Several separate bar spaces including classic neighborhood bar reminiscent of German bars with Steins on the ceiling. There is a piano bar and an outdoor courtyard. All the music can be heard but doesn't drown out your conversation.

Really enjoyed the hour plus we spent here on a Tues night. The performers were good. While they may be known for their Hurricane, it was more hype than good. If you want a special glass, by one & order a beer. Staff was helpful...More

This is an OK place in my book, we had a private party, the music was so loud you could not hear the person next to you, food was OK, Drinks were very strong, (Some people like that). I would think twice about returning

When out and about, I generally look out for an 'Irish bar' and was somewhat lucky to stumble across this place, without knowing its history. We went in mainly because of the dual piano set up and music. This place is the home of the...More

Glad you happened upon Pat O's and enjoyed the Hurricane and great music! However, the glasses on other tables are not for the taking. We have the deposit policy so guests can enjoy drinking from a glass, but do not want to keep the glass....More

I don't care for rude people either. We will address the staff immediately, as this behavior is not tolerated. Thank you.

I was walking around the French Quarter on a Tuesday afternoon and it started to rain very lightly. Like a mirage in the desert, Pat O'Brien's Courtyard appeared, and I realized I was leaving the next day and hadn't had one of their hurricanes yet!...More

41 years ago, my wife and I visited Pat's and had our first Hurricane in Courtyard Patio. This time, we were very hot and elected to stay in the bar. The crowd was little crazy but Hurricanes will do that to you. My wife had...More

Stopped in late afternoon for Guinness and and ended up with a great conversation with the bartender who grew up in the French quarters. He gave us two great food suggestions for locals, so thank you young man

My first and only time in New Orleans, I had to visit this Legendary Place, and I wasn't disappointed. Stopped in for a quick drink and to look around. The Ladies Restroom was quaint/quirky. 2 spiral staircases lead you upstairs to what might have originally...More

Pat O'Brien's is such a kitschy and classic place that we almost didn't go, but we were glad we did. They have a pretty courtyard that is a great escape from the hubbub of the street for a while. The drinks were tasty and cool,...More

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

It was 9$ but you can sell the glass back at the bar if you don't want to keep it and they give you cash

8.50. Well worth it. Easily nursed for the two hours or so you'll want to stay. Or order another and get drunk.

New Orleans Traditional Jazz Camp I think that this is the group that you're referring to. They are a once a year event. However there are numerous Second Lines through the FQ every weekend.
