Need somewhere to watch the Saints game? Here are some of the best neighborhood bars

Here's a list of places we love to watch the Saints games at, where the drinks flow and the atmosphere is almost as good as being in the Dome.

We’ve been waiting months for it…football season is BACK!

While the sting isn’t healed from last season (please, don’t tell us to get over it), this year is another chance to make it all right again.

Here’s a list of places we love to watch the Saints games at, where the drinks flow and the atmosphere is almost as good as being in the Dome:

MID-CITY

Finn McCool’s – This Irish pub is also known as the city’s premier soccer hub. There are several TV’s around the pub so no matter were you are, you’ll get a good view, and even a 8’4″ projection screen.

Revolution – The music during the games is great and there’s a huge projection screen inside and outside, depending on the weather. There’s also outdoor seating, in case the bar area get too tight, which it usually does during games.

Don Villavasso’s – This cigar bar doubles as a good spot to watch games, with four tv’s outside facing the outdoor seating. Since it’s usually a cigar bar, the food choices are more upscale, including shrimp cocktail, ribeye, or glazed salmon.
