Make sure you try the absinthe! Can be expensive so always ask prices of various brands. A fun bar and if you are dressed as a pirate, you will fit right in.
This place is very small, but was one of our favorite places to stop in New Orleans. They have a great pirate-themed drink menu and the location can't be beat. Service girls were friendly and engaging. I'd love to spend more time there!
We loved our bartender who took the time to serve us and shed light on the history about this bar and it's surroundings. Knowing the Lafitte brothers history really made it interesting. We enjoyed sitting on the outside along Pirate's Alley. (she made me a good hurricane) A Piratey atmosphere, fun spirited and a great place to hang out.

They should consider expanding their rum options, being a pirate bar. Serving traditional prepared absinthe which is cool. Very nice bartender working herself... More
Near Jackson Square and the Cathedral. Hole in the wall. We liked that Bloody Mary's and cocktails and wine were all $6 each. The Bloody Mary's were tasty with olives. I would think I would want to eat there but I did not try it so maybe that is not fair. Self serve at the bar. Has outdoor seating. People... More
