Really great experience! Great performance inside, plenty of drinks available. There are also girls that just go among the visitors and provide instant drinks to the public. The music is great, the atmosphere is cool, excellent!

We had a great time at the Famous Door. The live music was great both nights we wondered in. Wednesday night was a good mix in the crowd. Thursday felt more college crowd. Typical drinks and prices for the area.

The music is just up your alley. If you were young wheat all the great bands were new, you will appreciate this venue. Great music, great drinks. A great stop on the Bourbon Street walk.

I only stopped in for about 15 minutes. They had a rock band going with alternating male and female lead singers. They were pretty good but not awesome. The place was very crowded at about 11pm and it looked like the crowd was having a...More

Off of bourbon street, the music drew me in. Saw two bands that did cover tunes of popular 70s and 80s music. 2 for 1 drink specials early in the evening. Lots of dancing and crowd participating singing. Fun was had by all. Tip bands.

French Quarter
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!
