Both of our parents had visited Pat O'Brien's so we had to continue the tradition. We went to the piano bar which seemed a little groovy at first but after a couple of hurricane's we were having a blast.

Always have a night here when in NOLA. It's a must if you like music, singing and enjoy a cocktail or two. The dueling piano players are really great to watch and they take requests. A mixture of songs is played, usually ones that you can sing a long to which creates a real fun atmosphere. Most of the bar... More

And I don't mean Katrina! Great atmosphere and great drinks. In town for a work trip and was told I HAD to visit - so I 'buzzed' by.

Um. I got a hurricane because it's what you do. It was pre-made and it appeared the bartender poured it into a cup that was already used (had pink liquid dripping on the insides!) It was sickly sweet and strong. Not terrible though. Maybe better off trying somewhere that muses it fresh with real juice.

We went looking for the best bloody marys in the quarter...Pat O Briens did not disappoint. We rated it in the top 5. Lafittes was also a great maybe even better. But smoking on the patio at Pat's was a bummer. And they will sell you everything from t-shirts to shot glasses and give you the bar menu (if that's... More

We got in without a wait on a Saturday night thanks to a local we met. Got a great table for 6 right up near the piano stage. The experience was GREAT! Drinks were fabulous! Ambiance was AMAZING! Definitely a place you must go to when visiting the quarter. Wish there was a service that would deliver your keepsakes from... More

Happened by Pat O'Brien's while exploring the French Quarter, decided to come back that night to check it out. Had several different mixed drinks, including a mint julip, all delicious. There are several different areas of Pat O'Brien's including an outdoor patio, the highlight was the room with the dueling piano players, this room was crowded but we managed to... More

Of course you must have the Hurricane, but they make a damn fine sazerac as well. This is a great to just sit and relax. There are three bars here, each with different prices; the courtyard bar, the piano bar, and the original bar. The original bar entered off of St. Peter's is the cheapest of the three. This is...

We went twice during our 4 day trip. The first visit we sat at the outdoor bar. Hurricanes followed by Cyclones. The bar staff wasn't overly friendly, but I think that was due to training a new bar tender. Oh, and if sitting outside, don't mind the rat that may crawl up the railing behind you. Sort of amazed that... More
