Beer prices

How much does a beer cost in FQ bars? Being from Canada I have no idea of American prices. Sure it's cheaper than here! LOL

Is there a place to buy beer to take back to your hotel room?

Thanks

Like cities everywhere, it depends on the bar and the choice of beer. You might find cheap draft beer available on happy hour specials where you're paying a buck a beer or a bit more. If you're in a restaurant drinking craft beers you might pay $8 a beer or more. It's really hard to say.

Yes. Just a couple. :)

Joes on Dauphine, Sydneys on Decatur, Rouses on Royal and you can get a lot of two for one or three for one deals late afternoon/early evening and pay $3-$4 but its range if about $3.50 to $5.00

And they'll have beer stand windows too that sometimes have cheap American beer like PBR and Bud Light for $1-$2 and 24oz cans 2 for $5. I've paid a s little as $1 and as much as $8 for a Bud Light bottle. It all depends on the time of day, and the place! Abita is plentiful and cheap too since its the local brewed beer of choice!

The yellow fizzy beers (Bud, Miller, Coors) will be plentiful, and as cajunyank mentioned, at happy hour times, cheap.

Expect to pay more for local and craft beers (NOLA, Abita, Tin Roof, Bayou Teche, Lazy Magnolia et al), will run $4 -$6.

However, later in the evening, most of the clubs on Bourbon with live music will charge $5.50-8:00 for beer especially if it is a crowded night. If it is a "light" night, they might continue their 2 for 1 or 3 for 1. Some of the clubs will allow you to bring in a "street" beer or a beer/drink from somewhere else and some will not. If not, then you will have to buy one immediately from their bar. If they do allow you to bring a drink in, then you will be expected to buy one from them when you finish the one you brought with you. There is, however, no cover for the live bands.

In addition to Joe's, Sydney's, Rouses, there are several local, small,deli/markets that sell beer in the Quarter...Matassa's, Nelly Deli, etc. You will have no problem finding plenty!

You can also buy beer at the Walgreens or CVS on Canal Street.
