Venue Info

Considering Coop's is located in the Quarter, it's impressive that this neighborhood watering hole isn't overrun with tourists, attracting a largely local crowd. The clientele give the divey, exposed-brick space a warm and welcoming feel that complements the comforting Southern menu. On it you'll find NOLA delicacies like seafood gumbo, Cajun fried chicken, shrimp creole, and the standout rabbit & sausage jambalaya, which you can (and should) make “supreme” by adding shrimp and tasso. Just stopping in for drinks? There's a couple of local craft beers on offer (plus a limited lineup of domestic and imported brews) and your standard well cocktails.
