20. Crown and Anchor English Pub
Address: 200 Pelican Ave.
Just about everyone who's been to this English pub in Algiers Point has arrived accidentally. The story usually goes something like this: "I took the ferry across the river and just stumbled upon this place while wandering around." That's exactly how I found it. Last summer, it was hotter than Satan's taint, and I needed a cold beer. When I walked inside, everyone was drunk and dressed in Santa suits, and there were dogs wandering around the place. After serving me a beer, one of the owners offered me some free food they'd cooked for their customers. What more could you ask for?
