My husband and I found ourselves drawn to this bar several times, even with ALL of the bars to choose from on bourbon street. The food and music were both awesome. Not to mention a fabulous wait staff.

This is what I’m talking about. Drawn in by fun staff, and great smells. If you’re on bourbon street, there were so many choices, but this one stood out. Great deals on drinks. Food was legit Louisiana goodness. Great live music, fun vibe.

Service was good but food was terrible. Tasted awful and did not seem fresh. Not to mention wayyy over priced for what you get. Skip it.

My husband and I stopped by there to have drinks. The courtyard was very pretty, but sit away from the bamboo trees. My husband got pooped on twice while there. So glad it didn't get in our drinks. The live music as good and the...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
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
