cool place, mixed crowd. The bartenders are awesome! They hook it up when you order shots... The variety of dj's (typically they have at least 2 dj's some days they open up the upstairs room and there's another dj in there... So you get the variety of 3 different dj's and the opportunity to change scenery if the dj isn't playing anything good... And sometimes that happens. I love that i have found another chill spot where I can have some drinks, shake my ass and wear flats! That's a dream for tall girls like me... It's a toss up on weather your gonna get breathing room or not... I've been there several times on both Friday and Saturday and haven't really seen a pattern on what night is the most crackin... Im gonna say Saturday. They were gonna loose a star bc they charge a cover... But they made it up with the stiff drinks that are fairly priced. Get on over to brunos.. Sure beats goin to the club.

Went on a Saturday night and had an alright time. Brought my own crew and didn't need to worry about the male skewing crowd ratio and often older folks around me. Latin and Hip Hop was spun well and kept me dancing the whole night. Both rooms are actually next to each other and very easy to navigate, major props. Decent amount of couch space to relax was also key. Tip: Go to their main website and get yourself on a the house guest list before 8p the night of, you and your guests will get in free. Not worth paying the $10 dollar cover. The decor comes off as grungy and somewhat outdated. Not the place I would suggest to have your birthday or bring a date unless you're just trying to dance the night away.

Knowing next to nothing about the food or culture of New Orleans, perhaps I'm not the ideal demographic for Parish. Then again, most of the people there seemed to be random yuppies out for drinks and snacks. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Personally, I found Parish to be an inviting, fun, delicious place. The service was chipper and understanding of the fact that the place is still relatively new, everything I had tasted great and the marketplace downstairs was a bonus. They stock an ample wine selection and many kinds of (mostly Abita) beer. I will return. No complaints.
