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.

Place is quaint & typical for New Orleans. Bartender was friendly & was attentive. Even though.... The bartender didn't keep a tab or really for our drinks. So when it came to pay out he decided to throw a number out for our tab. We...More

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.

First of all, this place had only three people in it on a Saturday night at 8:00 PM despite the fact they had live music. The music was just ok. Probably the reason no one was there is that the bartender is a total jerk....More

They serve Smithwicks, which can be hard to find at times. Steve is a pretty cool guy to watch a rugby game with. There's a pool table and small stage for local musicians.

Big bartender guy was a jerk. I asked to use the restroom before I ordered and he insisted that I order a drink first. I'm not letting that sit out on the bar to be tampered with so I went elsewhere. It was an embarrassing...More

I really like this place and I've been coming here for years. I don't know if I would call this a "legitimate" Irish pub, but if you are in the mood for Harp or Guinness, they have it. While it isn't the cleanest bar in...More

Nice little spot for a drink, not too crowded, not real cheap, ($5 draft, $8 whisky), claim to fame is live music, stop in when they have some performer that appeals to you.

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
