A brewery from the days when New Orleans was the beer capital of the South, was remodeled in the 1980s. Jax Brewery, as it's commonly known, is home to a three-section shopping-and-entertainment complex and caters mainly to tourists with national clothing chains and souvenir shops. The local retailer Perlis, however, brings Uptown New Orleans style, and its crawfish-logo Polo-style shirts, to the masses with its Cajun Clothing Co. store here. The outside features multilevel
terraces wth sweeping views of the Mississippi River. Inside, there's a small museum that preserves the history of the brewery along with several casual restaurants, although better dining options are found elsewhere.
