My dad and me exactly experienced the same thing as the other one star review... (also experienced by many other guys according to Yelp and Google reviews..) We were in New Orleans for the Thanksgiving week-end and we had the wrong idea to enter this awful placeon thanksgiving night. After 20 minutes in there, a shot girl came to us... More

I like the band here - they play great music and the singers do a good job - I agree with the previous reviewer who said Steve and Rebecca (along with the rest of the band) do a great job entertaining. Overall, nice bar to sit back and listen to nice sets. What bothered me was one of the sales... More

The shot girls not only sexually assaulted us (3 guys and a girl) but told a bouncer we ordered shots that we never ordered. Worst bar experience I've ever had and the bouncing staff told us how he knew the schemes of the shot girls and there was nothing we could do. They took our ID's so we couldn't fly... More

The Famous Door is my favorite bar on Bourbon Street. The cover band is always excellent. Fantastic music. There is always a lot of energy in the bar. There are two bar areas and a beer trough to satisfy your drinking habit. No cover charge. Beers are $7.00. I always have a great time here. Enjoy.

We had a great night out at the Famous Door. Drinks are reasonably priced and the live band was great. Awesome music from all eras. The shot girl was a bit obnoxious but she did get some laughs and make some money for the establishment. One of my favorite places to visit on every NOLA trip.

We spent a few hours at the Famous Door this past weekend and we had a great time. We were able to snag a few bar stools and watched the LSU/Alabama game. It was easy to get in, space to breathe, and the band there was amazing!

We like to listen and dance to good music. The house band(Night Moves) is outstanding. Very good musicians, play well to the audience. They keep the dance floor full. We ended up here 3 times during our 7 day stay. Halloween night was crazy crowded. We never lacked for service attention. The staff was very pleasant and engaging. With all... More

You wanna dance, drink and laugh!? Go here. We had a blast. It's very popular so don't expect to sit and have an intimate conversation, but if you want a good time-GO!
