If you want a bar that's low-key and you like karaoke, you will enjoy Kajun's. We went to this bar late on a Saturday night in August, which is the off season for New Orleans. It was maybe 11pm when we got there and I think we left around 3:30am. The whole time we were at the bar there were... More

I just found out that I have been banned from this bar for leaving negative feedback on yelp. The review was not about the bar or bartenders but, solely, about the DJ. I've been going to Kajun's longer than the DJ in question has been working there. This all boils down to poor business ethics. I know that Kajun's did... More

I was looking for something to do with my wife and friends on a Sunday afternoon, and after looking at the WWOZ live music calendar, I thought this place might be fun. Boy was I right!! Rooster and The Chickenhawks is the name of the band that was playing, and they were a blast. My group is 45-55 years old...there... More

I had to meet Joan after I read about her in Dan Baums book "nine lives" we bought another copy of the book and the music CD that I am enjoying now. She graciously signed both for us. We went during the day so it was quiet but for me after reading and re reading the book, it was a... More

Your nice, typical hole in the wall. Good drink prices (about $5-6 for a well, if I remember correctly). An awesome mix of people. I went on a Friday and a Tuesday and there were good crowds both nights. Karaoke starts at around 9 or 10. I was disappointed Friday because I called and was told that karaoke started at... More

I have been to Kajun's about 4 times, most recently for the Chewbaccus parade which marched right outside! I absolutely LOVE the staff, David, Joanne, & bartender Dustin. Being solo and wanting to find a safe local place to hang out, I was thankful to find this spot, where I am always greeted with a smile and a hug. :)... More

Great bloody marys whenever you want them. 24/7. Friendly, pleasant neighborhood pub. New fancy jukebox so Karoke can go on at 7:00 a.m. if you want (though I'd make sure it's O.K. with your fellow patrons). A jewel on St. Claude and not far from the French Quarter.

What can I say? This place is awesome! Great staff, people and drinks. Not to mention the karaoke is great! Being just down the road from our accomodation almost made it too conveniant. We were there nearly every night! Highly reccomended - a must when in New Orleans!

We were visiting New Orleans and came across Kajuns by chance and it was so much fun. Sure, no one claps when you sing, but thats part of the charm. That and the man that gets up to sing every 2 songs. And the rude English people telling everyone they were awful (ok, that was us!), but the song list... More

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighborhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.
