We LOVED the Cats Meow. It was the highlight of our trip seeing our friend get trashed, wear a tiger mask, and sing karaoke. If you are 21-30 this is the place to go. We went almost every night for our college spring break and...More

It's one of the few bars on Bourbon that offer Karoake. Don't be embarrassed if you can't sing. The host will always be available to sing with you. Beers are mostly two for one, just don't get ahead of yourself. You may not realize that...More

I am not fan of karaoke bars but this was really fun, energetic and quite rhythm. Something happens messy but very well here.

I was in NOLA for a business trip/conference. This was the perfect location to get some group bonding done. As a group, we did some karaoke and we are a better team for it. The drinks were good and reasonably priced for the location.

Well run karaoke place. They have good singers running the karaoke so when the occasional awful singer comes up they help them out saving your eardrums. Lots of fun.

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

We went on a Saturday night and there was no cover charge. Most places on Bourbon Street don't charge covers.
