We went during Mardi Gras, very busy time, but those waiters know what they're doing! I was disappointed as the piano players took turns and weren't quite dueling, as in hyping up the audience, they just took turns playing and singing. We paid for our...More

My girlfriends and I had spent all day shopping, sightseeing, and dancing in the Quarter. We wanted to visit the famous Pat O'Brien's, and we were not disappointed. Drinks were good, but the live piano music was even better. We sat and enjoyed the atmosphere....More

Several of us stopped here and indulged in one of the oversized (to put it mildly) hurricane cocktails out in the Courtyard. Had a great time, although leaving was a bit fuzzy after we drank that thing! 😵

This is always a favorite! We have gone to Pat O’Briens in Orlando but love NOLA! Grab a Hurricane and sing a long. And... you get to keep your souvenir glass for hurricanes at home!

The piano bar is lots of fun. Always a scene in the patio bar. Gotta have a hurricane. Or get the magnum for $200. Just sit on patio and enjoy. Can get food in another area. A great New Orleans tradition.

The bar is big and has several sections, one is piano bar, one is patio, and one more couldn’t remember the name. Very beautiful and very nice bartenders, even the restroom is pretty. Can order beverages to go, their Hurricane is very popular and great.

We got there at around 115 am. Piano bar pretty full. You have to wait to be seated - and you can’t deviate from your given spot. The hurricanes were good. The piano players (especially the last guy at 200 am) was awesome.

This place is enormous and has so much space for the many patrons. We loved the piano bar, the ladies were our favourite. Table service is a dream as it’s so busy at the bar. We tried the infamous hurricanes, don’t forget you can choose...More

We went in to watch the LSU game and relive some college drinking fun. Bartender in the main bar was some dude. He spent most of his time fawning over a local gal and later laughed it up with some local guy. We come in...More

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

No. No reservations but if you get there earlier in the evening when they open at 6 I don’t think it would be a problem

The piano bar is inside Pat O’Brien’s. Yes there are tables and servers and usually great fun! Remember if you buy a speciality drink, you have paid for your glass so either take it with you or take to the bar and they will... More
