About Us

What's Our Story?

It Started, Quite Simply, Like This...

Bayou Wine Garden is a neighborhood wine bar and kitchen in Mid City, New Orleans. Just like our adjoining sister bar, Bayou Beer Garden, we seek to provide a casual atmosphere and a large selection at a price point that welcomes and excites both experts and novices. Whether you know a lot about wine and cheese and charcuterie, or not much at all, we hope that the relaxed ambience, approachable menus, and friendly staff will provide everyone with an easy and enjoyable experience!

OUR VITALS

Bayou Wine Garden is located at 315 N. Rendon Street in Mid City, New Orleans. Our phone number is (504) 826-2925 and our email address is bayouwinegarden@gmail.com. We are open on Sunday - Thursday from 11am-11-pm and on Friday - Saturday from 11am-12am.

OUR BAR

The wine menu features a variety of old and new world styles at various price points, with options by the glass, bottle, or carafe. Mirroring the 21 rotating beers on tap at Bayou Beer Garden, our wine-on-tap system allows for 32 rotating wines to be offered for an individual or a group, all with lower price points and higher maintained quality. A full bar rounds it out with a fun cocktail menu, making your options seemingly endless.

OUR KITCHEN

The kitchen features a variety of house made charcuterie and salami ranging from fresh pates to cured meats and sausages, along with a large selection of international cheeses, and a smattering of appetizers, sandwiches, flat breads, and salads. Whether you’re in the mood for the spicy soft-cured Nudja of Southern Italy, some creamy French duck liver mousse, a piece of Cajun-style alligator tasso, or a slice of Spanish-style ham, the charcuterie and salami selections span the gamut and change regularly, and include often-overlooked ingredients like seafood.  A wide range of dishes is offered to suit any palate, and please even the health-conscious or vegetarian guest. Even those with a sweet tooth can indulge in desserts like our house-made macaroons and wine ice cream!

OUR ATMOSPHERE

At the front of the old Mid-City shotgun double, the curving oval bar, designed to enhance small-group interactions, provides views into the open kitchen. A secluded booth nicknamed "The Snug", seats up to 10 people, and provides a more intimate setting for small groups and is available for private parties. The back of the building provides more seating options, with large windows and French doors allowing a lovely view of the courtyard below – so when the weather isn’t as pleasant, you can still enjoy the look of outside with the comfort of climate control. When the weather turns lovely, however, you can continue out onto a covered deck overlooking the old-world courtyard and second bar, complete with lush vegetation and the gentle splashing sounds of fountains, inspired by the traditional courtyards of the French Quarter.

With a bridge that connects the courtyard of Bayou Wine Garden to the deck of Bayou Beer Garden, your options range from wine and cheese to burgers and beer, ensuring something for everyone.
