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!

When in New Orleans you have to stop by Pat O'Brien's for a hurricane. We were given hats and beaded necklaces upon entering the bar. The bartender was friendly. For the price, it was worth trying. It is a tasty fruity drink that could be dangerous. Next time we will try the food.

We took our visiting southern California friends to Pat O's and they had a great time! They particularly enjoyed and had fun in the bar with the dueling pianos. We also had a drink with the General Manager, Charlie Bateman, who is a charmer!

After visiting the Pat O's at Universal Orlando a couple of years ago celebrating our 22 anniversary and having a great time we thought for our 25th we would go to the original. This turned out to be a complete letdown. The food was not as good and while the service was decent the restaurant was loud and filthy. Unlike... More

While traveling to New Orleans for a service trip to help ten years after Katrina--there is so much left to be done--our group planned an evening outing to relax after a full day of reconstruction work. The group of almost fifty (many returning for the seventh and eighth time) decided we must stop at Pat O'Brien's for a Hurricane (a... More

If you like live music, this is the place. Constant songs from two piano players keeps the mood flowing. Clean, we'll run and safe. The room is full so be prepared for a crowd. Hurricanes are sweet and expensive so be prepared. A go to for us in NOLA'
