Passing by and hearing classic rock made us want to go inside. There was a band called "Chicken on the Bone" which was excellent. We stayed about an hour drinking beer and listening to great music! Definitely a good place to check out!

We came in and the service sucked. Seemed like the bartender acted like she was being put out by having to get us drinks. Spent most her time cuddled up by the stairs on her phone. Only bottles of beer and mixed drinks. If they...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
