Mimi's in the Marigny

Top choice bar in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

The name of this bar could justifiably change to ‘Mimi’s is the Marigny’ – it's impossible to imagine the neighborhood without this institution. It's an attractively disheveled place, with comfy furniture, pool tables, an upstairs dance hall decorated like a Creole mansion gone punk, and dim brown lighting like a fantasy in sepia. The bar closes when the bartenders want it to.
