Bourbon St, New Orleans
Bourbon Street! and the French Quarter.
You've got tourist gift shops, next to expensive (coat & tie) restaurants, next to strip clubs, with Music blaring from everywhere. A very happenin' place regardless what night of the week you're there.
Dress Code: At some restaurants be prepaired to have coat and tie. Most every place else it's casual attire.
There are plenty of bars to choose from on Bourbon Street. Hey, you don't even have to stay there. You can get your drink and walk to another bar.
Lots of neon and..lets just say it not a place for the little kids.
They close off the streets to auto traffic at 8PM and chaos reigns for the rest of the night! From Canal St. up to about St. Anne's, Bourbon St. becomes one huge party! I know the pics here are not great when seen small, but if you can see them big, you can see all the people crowded into the street.
Dress Code: Casual, assuming you're dressed at all!
Bourbon street is by far the most popular. There are many streets full of night clubs with any type of music you want to hear! People dancing in the streets and tourists watch - sometimes with their mouth open in disbelief! There is something for everyone!
My favorite spot is downtown by the Mississippi river. At night you can see the barges going in and out the city surrounded by beautiful lights.
Dress Code: The dress code varies. SInce it is a touristic city, anything goes...
Where do you think? Bourbon Street. You can't walk down it once without being pretty 'happy' by the end of the night.
I got a little TOO 'happy.' But this is a must-do. And wear the beads!!! Buy a mask!!! it is worth it!!
Take a walk down Bourbon St and they WILL throw beads! We had a fabulous time! Definitely a MUST do while in New Orleans!
If you can't find something good to do here at night then there is no hope for you. Just be sure to watch your pockets.
This is a great party town, as well as the best food you will ever taste. Just be ready for anything you may see or hear.
Dress Code: Leisure and comfortable
The entertainment is nonstop here, and not just in the clubs! The people on the street are very amusing, as well!
With its many jazz and Dixieland clubs, restaurants, souvenir shops and adult entertainment, Bourbon Street is the place to be at night.
Dress Code: Casual
Discovered a vendor named Monty who serves up the best hurricane in town (although the one at Acme is good too).
