The Schooner is the nexus of drinkeries, the boozy intersection of three neighborhoods: hip, eclectic Seward; the residential, quiet Longfellow; and the funky, gritty East Lake Street. Too many bars seem to attract just one crowd; the Schooner seems to attract them all. It's got the oldest liquor license in the city, and as the screen door slams behind you, that fact is readily apparent. Two bars sandwich the stage, where live rhythm and blues will have you wondering whether you've crossed a space-time continuum into vintage New Orleans. The Schooner brings you this pleasure six nights a week, always cover-free. The $3.75 drink specials rotate during the week, except on Friday when it's free hot dog night. It makes good fuel for your dancing feet, or your billiards prowess, or just for holding up the bar, Prohibition style. The folks at Schooner have been doing it since 1932.
