Great place. We went there 2 times on our trip To New Orleans. Love the hangrenade martini with its light up glass. Big Al Carson is a great blues singer, worth the trip just for him. Cocktail server was excellent. Clean restrooms.

The Funky Pirate is best known for a headliner called "Big Al," but blues fans will definitely want to hear the Pentones - arguably the best blues trio in New Orleans. Mark, Thomas and Eddie literally fill the house and the street outside with high-quality sound. The music isn't all that loud, it's just all that good. Drink prices are... More

Had a great afternoon here (December 2013) of listening to music with friends and downing a couple of adult beverages. The musicians were great, friendly too, talked with the audience and let us all be part of the experience.

Had heard about Big Al Carson prior to my trip and added a stop in New Orleans so I could soak up some blues and jazz. Arrived around 7.30 and was the only one there which was fine, gave me time to get a drink or three and take the second best seat in the house. I had been told... More

We arrived at about 7 p.m. on a weeknight, long before the band arrived. The bar was quiet, but the staff were friendly and willing to make suggestions. I found the Hand Grenade (essentially a melon ball slushy) to be refreshing -- just what I needed on a hot, sticky night after wandering Bourbon Street. Really liked the ambiance and... More

We hit the start of a great set but then it went cold and there was then no action at the bar. The band makes all the difference.

I had a really enjoyable night listening to The Blues Masters. They played my favorites including B. B. King (RIP). Thoroughly enjoyed. 👍

Love this place. Beats them all. The music is amazing. It is less spring braekish than anywhere else on bourbon street.

Very nice and clean place to listen to some southern style blues. Seating could be better. The bands were awesome and had good crowd interaction.

Great drink deals and awesome bartender- Jonah rocks. The hand grenades are awesome as always. Great liquor scored to choose from and delicious condoms ready for purchase. Lol
