Bouligny Tavern

Bar in Uptown & Riverbend

Sexy lighting, Mad Men decor, inventive cocktails and an extensive wine list – it all comes together in a lively, flattering tableau. A fashionable addition to the Magazine St bar scene, Bouligny draws after-work crowds and those prepping their palate for a meal at chef John Harris’ companion restaurant, Lilette, next door.

The small plates are divine, particularly the bruschetta and the gouda beignets. You don’t like gin? Try one of their gin cocktails – we're guessing you'll change your mind. This low-key hideaway is in a house fronted by a live oak, and it’s easy to miss. Look for the alluringly lit alleyway patio.
