Let’s face, there are only three reasons to go to New Orleans: The booze, the music, and the food. Everything else is secondary, especially on a bachelor party. A trip to NOLA is not complete without tasting local flavors from jambalaya, red beans and rice, gumbo, po’ boys, and a few other dishes you cannot get at McDonald’s. Sure, you may think the red beans and rice you cook up for yourself each night at home-- since you can’t cook anything else-- is pretty tasty, but you If you’re looking to try all New Orleans has to offer in the way of tasty delectables, and impress your friends with your knowledge to boot, then unpretentious, laid back Coop’s (Coops) is your spot.

This place was made for a bachelor party crew that craves great food, quick service, an affordable tab, and the freedom to act like men (no children allowed). Think of it like the New Orleans version of Cheers, where everybody knows your name (once you tell them)-- but where no one will offer your sarcastic remarks if you tell a bad joke.

Sidle up to this dive, grab a few cold beers, and get ready for deliciousness.

Venue Tip: 

If you want to try the best of the best, order the duck quesadilla and Coop’s Taste Plate. They’re big enough that you can probably even share those with someone if you’re really pinching pennies (so you’ll have enough cash to buy more red beans and rice back home).

The Good: 
Feels like a hidden gem, this joint is dive central (you can wear what you want), inexpensive, and has outstanding food.
The Bad: 
Small and dark, you’ll swear the cast of True Blood dines here regularly. Not that we watch that show or anything.
