Our Story

About Us

The Basin Lounge has been West Lakeview’s best kept secret for over 50 years. Named for the New Basin Canal that connected Lake Ponchartrain to downtown New Orleans  The canal was dug by Irish immigrants that needed a place to get a cold beer. Many changes have occurred since then. But the beer is still cold and the Jameson has not stopped flowing since those days. It features a beautiful back courtyard, drink specials, kareoke and very knowledgeable bartenders that you might just know. 


The Basin Lakeview provides a variety of entertainment and can also accommodate for private events.
