Another soccer question for tomorrow (Sunday)

Ok, I tried to add to a previous thread and my wifi petered out--anywho, arriving in NO tomorrow and my 14 and 16 year old girls NEED to watch the soccer game-and we likely won't be checked in at the hotel yet-teens allowed in the bars midday or other suggestions on where to watch? Thanks!

It would depend on the bar. If the bar has gaming machines (video poker) then by law minors can't be allowed in.

Otherwise, I would say most places "probably" would allow minors in during the day to watch soccer. But it really depends on the particular establishment. Do you have a specific place(s) in mind?

Where are you staying? Are you looking for somewhere close to your hotel?

I have suggested Turtle Bay on Decatur to a few people here... My friend and co-owner has a 6 and 8 year old who are always there... Give it a try. Sometimes if the crowd is too big, they start to card and keep underagers out, but if it isn't too bad, you might be able to bring them in and sit at tables as long as you order food!

Just about every bar in NOLA has a TV.

Crescent City Brewhouse is probably the best place in the FQ to watch sports. They have plenty of TV's on second floor.

Crescent City Brewhouse @ 527 Decatur St., New Orleans, LA. 504 - 522 - 0571.

Johnny White's is a true sports bar. Turtle Bay is a sports bar also. Chateau Moanet Voila Bar is a sports bar. Broussard's has TV's in their bar and from time to time they have specials to eat and watch the game. Antoine's Herme's Bar has food and TV's.

Johnny White's Sports Bar @ 720 Bourbon St., New Orleans, LA 504 - 524 - 4909.

Go to the corner of Bienville and Decatur. Club Decatur or Ryan's Irish Pub have TV's but neither is a sports bar. Both are great places to watch games with a lot of big screen TV's. Duck into one and then the other and decide which one your like.

Call the Carousel Bar at The Monteleone I think they have TV's. It's smoke free.

Carousel Bar @ Hotel Monteleone| @ 214 Royal St., New Orleans, LA. 504 - 523 - 3341.

Walk across Canal on N Peters and go W on S Peters 4/5 blocks to the corner of Lafayette and S Peters to Ernst Cafe which is over 100 years old for good happy hour. They have outdoor tables. Ernst's has 2 # crawfish plates for $5.00 on Friday's. When you leave Ernst's go W a block to Girod and go N 2 blocks to Lucy's Bar on Tchoupitoulas for a good 4 to 7 happy hour and $2.50 beer. Grand Isle is a fine seafood restaurant and raw bar a block S of Ernst's on Fulton.

Lucy's Bar @ 701 Tchoupitoulas St., New Orleans, LA 504 - 523 - 8995.

I would NOT take kids into Johnny White's whether they allowed it or not. Not that I have seen anything particularly egregious there, but it is a smoky dive bar, not a place I would take my kids or grandkids. I think I have seen gaming devices in there so it is probably a moot point.

Not familar with all the bars Axle suggested, but I am familar with Gordon Biersch in other cities, (it is a chain), and at all the locations I have been, kids would be fine.

Wound up at Corners (st. Louis and Decatur)-they had the game on 3 tvs and we hung out there for the whole sad affair. Nice place! Spent some $ to compensate for taking a table (but they still had open tables) and our waiter was outstanding. Drinks were good but $12 for a Long Island-ouch! The cheapskate in me will be leaning towards beer from here on!

Thanks for the suggestions-I missed some until after the fact but still appreciate it. And yes, Johnny Whites (?) had the game on but kids were definitely not welcome.

Only been here about 5 hours and I'm already in love....
