Outside of the downtown area the McKinley Street Strip historically catered to a university crowd within walking distance. Other venues and establishments are found dispersed along Johnston Street, in and around River Ranch, along Ambassador Caffery, the Simcoe Street Strip and also a scattered collection of neighborhood dives and watering holes.

Louisiana state law decrees that these containers are considered a "closed container" so long as they have tape across the flap to ensure that drinking and driving does not occur.
