Top ways to experience Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop Bar
The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

Great looking place need vibes such culture and history drinks were awful though I’m not that picky but they were poorly made not sure if it was the ingredients or the effort but I’d still come back and drink beer cause you can’t mess that up.

Stopped by during a city ghost tour with Wendy for a Purple Voodoo and Hurricane. Amazing feel of the old New Orleans architecture with the bald cypress structure. Great drinks and service.

Fun watering hole
Apr 2021
Stopped in for a couple of cold drinks on a Thursday afternoon, we sat inside and enjoyed the quieter end of Bourbon St. We walked back here on Friday and it was packed inside and out. Contrary to popular belief, we detected no paranormal activity during our visit :) Definitely worth a stop to check the place out!

Great history
Jun 2021 • Couples
Visited this bar several times, dimly lit at night and usually crowded. The history lesson is really neat. I’d recommend having at least one drink here to check it out.

Stop by for a Frozen Purple Voodoo Drink
Mar 2021
We were told you can't visit NOLA without stopping by for a Voodoo drink so that is what we did. Did not disappoint.

Fun Piano Bar

We visited Lafitte’s to get away from the obnoxious side of Bourbon St. we walked into a very relaxed atmosphere with a piano bar. Would definitely visit again.

On Bourbon Street but doesn’t feel like Bourbon Street. Quiet and really charming. Excellent hurricane.
As other reviewers recommended the ‘purple drank,’ I tried it. I can’t recommend that one, unless you enjoy the taste of grape Fanta.
Bartenders are cool as hell.
