Went for the Hurricane... and the glass. Seems a winning formula in NOLA, invent an exclusive drink. It was was nice but not sure it's worth 4600 miles? Saying that though the decor and atmosphere of the piano bar probably are. Pats is hardly noticeable outside, but inside is fantastic I do believe this is a must see bar.

Piano bar in the evening is very entertaining and worth the wait. Less crowded during lunch. Great place to sit and drink with a few friends.

On my last trip to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, my friends wanted to go to Pat Os. I hadn't been there in 20 years, because I considered it a tourist trap. I was pleasantly surprised. The piano bar was a lot of fun with every one putting in their requests for songs and singing along. I'm glad I tried... More

We happened into this place right off Bourbon St. We got there at about 645pm on a Sunday. What a good time to show up. We were able to get a great seat in the piano bar. We were there about 15 minutes and 2 piano players came on and started taking requests. They play for an hour and then... More

We loved the 2 sing along piano players. They were women which made it fun. They took requests and the place was packed. The Hurricanes drink was too strong for me. There was an outside bar and a sports tv bar. You don't go to Pats to eat.

Was not what we expected it to be based on reviews of locals and tourists. It stunk like urine, bartender was rude and the famous "hurricane" was gross and poorly made.

After a long day of walking at a convention, what a great place to sit back relax and have some cocktails with associates. We had the most fun people watching and bantering with the best bartender ever Pierre. Next time we are back on New Orleans we will definately go back and visit Pierre!

Reason #1 To drink Hurricanes Reason #2 To watch people who don't normally drink, drinking Hurricanes and then try to stand up.

And that's saying a lot since we were there through Marti Gras! The piano bar was fantastic, even better than the Hurricanes! Plus, you get to keep the "Pat O'Brien's" Hurricane glass!
