The bands at this place are always great. Any night of the week. It is better to go midweek if you want to sit.

Every time I go to Famous Door there is an excellent live band playing. This past trip was no exception. I knew the words to almost every song they played! People are usually dancing during the daytime, and always at night! The bad points: 1. There are no towels in the restrooms. 2. The lady bartender was snappy and not much fun. 3. Their 2 beers for the price of 1 is tricky. They don't warn you about this. When I walked in with my girlfriend I ordered a Budweiser and a Bud Lite. Without saying anything, the bartender opened 2 Buds and 2 Bud Lites and charged $11.50. I would have just ordered 1 beer and gotten 2 if I had known. Who wants to let a beer sit on the counter while they drink the other one? They should tell customers about this before opening the beers. That said, if you go into this bar, ignore the snappy bartender, and order 1 beer when you need 2, you'll have a lot of fun. The music is the best on Bourbon street!

Went back to this bar 3 times while we were in NOLA. Loved the band, yes drinks are pricey, but if you get there early they have 2 for 1 specials...shots are relatively cheap and there is no cover to hear and awesome band. A must see in NOLA!

We were only there for a couple of hours on Friday and Saturday, in the middle of the day... and it was lots of fun!!! The band is great, and it is a fun place to spend a few hours or a day!!! :-)
