Corporation Bar & Grill New Orleans Reviews
Fun old style Bar & Grill in New Orleans - The Corporation ;) Jan 30, 2008
The Corporation is a small bar, which could be called a "hole in the wall". I know it's dark, but it's cozy! It's located 10 blocks away from the famous French Quarter, which makes that this place is visited mostly by locals.
A friend works there and we went to meet here. My first impression was that this place was so dark and looked like a cavern, but that was just a impression. I loved this place and came here everytime I'm in the city ever since.
Let's talk about the food here. There's nothing special about it: It's a dive bar with a po-boy shack in the back. They don't have a lot of things on the menu, but what is there is made just right. Well, I went right before Mardi Gras and they had a delicious Crawfish boil!
And now the drinks, they serve different drinks and of course beer which is much cheaper compared to the ones sold in the French Quarter. So you can start drinking here and then move to the French Quarter or just stay here ;)
This place doesn't look fancy at all, I believe the sign outside names this place "Corporation 931", there's no pomp or splash ad. A second weathered sign warns that politicians are not welcome. Perhaps one of the more charming elements is a 70s style pencil or charcoal sketch of the bartender at a younger age, hanging on the wall behind the bar.
The people who work there are very friendly and will smile and engage you in conversation easily. They are down to earth folks, and have no pretense.
This place is 100% New Orleans. Just walk in and take a deep breath, you can smell it. I'll suggest you to visit it if you are in the neighborhood.
