Past Events

While Checkpoint Charlie's is not technically on Frenchmen Street, this all-hours outpost is just around the corner of the jumping bar district. Checkpoint’s is the downtown-most outpost of the local empire of Igor’s bars; like all of them, it’s open around the clock and offers pool, pinball, coin laundry and a grill serving up burgers and cheese fries at all hours. Bands play nightly, and the schedule varies from acoustic country to hip-hop to hardcore punk rock.

Location: 501 Esplanade Ave., 504.281.4847.

Open: 24 hours. Parking: Metered street and pay lot nearby.

Prices: Beer: $2.50-up, wine: $4-up, cocktails: $3-up.

Crowd: Changes with the hour; tourists lounge in the cool darkness during the day, while in the wee hours, service-industry folks shoot pool and do laundry after work.
