enjoyed this place

This place is soooo great for a group of friends. The big windows were all open, the juke box was jammin and the drinks were great. The bar food is awesome as well. Stop in, it's a great place to be.

Very surprised to be writing the first review for Madigan's because this is a very solid neighborhood bar. Went in with my 9 friends on a Saturday night and immediately found a large table near the window, and with a great view of the TV to watch my beloved Boston Celtics play the 76ers. The service was quick and friendly,... More

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighbourhood Profile
Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the students living in the area ensure that Uptown and Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
