Dark, dank, musky, and boring. The artwork however was nice! We were told it was a type of S&M bar, which mostly sounded more interesting than anything. It did not appear as such however. Has potential but must be an off Friday night.

I've been going here for many, many years. Any trip to the Quarter must include at least one trip!! Music is very loud. Drinks are very reasonable. They often have certain beers for a dollar or two a bottle. The people here are very friendly...More

In a city that fully embraces the darker side of things, The Dungeon stands out. Around the corner from Bourbon Street, a thin, dark passageway leads thru a courtyard and into a dimly lit goth/metal bar. The drinks are good and reasonably priced, the jukebox...More

Always a good choice for a late night drink when in the French Quarter especially if you like dark and mysterious places with loud music and affordable drinks...try the Witches' Brew for a tasty cocktail.

So, I was intrigued when my cousin mentioned this place as one of our 'must see' stops and boy oh boy was this place unique and peculiar. It is dark with loud thrasher/heavy metal music and very confined inside (I suppose that is what makes...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
