This was the first place I went to get a drink the first time I landed on Bourbon street, and I was back there 4 times after I left. The patio is great, the service is smooth! The evenings "drinkers" and "eaters" are split up and the party really gets started. All ages are here at night, and it can... More

Place hasn't changed in thirty years. That was a good thing. Loved the piano bar. Had an excellent photo taken by the roving photographer.

Pat O'Briens has been a regular stop on our annual New Orleans visit for years... The pianists seem to know every song requested and patrons sing with Hurricane fueled gusto, A couple bucks always seemed to insure a request would make it. And maybe that's where one thug sized staffer got his cue. My wife was first through to the... More

The patio was great. A bit cold outside when my friends and I went. They had heaters everywhere so even at 50 degrees outside it was comfortable to sit down and hang out with friends. The hurricanes are good of that's the type of drink you go for. Their Sazaracs, however, are the best I've had. Made perfectly each time... More

Some places don't change and Pat O'Brian's piano bar is one of those. It is crowded, but that is part of the atmosphere and fun, lots of interactions among guests. Piano players/singers are talented and so interactive with the crowd, taking requests (by tips of course). It is packed with young folks, but there are older folks too as we... More

Have to stop here just for the hurricane! Don't go on an empty stomach. Drinks are strong! Very pretty inside garden area.

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
