My name is the Homedale Inn Bar. I'm a neighborhood bar in New Orleans. I was established on August 25, 1937. I'm the oldest operating business in Lakeview. I've been around for quite a while but I'm in good health and plan to be here for a lot longer.
Over the years I've had a few different caretakers. Currently Perry and Bob oversee the operation. I've survived many disasters. Several hurricanes, floods, and bad economies have tried to take me down, but I've survived them all and came back stronger than ever. Hurricane Katrina tried to drown me with seven feet of water. I survived!
In my early days I would book my friends' bets on horses and sports. Today I have video poker. Come try your luck.
My friends used to cloud up the air with their cigarette, cigar and pipe smoke but in April, 2015 the City of New Orleans prohibited smoking inside bars. We accomodate our smoking friends on our outdoor covered patio and plenty of outdoor seating in front.
My floor is still cracked and tilts towards the street, thanks to Lakeview's subsidence. This just helps my friends get to the front door easier when they are leaving.
I've adapted to the modern world pretty well. Even though I look almost the same as I did way back when, I now offer my friends multiple High Def TV's and show all of the Saints, Pelicans, and LSU games. For most of the games I'll have some yummy free food so check my Facebook page often. When you visit bring your computer or use your phone on my free high speed WiFi.
I have some special events each week:
Sunday - Saint's Football / Service Industry Night
Monday - Monday Night Football / Service Industry Night
Tuesday - Dart Leagues
Wednesday - 8:30 pm Homedale World Famous Trivia Night
Friday - TGIF
Saturday - All your college and pro sports on multiple HD TV's
For the past 80 years one thing hasn't changed. My sociable and attentive staff makes sure that all of our friends are treated like family. My current staff of Randy, Jen, Gabby, Phil, Amber, Penny, and Lynanne love to make sure all of our friends enjoy themselves.
Come on over and enjoy a cold beer or drink and some great times with all of your friends at the Homedale Inn Bar!
