From the half-off Happy Hour to the folding lawn chairs on the patio, American Sardine Bar in Point Breeze is the neighborhood spot you wish you lived next door to (or at least down the street from). The menu is mostly sandwiches and seafood, and though their drinks list is heavy on the craft beer, they also make good cocktails. Plus, if you end up closing down the bar one night, this place also serves brunch burritos, tater tots, and Bloody Marys for the morning after.
