Put the stress of school aside and reclaim your love of learning by attending one of New Orleans’ many trivia nights. The wide array of options spans a variety of locations, themes and prizes sure to attract any trivia lover or just someone looking for a night away from Tulane’s campus.


Just a short walk away is Gasa Gasa on Freret Street, which hosts trivia every Monday night at 7 p.m. Entry is free and prizes include free tickets to concerts at the popular music venue.


For a familiar, tried and true establishment, swing by Dat Dog on Freret Street on Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. Some coincide with percentage nights hosted by Tulane organizations, so keep an eye out to show your peers some support.


Mellow Mushroom on Oak Street is a walkable venue that offers trivia every Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. Some trivia nights have themes, which have included Buku Fest and Back to the Future.

If you’re a TV lover, check out the American Sports Bar Saloon Wednesdays at 8:00 p.m. Each trivia session has a TV show theme, from “The Handmaid’s Tale” to “Army Wives” and “Scandal.”


At its location on Willow Street, just past South Carrollton Avenue, Carrollton Station is another nearby option for entertainment-based trivia on Thursdays at 7:00 p.m.


Of course, good trivia is also as close as the Lavin Bernick Center for University Life. Every Saturday night starting at 9 p.m., Tulane After Dark hosts trivia night in City Diner. Prizes include a free legendary City Diner giant pancake.

Grab some friends and head out to one of these locations for a fun way to destress from school while still keeping your mind active.
