Try the Hurricane Drink!

Walked in on a Friday night. Great ambiance! Crowded, but fun! Beautiful old decor. I loved the fountain with the fire burning in the middle. This is located in the courtyard.

If you're coming to New Orleans at any time of day, get a Hurricane at Pat O'briens. You can have lunch here too, but after you have your beignets, go get a hurricane, it's a short walk. Everyone knows about hurricanes, doesn't matter if it's your first trip or 100th. And yes you will notice the alcohol in there.

This is hands down the best place in New Orleans to get a hurricane. Every time I visit New Orleans I have to come here, I love the dueling piano show and the staff is amazing. It is one of my favorite places to lounge about and get away from the crazy crowds on Bourbon street.

Fun times hanging out in the courtyard. Something about the place makes one relax and let loose! If you don't mind a smelly atmosphere, this is a must visit

The courtyard at Pat O's is a must-do. I'm not a huge fan of the flavor of their Hurricane's, although there is plenty of alcohol in them. Other bar drinks are great there. The shrimp creole ($15) is spicy and chock full of shrimp...very tasty. The $12 burger is good and very filling. Prepare to buy the specialty glassware ($3)... More

The hurricane drinks were a little weak, but the ambiance was neat. there were several different sections that you could sit at. They had attentive service and no cover charge.

This place is a must do for us when we come to New Orleans. The drinks are strong, the setting is very classy, the piano bar is a blast and you can take home an awesome Pat O'Briens glass for only $3! We bought an entire set of glasses for our home bar. Best time to go is for dinner... More

Pats was a great place for an out-of-towner. I enjoyed the piano dual, the hurricane(s), the buzz that lasted til 2 am, and the fun atmosphere. I wish the staff were a bit friendlier, however. They seemed grumpy for the most part, and two separate staff members were rude to my friends. That's inappropriate at an entertainment venue and the... More

Hurricane's at Pat O'Brien's is a New Orleans tradition and well worth a trip into the French Quarter to enjoy. We had a large party and waiter Joe B. helped us from the moment we stepped in and started putting tables together till the moment we staggered out after slightly too much celebrating. There are lots of places to go... More
