About 40 years ago my little brother went to NOLO and brought back a Hurricane glass from this landmark, and when he passed I made a promise to myself to have one there for him. Well I finally made it - and I had two - one for him and one for me! Sorry to be so personal but this... More

The dueling pianos make for such a fun night out with friends. Always lively with great service and fantastic drinks. Have to try a hurricane!

We have patronized this place for the last 38 years and it is still the best. Food, drinks, and service are always a 10. Located not far from Jackson Square and never a wait for a table or a seat at the bar. Staff is very friendly and quick.

We went to Pat's for drinks/dinner and we sat in the piano lounge. It had one of the most fun atmospheres I've visited. The dueling pianos were so fun! The singers/players were awesome. Service was outstanding. Go early, they ran out of seats/tables shortly after we arrived. Will go here again!

If so, then you will enjoy the piano bar at POB. Both groups of ladies know how to get the room involved in a fun night. They seem to be able to play almost any song you might request. One group even has a man who can play the serving tray. He has metal caps in his fingers, and has... More

I love this place. When in Nola my friends and I always stop here. The drinks are amazing. They make a great mint julep and the best hurricanes.

I wish we would have went to Pat O's the first night we were here. They have the best hurricanes. The knock offs on Bourbon are not nearly as well made and the price is nearly the same. It is about $8 for a large size hurricane and it even comes with a fresh slice of orange. Definitely worth the... More

Pat O'Brien's is actually two buildings, one on Bourbon St and one around the corner on St. Peter's, connected by an incredible court yard. There are bars at both entrances along with a great piano bar on the St. Peter's side; which is a fun place to spend an evening. The beautiful courtyard is full of fountains and lush plants... More

I have called in at Pat O'Brien's a few times now, it is definitely worth a visit. When you walk in there is a quieter bar on the left, that sometimes shows sports on a screen during the day. On the right the music room, where you can catch dueling pianos. I've always had a fun time there, you can... More

We have been here before and still love coming here. The Hurricane drinks are big and fun! If you want to keep your glass as a souvenir you can but if not bring it to any bar when you are done and they will give you $3 per glass back. The two piano players take requests and love what they... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
