A ways up Bourbon Street is the Cat's Meow. It's a karaoke bar with a host that sings and encourages the performers and gets people up on stage and dancing. Great to people-watch if you don't feel like performing yourself! The drinks here are great...More

What a lively location, there are no rules as to who can sing here and sing they all do. From the very good hosts and locals to the not so good and very drunk tourists. However it does not seem to matter what category you...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
