I have a fondness for pirate-themed activities, so this bar was a fantastic find. They're piratically-themed, with various things on the walls, and the waitstaff are also thematically dressed. They serve good pub food, and their drinks are definitely on the stronger side (and a...lot of their drinks include absinthe). Their prices are pretty reasonable. It's a great way to people-watch.More

It is a great place to sit and some drinks and watch people walk by. Tony the owner is very friendly. The girls who work there are great also. It is not on Bourbon, in Pirates Alley. I would highly recommend this place if you...want a sort of get off Bourbon Street. Plus you get to meet the Tour Guides.More

Definitely recommend the Pirate's Punch. Their drink prices are better than most bars, and they put plenty of alcohol in them! The bartender was great, and the alley is a cool place to sit. We also enjoyed the bar area on a hot afternoon. Try...the "Toxic Baby", lol.More

My husband and I stopped in one morning and had Death by Hemingway, which is a combination of absinthe and champagne, and was pretty good. It’s a tiny little place but in a location with tons of history. It’s only a few yards from the...Cathedral. I would recommend stopping in!More

Tiny little bar next to the St. Louis Cathedral. Indoor and outdoor seating. Good drinks. Pirate vibe. Arrrrrrrgh!

We actually went back multiple times to this location. I had a really good Jade 1901 absinthe. My boyfriend had Pirates Punch. The Toxic Baby house specialty is really good and they will not give you the ingredients. See if you can guess what it...is. This is a cash only bar. The staff was really nice and friendly. Fun little themed bar, hidden gem. On the weekend there was even a pirate couple outside. I ended up dueling, never trust a pirate. :)More

We stopped in late one night to try Hemingway's absinthe drink. The drink itself was revolting, but the cafe was cute. It was a great vibe to sit out in the alley at the little bistro table with our drinks, taking in the city.

Great drinks and interesting location. Met a tour group her and got a bloody Mary, spicy and really good.

I just liked this place. A bit quieter than the Bourbon Street rush, with some friendly (albeit a bit slow) service. Great Moscow Mules in proper cooper mugs.

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

The European wine industry quashed absinthe consumption with a smear campaign that lasted into the 1900s. The original liquor was often served with laudumun (a version of heroin) so it was a medicinal tonic of the day and... More
