Go to the piano room and have a blast singing along with some gruff voiced ladies! Wonderful. The drinks are sugary but they will bring you straight whiskey if you ask. TIP your singers!

Pat O'Brien's is a great place for smaller groups. When you have a big group it becomes messy. Drinks are lethally strong!

Great place but you have to either know where the piano bar is or ask... Its hidden in the back - and the best part. Had tons and tons of fun singing along with the two piano players. Drinks were fantastic, crowd was fun, waitstaff was friendly. Would love to go back and would highly recommend it!

We visited Pat O'Brien's twice during our recent stay in New Orleans, we had 2 nr $50 gift cards as part of our WWE Wrestlemania Travel Package. After a long wait to be seated on both visits we placed orders for Chicken wings and Burgers, only one plate of wings turned up. We asked our server where the other portion... More

Good food (I really enjoyed the Irish muffeletta), okay drinks, but fun fun fun! I was surprised to see that the famous Hurricanes are made in advance, just add ice. We walked into the to go bar, but got sucked in for food and music.

You cannot beat the atmosphere here. It is so casual at night . I did not eat here but I regret it cause I was told food was great. The drinks are strong and you get to take home the souvenir glass and they wrap it for you and box it up. I could live here

Enjoy the nightlife and piano bar with family and friends without the worry of nearby influences. Good drinks and fair prices considering the option for souvenir glasses.

My husband and I love piano bars, so this was a must! We arrived just before 8pm and got a table. Cocktail service at the table was awesome, but you get a little more drunk than expected because you aren't standing up. Souvenir Hurricane glasses are yours to take or return them to the bar for $3 cash back on... More

My husband and I went here several nights at various times during our stay and really enjoyed it. Of course the hurricane is the only drink you should drink here and sip it slowly. Great entertainment and go early (1st show is at 6 p.m.) as it gets crowded and louder the later you get there. We were there before... More
