About us

Twelve Mile Limit was founded in 2010, but the bar's history starts a century earlier.

Twelve Mile Limit is a cocktail dive in the heart of Mid-City New Orleans. We serve world-class cocktails in a relaxed neighborhood bar. We opened in 2010, but the building has been a bar since at least the 1920s. We host nightly food pop-ups and regular events. And we love you.
