    Arrgggg matey! Yes you will see "real" pirates here. Well to us they might be costumed people, but they them, they are REAL! Pirate's Alley is a tiny bar but full of character! There is no heat or AC here so know that whatever the elements are like outside, it's going to be similar inside. It does stay surprisingly cool in the summer with the cross-breeze.

    This bar is Nola's version of Cheers. Every time we pop in, someone walks in and the entire bar knows their name. It's small inside and really smells of smoke. Beers are kept ice cold in a cooler rather than poured by tap.

    I'm not sure how it happens, but every time I step foot into Erin Rose I have an even better story to tell than the last time. Drinks are cheap and great. The bartenders and bouncers always appreciate a drink too. Killer Po Boys is located in the back of the bar. They work short hours but it's worth seeking them out for a late night bite.

    The bar moves!? Why yes it does. The bar turns ever-so-slightly as it represents an actual children's carousel. You don't move fast, but if you leave your chair for a few minutes, it takes a quick glance around the bar to see where it is now. The drinks are strong but are quite pricey. Stop in for at least one cocktail. It's worth taking a ride!

    This is for Johnny White's on St. Peter Street, not Bourbon Street! (But it doesn't pull up on Trip Advisor.) Anyway - no trip to Nola is complete without stopping into Johnny White's for a quick drink. You never know what you will find in this bar. It will always keep you guessing! Lots of locals and regulars belly up at the near side of the bar. Sometimes there is a big dog or a little dog hanging out on a bar stool. Sometimes it's packed on a Wednesday afternoon and empty during the heart of Saturday night party hour. Regardless of when you stop in, be sure to stop in!

    I have to include the Lafitte's on the list, even though it's mostly filled with young frat boys. (Hey - maybe that is your thing..) But I always take visiting friends to Lafitte's because it's cool on the inside and has a fascinating history to talk about. There aren't too many places ON Bourbon I'd recommend, but this is one of the few.

    Tujagues's (sounds like two-jacks) is one of New Orleans' oldest bars. It's a standing bar only, which was very common in the South. Now it's one of the only (if not the only) left remaining. You can't pull up a chair and belly up to the bar, but you can stand and enjoy your cocktail. The best sazerac and Ramos gin fizz can be found at Tujague's!
