From the street the 80's rock music drew us in the door. The bar needs to fix a few of their rocking tables. But the vibes were good. Prices average.

Wonderful band plays 12 - 8pm Monday & Tuesdays. ...we didn't intend it but we stayed the entire afternoon enjoying their music. The smiling drummer, our "too cool for school" singer & our wild singer amazing base player was very entertaining. Then adding in the DJ for a song here & there was altogether a great experience :-D

Stopped in here on the Friday night before the 4th of July. It was packed and jamming! The band, KaNection, was playing and they were rocking the house. It was standing room only, so we didn’t stay for very long. There was one bar stool near where we were standing so I grabbed it and copped a squat for part... More

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
