Hands down this is one of the best karaoke bars in New Orleans. After my crew finished with Beyonce and Stevie Wonder folks thought we were celebrities. We had to run out the door before getting mobbed. It was so fun and amazing.

Celebrated 21st bday here and had a blast! We all sang karaoke all night! The emcee was great and really kept the crowd going. Drinks were a little on the weak side but we had flasks so it was ok.

Awesome entertainment...they rock. Love the place especially at night--if you love crowds or during the day if you like drinks and hanging with friends.

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

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
