Just skip the hurricanes and come straight here. Get the hand grenade frozen or the horny gator on the rocks. Both do the trick but they'll also sneak up on you! The atmosphere is so much more fun and exciting, and the bartenders/bouncers are much...More

Cheap, super strong drinks in a fun location. Bartenders are nice although busy. There are multiple locations along Bourbon Street. Try a hand grenade AND a shark attack!
