Good people watching courtyard.

Enjoyed the famous hurricane, friendly staff, and lovely courtyard area. We went before the younger crowd arrived and enjoyed a (strong) daytime drink. Not a MUST-DO, but a nice... read more

The world famous Hurricane drink is a must if you're ever in town! They also have the best red beans and rice.

Pat O'Brien's is a good restaurant in the middle of the French Quarter where you can get very tasty local cuisine. The alligator bites and the sausage Gumbo were my favorites! They also let you keep the glass if you order a Hurricane, one of their most popular drinks!! Service is also very good and friendly!!! I highly recommend Pat... More

Visiting with 8 friends. It was a fun Friday evening. Visited the piano bar. Had large table at the front. Mr. tambourine man was eclectic. Enjoyed hurricanes. Go early. We left by 10 and it was getting major crowded. Definitely a fun place that we recommend.

The original home of the hurricane and the best place to drink it. Other places do it but it's not the same. The staff are amazing and welcoming. And you must visit the piano bar. We spent most our nights there, good fun all round and the restaurant has nice food too

I was in NOLA with coworkers who had never been here before so I suggested we go here after dinner. The piano bar is fun with plenty of places to sit. I had one hurricane but they are too sweet for me. Two got spilled on the floor so we sat in stickiness all night. There was also a really... More

The hurricane honestly doesn't tastethat great. We sat at the piano lounge. The artists rushed all the songs (I assume more song equals more tips)? Tip: if u return the glasses you get $3 back

Though you can't see it from the street, Pat O'Brien's encompasses a big part of the city block due to a huge backyard patio. They have an indoor bar and also a dueling piano bar. Though locals say the Hurricane isn't as good here as other places (like Lafitte's) even though they invented the thing, it still tastes fine and... 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.
