Bourbon Street can be a zoo but we hit on the Opera House one afternoon lured in by the sound of the band and ended up staying all afternoon. The staff were friendly (as were the other patrons) and the band were happy to play anything we shouted for. There were a couple of 2 for 1 drink offers on too so it was probably cheaper than some bars on Bourbon Street that day. If you're heading to NOLA then I'm sure Bourbon Street will be somewhere on your radar even if you're not into 24-7 partying. But I'd recommend a visit to the Opera House for the band's alone!
