Owners of Scottish bar Shoolbred's draw inspiration from the Bayou State for this venture, serving seasonal Louisiana Abita draught beers and creating a menu with Cajun classics like shrimp po'boys and muffuletta. But don't expect Bourbon Street-esque, bead-tossing revelers at this subterranean bar. A blackboard with sloppy chalk writing and a small table draped in a gingham tablecloth marks the otherwise anonymous entrance, and the din of the crowd confronts you before your eyes adjust to the dark interior, where wood from the 1800s panels the walls. Dim lighting, shuttered windows, and velvet-curtained booths suggest the dark voodoo aura of the French Quarter. A single waiter means slow service, so settle in at the bar to sip specialty cocktails like the Laura Palmer, named for Arnold's illegitimate daughter, or other inventive twists on southern staples. A boisterous Friday-night crowd, punk-rock soundtrack, and bathrooms labeled sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll clash with the overall vibe, but go during happy hour on a weeknight and you'll avoid the rambunctious weekend scene, plus there's two-for-one beers and well drinks on the outdoor patio.
