Nice bar, good music, good selection of cheap shots, and a good selection of attractive people to dance with. :-)

Went to enjoy the music and a venue we had once visited and were so disappointed. Rude little chick at the back bar and they don't have BUD LIGHT? Who doesn't have that? We took 2 Abita's although we asked for one and they were both HOT for 12.00. I hate the bars of the French Quarter and this just... More

I've been in New Orleans for two days and come here twice already with my boyfriend. The love band is awesome and the atmosphere is great. Our bartender has been great. She's friendly and on top of things and has been helpful with suggestions of what to do while in town. This is a great, chill place for some drinks... More

They play Thursday-Saturday starting at 7:30 (unless it has changed). We would go every night and stay as long as they were playing. One of the best 80's bands I have ever heard!!!!! One word of caution - the beer is VERY expensive. We ordered two bottles and it was $14. The next night we stopped before we got there... More

The band was great....but William Pipers's "between set" show was the highlight of my time there! The wait staff was very attentive!

I've been in this places few times in different years. I came back there this time and one more time I left with a great feeling of how good music this bands play. At some point I believe a see some of the crowd enthusiasts also singing but I thing they were well known by the band as they did... More

Found this awesome bar on my first night. Bands were awesome playing a great mix off music. At one point the lead singer said "Let's take it up a notch" to which one of my friends exclaimed "There's another notch?!" Great happy hours and the bar staff were friendly. Love this place.

This was by far our first choice in pubs on Bourbon Street. The band that they had playing was fantastic and played a wide range of music. Additionally, they were open to allowing you to walk in with your "to-go" cup. Some of the other bars would not allow this, which just made us go elsewhere. I have read other... More

This was one of the places recommended by friends and we weren't disappointed! Live music was a bit loud for such a small place but was good! Only thing we couldn't figure out was our friend ordered a drink, I ordered the same thing right behind him and his glass was much bigger...still scratching my head on that one...unless he... More
