This is a historic bar right on bourbon street. It is not full of neon or other inducements, but it has a very cool atmosphere. It’s somewhat dark inside, but good people watching and enjoying your favorite NOLA drink.
So this place is a little bit away from the bustle, but still on bourbon street. It was incredible! Dark and with a fire on due to it being very cold and windy outside. Drinks were good - strong, which is important!
We would definitely...More
Great ambiance, awesome hurricanes (better than Pat O's), energetic atmosphere. The piano player was off the charts fun. We spent hours here just singing along to some classic songs. Would totally go back the next time we're in NOLA.
This is a bar with really uniqu atmosphere, even for Bourbon Street.
The building is quirky and inviting, the bar staff are great and the range of drinks is vast and served with a smile.
It's a great place to chill and equally good to...More
The oldest structure used as a bar in the United States and a great Place to stop every time we come to town. In fact we typically stabbed multiple times. We love the old atmosphere and Purple voodoo drinks. They taste really good but are...More
Great bar on Bourbon Street that is a little off the beaten path, what it lacks in chaos it makes up for in character! This bar is super cool, great drinks, and a live piano too.
The frozen drinks are super potent and the service...More

After reading so many great reviews of Lafitte's, I was determined to get there! It was a long way along Bourbon - you have to persevere to find it! Thank goodness I dragged a friend along with me! We never felt unsafe but it was...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
Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.

He would certainly be able to enter with parents, however the drinking age is 21 in Louisiana. Having said that, Bourbon Street is a much more "relaxed" area of the city when it comes to enforcement, so you may get him past scrutiny ... just don't go expecting it.
I don't understand this question as I have NEVER seen this bar closed. I am here now & just inquired.....they have a 24-hour liquor license. They open at 9am and typically close at about 4-4:30 am depending on the crowds. So... More
I don't understand this question as I have NEVER seen this bar closed. I am here now & just inquired.....they have a 24-hour liquor license. They open at 9am and typically close at about 4-4:30 am depending on the crowds. So unless you are needing a bar 4:30 am-9 am THIS IS THE PLACE TO GO!!
