Spirits Food & Friends

Spirits is not your average restaurant. Since opening on the corner of Texas Ave. and Jackson St in 1967, it has evolved into an Alexandria institution, and a place where you can enjoy great food, great service and great live music in Cenla.

I'm sure you've seen this beauty hanging over our bar. To say this piece of art has been an inspiration for us over the years is an understatement. Thank you Susan Ratcliff Corbyn! Your talents amaze.

We want to reach out to our fellow businesses with support during this aftermath. We were lucky to have not been in the path of destruction, but many of our community businesses and restaurants were.

We are canceling tonight’s Sunset Club, but we are open so please come enjoy the patio and cool weather!

We have a special draft to highlight today by Chandeleur Island Brewing Company . Its a sour ale called Blueberry Crumbles, and it's just as good as it sounds. Its brewed with blueberries, brown sugar, vanilla and spices, helping to give this draft its deep red color.

This unique sour ale won't stick around forever and it demands to be tasted and bragged about.
