Metairie, LA
House Of Blue Light - Twenty dollar cover? Nope. Celebrities? None. House Of Blue Light is nowhere near the pages of Us Weekly or TMZ, but hey, beer is beer, whiskey is whiskey. A friendly neighborhood bar where you can pretty much wear whatever the hell you want. (But leave the cargo-shorts at home.)

2701 Airline Dr
Metairie, LA
Daiquari Den - It has it all: a swank atmosphere, attractive crowd, and cheap drinks. Okay, okay, so maybe it doesn't have cheap drinks, but Daiquari Den is still a solid lounge. Not really a dance club, per se, but perfect more a more upscale option.

Fulco Bar & Seafood

519 N Turnbull Dr
Metairie, LA
Fulco Bar & Seafood - Some bars are legendary. The kind of watering hole that you'll remember for most of your life. Fulco Bar & Seafood? It's not one of them. Located at [Address], it's pretty much your vanilla bar. Which isn't a bad thing.

Players Pub
(504) 885-6853
2012 Clearview Pkwy
Metairie, LA
Players Pub - If you're planning on wearing sneakers, hoodies or any other casual apparel, you should probably go to another lounge. Players Pub, located at [Address] prides itself on being selective at the door. So if you don't look good, you probably aren't getting in.

(504) 456-0862
4520 S I 10 Service Rd W
Metairie, LA
Pair-Of-Dice Lounge - They could have easily filmed a scene from "Sex in the City" here. With its posh décor and sexy, dimly-lit interior, Pair-Of-Dice Lounge makes for a killer date spot. Located at [Address], it's a little classier than the pub down the corner.

Bar Strainer - Used in a lot of cocktail recipes to stain out ice that might have been used to cool ingredients in a recipe. It looks like a little paddle with lots of round rings on the end.

Lemon/Lime Squeezer - This has a flat collector base with a raised pointed section in the middle with ridges. Its used to squeeze out fresh lemon or lime juice.

There are over 20 different styles of glasses from brandy to wine. Did y...
