We went here the first night of our first trip to NOLA. The craft drinks were very good and the sit down service superb. The bourbon selection, as expected was extensive. Everyone enjoyed the oysters, shrimp and salads. We went here the last night of...More

We were going to Acme Oyster Bar but they were packed. Bourbon House didn't look crowded, so we went there. A table for two would have been a 30 minute wait, so we partnered with another couple waiting for a table and we're seated right...More

If you're looking for a great price for a great lunch in the French Quarter, eat at Bourbon House on Bourbon Street. On weekdays, get an entree with soup/salad and French bread for $9.99. You get a smaller portion but it's really tasty! Go between...More

It's a bourbon lovers version of a kid's candy store! Walking in you're greated to a display of bourbon and a shelf that makes your eyes wander and mouth water. The food is very good, with lots of seafood and Louisiana favorites. A must stop...More

We had been hoping to get into Acme Oyster house but it was too busy. Had no problem getting into Bourbon House (not an indication of quality of restaurant). Big place, good menu, solid service.

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts

Hi Nancy, Unfortunately, Palace Cafe's oyster loaf is not on their "Pop-Up" Jazz Brunch menu. The full "pop-up" menu can be found on the Bourbon House website under the menu tab. Thank you and we hope to see you for Jazz... More
