The old Bridge Lounge was a Lower Garden District favorite for many years, and so it was with some expectation that this new incarnation (from the owners of French Quarter restaurant Sylvain) opened its doors in 2014. The bar—cavernous and wood-paneled—puts whiskey and its close relatives to the fore (they have over 150 bottles) as well as a huge selection of beers (around 70), and the cheap and cheerful and expensive and adventurous are all catered to with enthusiasm. There's a basic cocktail list, but customers are gently nudged toward a purer whiskey-drinking experience.
