We spent a couple of long afternoons in Famous Door and had a terrific time each day. The house band was an excellent rock cover band and their line-up changed a bit each time. The drinks are a bit pricey but they're strong. The atmosphere is fun and the setting comfortable.

Seriously, if you have a bad time in this bar. Its not the bar, its you. Its impossible not to enjoy yourself here. We had 3 fantastic nights on our short visit to NOLA and we have been here before and had an amazing time. Its just a good ole' fashioned New Orleans bar with a Rock'n Roll and band... More

My favorite music venue on Bourbon Street! Great variety of rock, classic rock, and blues rock. I always stop in this place every visit! Bands are great and drinks are not too expensive! Check it out!

and music. A fun crowd, just avoid the shots girls with their test-tube shots! Definitely music and dancing for the over 30 crowd - which we are!

This is a really neat place. We go there every time we're in the Quarter. I think the house band (an eighties cover band) is one of the best around.

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.
