New Orleans is infamous for its spooky past, filled with tales of voodoo, vampires, ghosts, and witches. During this walking tour, save time with a guide who knows the quickest routes around the Big Easy and brings the folklore and history of the city to life, all during the creepiest time of day—the night. Plus, a centrally located meeting point makes for a hassle-free, fun evening.

The place is so small you could pass it by and never even notice. I was reluctant to go inside the first time I saw it because the sign looked like a medievalish, weird spot. The second time I passed, I heard such good music I had to go inside. The Apple Barrel has this super casual, no-frills vibe that's very different from the other bars in the area. It was also the only spot I visited, with different music proposals. The band that was playing was composed of two women playing the oboe, clarinet, guitar and some other instruments. The mix of bossa and jazz was simply breathtaking. They were super friendly too, taking suggestions and talking about their inspirations and whatnot. The girl tending the bar was super kind, chatty without being intrusive. Be sure to drop in at least for a beer if you have some time to kill, maybe you'll get a pleasant surprise like I did.

We went here to watch the live band. The place was empty and I wonder if it is because of the bar tender. We left after one drink he was so bad and the only other couple who came in whilst we were there also left. There are about six seats in total so expect to stand if it ever does get busy. So the bar guy looked at us like it was a huge inconvenience to have customers to serve. I’ve done bar work some years ago and know it can be hard work so still tried to be friendly. Asked him if they had a local beer as I was keen to try traditional NO styles having just arrived the night before. He pointed at the top of a chalk board and grunted “the top half” I ordered a bottle from there and it wasn’t from NO but no biggy it still tasted fine. No smile, no thanks, nothing. He just seemed really surly and like he was in a bad mood. We only stayed for one and my husband tipped the band before we left. Now my husband who paid for the drinks too decided the guys attitude stank and didn’t tip him. The bar guy waited til my husband walked out the door and then stopped me to say “bar staff works for tips too you know”. His demeanour was quite confrontational so I just smiled and said ok. At that point I wasn’t aware he hadn’t been tipped as I didn’t pay so if he had a problem maybe he should have challenged my husband and not waited until he left to get rude with a woman instead. To be fair I 100 percent agree he shouldn’t have been tipped as his attitude was real rude from the second we walked in. The only other couple who appeared just after us left after one so I think they had the same warm welcome. I see other negative reviews are down to this type of confrontational attitude. The guy is losing the place business as we are here for another week but wouldn’t feel comfortable going back again. In case the owner reads this it was the only male member of staff behind the bar on Friday 14th June around 3pm ish tall guy with good hair and a sour face. If the bar guy happens to read it I hope you improve your attitude as if you work for tips you are gonna struggle with a stinker personality and service like that.

Great music brought me in. Seating at the bar for 7. 4 hitops. All the rest is standing room. Then it was $12 for a week drink. The music was good. But not that good.

Small venue, so either go before start of band or don't plan your evening around it. No fancy cocktails, no food, no coddling... just the best music on Frenchman's 75% of the time.

My wife and I dropped in here just for a drink or two at the downstairs bar, where a young lady sang and played an electric guitar with percussion provided by her feet! Drinks were typically priced for this area ($6 for a can of IPA beer and $6 for a G&T). The music was very entertaining, restaurant upstairs.
