We went on a couples trip. Us girls went shopping while the guys headed to the abstinthe house. They loved it! They did the absinthe ritual and enjoyed the female bartender talking about the history with them. Said they would definitely go again!
The whole story about absinthe and how it was thought to halucigenic and was banned for quite a while in the United States is very interesting. There are several brands of absinthe to sample here and they are served authentically. Fun place - Must see...More
First time on bourbon street trying absinthe was everything. Fun presentation, lots of options, and history lesson from bartender. Vintage football memorabilia. Business cards from every walk. Old bar with character.

If you are looking for a cool hipster hang out this place is NOT for you! This place has been around since 1807, and believe me the interior shows it's age, but that's half the fun. This place puts the Dive in Dive Bar. Be...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.
