This place has been hit or miss over the past years. We heard good live music and gravitated here. The band was playing cover music but they were doing it REALLY well. So we stayed. It's not a hip hop club any more.

My buddy and I had stopped in a couple other places during our visit,and ended up stopping and staying in this bar,as we heard a good band playing inside. After my bud had had quite a... More

Definitely go here to sing, dance, and have fun with the band. Ended up here every night at some point. Lively crowd, good music and no problem walking in with grenades or hurricanes from another spot. Shot girls weren't pushy either. Definitely THE SPOT to go to for fun.

We were drawn into this place by the loud 80s rock and had a blast. 2 for 1 domestic beer and stiff drinks. Great location for people watching, right in the middle of Bourbon St.

We had a great time here! Go ahead, have a shot...not that much alcohol. The cover band was good, but the intermission entertainment was great! Fun, fun, fun, on Bourbon Street.

I really loved the balance between flashbacks and new tunes, and the place offers some good beers and cocktails for the people there at nights.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
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 Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
