Off of bourbon street, the music drew me in. Saw two bands that did cover tunes of popular 70s and 80s music. 2 for 1 drink specials early in the evening. Lots of dancing and crowd participating singing. Fun was had by all. Tip bands.

We enjoy visiting the Famous Door when in New Orleans. We like rock and roll music more than rap or jazz so this place suits us to a T. There is no cover and the drinks are reasonable.

Fantastic band. Music is what drew us in. Drinking, dancing and singing...great combo. 2 for 1 drinks, even better. Then the band took a break. I get it, can't play all night. DJ picked up the slack and the bar became a ghost town. Hung...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

Over a few years, I've been to the Famous Door several times and it seems they have a different band each time. I hope they don't change to Country and Western music!!! Gotta love that good old Rock & Roll!
