Igor's Checkpoint Charlie
Made famous by its use as background scenes in the filming of John Grisham's Pelican Brief, this busy corner bar called Igor's Checkpoint Charlie is a popular local watering hole. For entertainment you may shoot pool, listen to a blues or rock band, or utilize their paperback library. An added bonus is the laundromat that they worked right into the pub. Grab a drink and take a "load off" while you hang out to "dry" during the "spin cycle".
My band was playing a few blocks away at the Always Lounge and we swung by Checkpoint Charlie's for a bite before the show. At first I was disappointed, since I was craving an oyster po'boy and some redbeans, but all I needed to know was learned one bite into the Cajun Burger. I was blown away. The place is about as dive as you can get, but the music's good, the bartender was friendly, and the burger was out of this world. I'll definitely be going back the next time I'm playing in the neighborhood.
This was a place like no other... From the first intimidating impression to realizing this place was filled with a home town spirit and fun. Everyone was very kind and made you feel as if this was your hangout. All the bands are great and approachable. The food is good. Definitely a must visit and experience.
I like the fact that no matter where you stand you can always see and hear the band. Plus the foods not bad.Plus I like the fact that I know any given night I can go there and hear good music, Its like a guaranteed good time!
A cool place with a great band the night I was there. The Chronomatics are young guys with original music that rocked the place. I'll go back! A super crowd and a place to dance. Does it get any better?
great if you are sick of bourbon st and you want some local music. we saw the mountain sprouts and i was laughing so hard i almost fell off my barstool. we had a great time. we go there everytime we visit. you are guaranteed to have a blast and catch some great music.
anja and joe.
This place was wonderful. I really ejoyed the band that was playing "THE HANGOVER OUTLAWS". I definitely recommend this place to others and my friends and I will be there every Thursday to watch the "Hangover Outlaws".
