Bars full of polo shirts and sports gear aren’t usually promising places to drink, but there’s more to The Rusty Nail—a little wood-sided bar tucked almost directly under the interstate in the Lower Garden District—than originally meets the eye. The bar’s owner is a scotch fanatic and the bar is stocked with a solid collection of craft beer and a giant outdoor space. It’s also New Orleans unofficial Alabama bar, so come Saturdays, it’s “roll tide” or bust.

What to drink
The dangerously refreshing “disco lemonade” is an icy, slushy vodka-and-lemon delight.
The Rusty Nail is an Alabama football bar on game day, so it’s best avoided unless you want to hear a bunch of bros bellow out, “Roll Tide!” for hours.
