AKA JAX Brewery.
But dont let the name fool you, its actually a shopping mall. I thought it was an actual brewery because of the signs that advertised alcohol but it turns out that in the 1980's or so they turned this place into a mall. We didnt need to shop so we left.
Jacksons Brewery is over 100 years old and a landmark of New Orleans but ceased to be a brewhouse a long time ago. In 1891 it was the larges independent brewery in the south and the 10th larges single plant brewery in the country. Today the building is a complex of shops, restaurants and entertainment facilities. There are 4 floors of stores as well as breathtaking views of the River and the French Quarter.
