This place was really fun! The emcee was really good. He could get the place going and keep it going for hours. Great voice and dance moves. You can sing and dance on the stage with him or by yourself. Karaoke can be really entertaining...More

Not our first visit, this is a karaoke bar. The employees really work the crowd and keep an upbeat tempo. They have a nice upstairs area to either sit inside or go to their balcony (free of charge) to check out a birds eye view...More

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

around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
