Stopped in twice during my stay and both times had great music. Place was big enough to find a good spot to hear the tunes. Great groups, very enjoyable. Drinks were a bit pricey, but there is no cover. Music is nonstop, one band leaves and another one starts up pretty quick. One follow up band was a bit poor... More

When visiting NOL I always make it a point to visit the Famous Door. The entertainment and venue are a great spot to start the tour of the Quarters. Order a Cherry Bomb or a whole jar!

Enjoyed this bar. Great live music and cold beer. We were there earlier in the day and it wasn't too crowded, but past by later in the night and it was packed!

We stopped in here for a drink and some music. I ordered a vodka cranberry for my wife, and a bottle of Dos Equis for myself. For this we were charged $17.50! Completely ridiculous, even by bourbon street standards. We finished our drinks and got out of there. While we were there, another couple came in, ordered two drinks, had... More

Spent a week in New Orleans recently, and this was one of the better bars I visited. Same live band were playing both nights, when they took a break we were entertained by another chap who sang along to pop songs (this was actually very very entertaining and the chap was pretty hilarious). Staff were all pleasant, although not a... More

we spent about an hour here listening to great music and being entertained by the crowd dancing. The music was outstanding both in quality and the interaction of the band with the crowd. The girls serving the Jell-O shots were friendly and fun to interact with. This is definitely a bar comfortable for couples and single girls as well as... More

This is NOT an exaggeration! Seriously. I visit every time I visit New Orleans. They always have great bands that play '60s and 70s music. The one we saw on Sunday night even had the audacity and pull off brilliantly "Another Brick in the Wall". I have spent hours there before and did the same on Sunday. The fact that... More

We stopped for a beer or two while on Bourbon St, great drink specials and the House Band was great. They had a great house band. Will definately go back.

The favorite bar on Bourbon Street for my wife & I for many reasons but it starts with the house band - THE QUARTNOTES. They are top notch led by lead guitarist Kevin & Keyboard player Roberto. The female lead singer is Miss Rebecca and you wont go wrong with either of the lead male singers - Steve or Ross.... More
