Really enjoyed this Bourbon Street corner bar with live band. Drinks were good, band was awesome. On same block as our hotel, Royal Sonesta, which made it very convenient getting back to room after one too many drinks!

Pretty good band. Would have stayed a lot longer, but the cheap beer was $6.50 and a bottled water was over $3. Way too many places around with cheap beer and good music to stay past the first beer. Last trip to NOLA was good,...More

We went Tuesday & Wednesday to see "Quarter Note", a very versatile band doing '70s and '80s rocknroll. Very good, keeping the audience well entertained.

This is a normal bar, but has a very good live band- The owner ever got on stage and sang some. The music was geared toward a slightly older crowd 40s and over, but younger groups were also enjoying. They have 2 for 1 drinks....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
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

Over a few years, I've been to the Famous Door several times and it seems they have a different band each time. I hope they don't change to Country and Western music!!! Gotta love that good old Rock & Roll!
