    Famous Door: Famous Door

    The Famous Door
    2 more images

    A bar on Bourbon Street with 2-for-1 drinks and live music! How could you go wrong? How about a 10-minute wait, at the bar when the bar was virtually empty, for starters? Perhaps the door is most famous when customers are leaving?

    Besides the service, the bar is pretty good. They have 2-for-1 drinks (and sometimes even 3-for-1 drinks) in the late afternoon. And they seem to always have live music playing a variety of jazz and old rock. Much more mainstream than the strip clubs and loud clubs at the Canal Street end of Bourbon.

    According to Frommers, this is the oldest live music venue on Bourbon Street, open since 1934. It is said Harry Connick, Jr. played here years ago when he was just a teenager. The bar was formerly owned by the same company that operated Razzoo and the Bourbon Street Blues Company. The Famous Door has changed ownership, not sure about the others.

    Famous Door: She will, She will, Rock you!!

    Rock On!!

    An incredible women rocked our world one night in New Orleans. Only, I never got her name or saw her again. I am talking about the lead singer of a band that played at Famous Door on Bourbon St. on Thursday May 12, 2005. She was awesome and we ended up rocking with her and her band till the wee hours of the morning.

    The following night we went back hoping to hear her and her band, but it was another band that couldn't carry a tune worth a darn. But we had fun anyway.

    If anyone knows the name of this band or the lead singer, please send me an email or comment! Thanks.

    Famous Door: Rocking all night!

    Famous Door Rocks!

    The Famous Door night club on Bourbon street rocked all night! We had such a great time the first night, we went back the second. Live rock music and the bands get the crowd going. Fun adult games brought the crown on the stage between sets, great fun!

    This club is the oldest club on Bourbon St. We never had to purchase drinks in this club, we were able to bring in what we were walking around with.
