Coach's Corner - If you're planning on wearing sneakers, hoodies or any other casual apparel, you should probably go to another lounge. Coach's Corner, located at [Address] prides itself on being selective at the door. So if you don't look good, you probably aren't getting in.

Caddy Corner, located at [Address], is your garden variety pub. It's not going to win any raves of "Hottest. Bar. Ever.," but it's a serviceable place to relax and unwind. Just keep your expectations grounded. And there's something to be said for beers that cost less than $14 bucks. Review of Caddy Corner.

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.

House Of Blue Light
(504) 837-7655
3409 Lausat St
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.)

Daiquari Den
(504) 832-9912
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.

C Beevers
(504) 887-9401
2507 N Woodlawn Ave
Metairie, LA
C Beevers - Let's call it what it is. C Beevers, at [Address], is a good place to pull. The crowd is good looking and the ambiance is sexy, so if you can't meet someone here, well, keep drinking and try again. Liquid courage always helps. Look, we're not guaranteeing anything, but at C Beevers you should have plenty of options.
