‘The District’ in New Orleans tells The Urban Twist why they are #Twistworthy! “At The District, like true New Orleanians, we cater to our locals… we’ve got food, drinks, fun, entertainment and technology! Locally owned and operated, we invite you to come in and park it on our soft booth-style seating and gaze at our 90″ (yes, we said NINTY INCH) HD big screen TV. ”
What inspired The District?
The District was inspired by the location. The bar embodies the “old meets the new” feel of the New Orleans Warehouse District. Original exposed brick and wood columns was a great canvas for modern flat screen TVs including a 90 inch TV.
What is your favorite part about owning a bar in New Orleans?
It’s definitely the people and being part of all the fun things going on in the city! The owners are native New Orleanians, who live in the Warehouse District, and love the diverse people, both locals, and visitors, who stop by.
What would you say is your best entree on your menu and why?
Our best entrée on our menu is our popular chicken quesadillas. For parties, people enjoy our red beans and rice and jambalaya.
Will you ever delivery?
I don’t think delivery is anything we’re considering because the atmosphere is what makes The District so much fun. We just got mentioned by Where Y’At as a place to see and be seen.
A lot of Saints and Pelicans players live nearby, and when people are in town for Hollywood South films, they usually drop by because it’s a relaxed atmosphere and no one bothers them. We pride ourselves on that!
Will The District be doing anything special for Halloween?
Halloween is HUGE at The District because the Halloween parade passes in front of our hub! It’s pretty insane and brings in loads of costumed people – almost like Mardi Gras. We go all out, so if you’ve never been to the parade, you have to come!
Do your employees get free food and drinks or discounts?
Yes. They get free meals and discounts on drinks. We strive to take very good care of our employees.
What was the funniest event booked at your establishment?
The funniest event we had was a “Stupid Cupid” Valentine’s Day party. It included encouraging our guests to arrive single, a promise of no gift exchange, and a heart-shaped piñata that the girls enjoyed beating the heck out of.
What is the story behind your cocktails for a cause?
The Cocktails for a Cause was started because we wanted to help our many friends who are involved with non-profits and the people who benefit from those non-profits. The owners of District believe it is important to give back.
Does The District have a speciality drink only your bar makes?
The District is best known liquor-wise for having high-end well brands, 12 beers on tap, and fine wines. Our bartenders can make you something special if that’s what you’re after- they enjoy being creative!
How does The District NOLA keep people buzzing about their bar?
We often hear our patrons say that the District feels like their very own “Cheers”.
Our clients are our friends and we want to see them! Keeping people feeling comfortable is our priority and that’s what we believe keeps them coming back. So far, word of mouth is our best advertising.
No doubt there is more competition in the city than ever before, so it’s nice that the District seems to continue to grow yet never lose its original charm.
The District is truly the hub of the NOLA Entertainment environment! It is pet-friendly, smoke-free, has complimentary cell phone charging stations & it is just the coolest sports drinking bar in the city!
