What to do on a Rainy Day in NOLA?

It was raining all day. We were wet and tired but eager to explore more of what New Orleans had to offer, so off we went to the French Quarter to Pat O'Brien's. The bar was packed... read more

Bar and restaurant, but the main attraction is the piano bar..Crowded but a lot of fun with the dueling pianos. Put your favorite song on a piece of paper, tip the players, and you have a great night. The Hurricane is the drink everyone talks about, but be aware. It's very sweet, and many say they should have ordered something... More

We decided we were too old for this type of bar. Loud and for the younger set. Someone told us that we should go to Frenchman Street where it isn't as noisy and the drinks are cheaper. We should have listened. Long walk down Bourbon Street so wear comfortable shoes. The service was good. You can get $3 back off... More

We had dinner at the cornet which was ok and thought we would stop in to try a hurricane at pat o briens which was close in St. Peter's st. Three hours and lots of drinks later we staggered out of the joint. The piano bar area is very daggy with an older crowd but so much fun. A must... More

It is a bar and It is a icon of the French Quarter. They do make a killer drink but they are pricey. We stopped like we always do to get our hurricane fix and then continued on. It has become more of a tourist stop then a local spot. But well worth a stop if you have never been.

Complete tourist trap with dueling pianos like every other piano bar I've been to, but the bar tenders were extremely friendly. They made it very clear that if we didn't like a drink we could have another at no charge. Expensive drinks though.

Was surprised to see a PO'B's in San Antonio but deliberately didn't go in as didn't want to spoil my memories of the original. Was not disappointed , as on my 3rd visit spread over 35 years , the place was the same. Happy, crowded & pleasant !! The Seahawks were in town (to be beaten) and the place was... More

We are a Badgers-Penn State married couple, so while on our honeymoon, we HAD to find a bar to watch the Big 10 Championship. We were getting nervous because there are surprisingly few sports bars on Bourbon. We stepped off of Bourbon and walked in to Pat O'Brien's. We had heard great things and weren't disappointed. The bar is very... 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.
