It all depends on what you are looking for. Bourbon House is more like fine dining, with a nice wine list, great variety of seafoods and not so bad pricing. We had a nice, light lunch of oysters So, why the low rating? Because the oysters at Felix's across the road were twice the size, plump and meaty for the... More

Great selection of bourbons and whiskeys and a very knowledgable staff. Make sure you check out the large board on the wall as the paper menu does not list everything they have!

Ironically, my friends and I were trying to go to the restaurant next door based on a friend's recommendation. The line for the other restaurant was down the block and it was raining. We saw the Executive Chef Eric chatting with a few of the ppl standing in line. One of my friends walked over to him and asked about... More

You must try the frozen bourbon milk punch and the king cake punch! The food was good as was the service. Our drink/dessert server was great!

Recommended by hotel concierge and didn't disappoint. We enjoyed a great dinner with standouts being the charbroiled oysters and redfish on the half-shell topped with Louisiana crawfish tails. Excellent!

Great oysters - good service - bit of a move you in and out pace but all in all a very good spot when you need to escape the scene outside.

Near other popular oyster spots, this one offers a nice dining room and way to avoid lines. Their oysters are delicious as is the "frozen milk punch" cocktail - wow a real adult milkshake. Perfect spot for lunch!

We were in NOLA for a conference and some friends suggested we go to the Bourbon House for dinner. It was an all-around excellent experience. If you like grapefruit, splurge and get the Jilted Lover cocktail. Oh my. Everyone else had fried seafood, which was very good (large oysters and shrimp), but since I'd had this pricey cocktail, I got... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
