After all the years of living in the New Orleans area, this was my first visit to The Kerry Irish Pub. This is a nice pub with several beers on tap and a large variety of Irish Whiskeys. There was a musician playing acoustic guitar...More

I read the reviews after I visited last night. Saw some of the things other reviewers mentioned but not all. "Rude bartender" seems to be a common theme and I can see where people get that. We sat and listened to the music and nobody...More

This place was dirty, even by New Orleans standards and the staff was not friendly. If you are looking for pool tables I would recommend Snookers, also on Decatur.They have more tables and a much more friendly staff.

This little bar had live music and fair prices. The bartender had a great personality and it wasn’t stuffed with tourists. I will be back!

Keep expectations at a minimum and you'll love it. Dive bar and pub that makes up for sophistication with a rough ambiance and fun!

Nice little hole-in-the-wall in the Quarter. They had a good solo act playing and the atmosphere was nice. Only made it there once during the week we stayed, but I would go back.

Nasty bartender. Walked into an empty bar and apparently his phone was more important to him than making patrons feel welcome. We just moved to Nola and are figuring out where we want to be. THIS is NOT the place!! Stay away unless you want...More

I stopped in for an afternoon respite and they make a mean "Lemon Drop Martini." We had good conversation and it was a nice port in the storm.

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
