Beware - if you see a waitress coming towards you with test tube shots shoo her away as fast as possible. Don't even let her get close. This and several other clubs in the Quarter will try to scam you into buying them.

We went here hoping to sing some Karaoke. I sing a lot wherever I can. This place however was for professionals. These singers sounded like they were in a band. We left.

I went during the week and brought my showmanship! I had a blast singing. The hostess was fun and kept the crowd entertained in between. 3/1 beers is not a bad way to fill up on liquid courage.

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
