This place has karaoke every night. Went in here on a thursday. Place was pretty busy and continued to fill up after we got there. A fun and rowdy crowd. Mostly younger. Lots of songs to choose from. Beer wass cold. Drinks reasonable. and tasty. Service was great.

This is a small neighborhood bar, but it has a great feel to it. First thing (NOT a complaint) if you're going for the karaoke it doesn't start until 8:00 pm. The web site and sign boards say 5:00 starting time which is incorrect. You will get excellent service with lots of warm smiles from the lovely Ashley tending the... More

If you want a bar that's low-key and you like karaoke, you will enjoy Kajun's. We went to this bar late on a Saturday night in August, which is the off season for New Orleans. It was maybe 11pm when we got there and I think we left around 3:30am. The whole time we were at the bar there were... More

I just found out that I have been banned from this bar for leaving negative feedback on yelp. The review was not about the bar or bartenders but, solely, about the DJ. I've been going to Kajun's longer than the DJ in question has been working there. This all boils down to poor business ethics. I know that Kajun's did... More

Let me start off by saying that I love hanging out at this bar. I'm not really a person to go out and spend long periods of time in bars, but there's something about Kajun's (Maybe the bar staff, the always available karaoke, or the general good crowd that always finds it's way here) that makes me love coming to...

I was looking for something to do with my wife and friends on a Sunday afternoon, and after looking at the WWOZ live music calendar, I thought this place might be fun. Boy was I right!!

Your nice, typical hole in the wall. Good drink prices (about $5-6 for a well, if I remember correctly). An awesome mix of people. I went on a Friday and a Tuesday and there were good crowds both nights. Karaoke starts at around 9 or 10. I was disappointed Friday because I called and was told that karaoke started at... More

I have been to Kajun's about 4 times, most recently for the Chewbaccus parade which marched right outside! I absolutely LOVE the staff, David, Joanne, & bartender Dustin.

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighbourhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.
