    Pat O's: Hurricanes galore

    by Zarah Written Jan 26, 2004

    On the night I went, this place was patronized by locals and tourists alike. Grab a table in the garden at the back, and have some yummy Hurricanes. New Orleans is famous for Hurricanes, and Pat O’Brien’s makes them the best. Who knew Kool-Aid spiked with Rum could be so good?!?!?!?

    Dress Code: Cool casual

    Pat O'Brien's: Home of the Famous Hurricane

    by spartan Written Feb 7, 2004

    Hurricanes, the Piano Bar, the Flaming Fountain, and green-jacketed waiters await behind the doors of 718 St. Peter in the French Quarter, New Orleans.

    We didn't stop in to eat, just to listen to the music and have a hurricane. The Piano Bar (located across the carriageway from the main bar) is a large room offering green cushioned chairs poised around copper-topped tables.

    The front stage boasts two copper-topped baby grand pianos and dueling entertainers perform your favorite sing-alongs from requests written upon napkins passed up from the audience (Green-coated waiters pass through the audience to take your drink orders).

    Dress Code: Tourist casual is a nice way to say it.

    Pat O'Briens Piano Bar: Dueling Pianos

    by BLewJay Updated Feb 17, 2004

    If you are looking for a place with live music, great drinks and an electric atmosphere, then the Pat O'Briens Piano Bar is the place for you. Two pianist are on the stage playing from a music playlist sent to them by guests on napkins...the music is loud and the patrons sing along as if they are at a concert.

    Dress Code: A very casual place, so no need to get all dressed up. But the main reason people go here are for the famous Pat O'Briens Hurricane:

    4 oz. Pat O'Briens Hurricane Cocktail Mix
    4 oz. Pat O'Briens Hurricane Rum
    Fill glass with crushed ice
    Garnish with orange and cherry

    Pat O'Brien's: Hurricanes, dueling pianos and a lot of fun

    by jglsongs Written Mar 13, 2004

    Pat O'Brien's is a New Orleans institution. Unlike its famous neighbor, Preservation Hall, there are tables and (more important) drinks. Not just any old drinks, but their Hurricanes are their claim to fame, and after a few, you never can tell what kind of scene you'll make at Pat O's!

    There are two pianos onstage, and two players in a round-robin style. There might be male pianists, but I've never seen anyone else but women onstage playing and singing. Some are good, some are great- some are funny and some are just plain kitch, but it's all fun and all good.

    Dress Code: Informal and anything goes. Being New Orleans, this place is hopping from late afternoon til whenever. The courtyard is a lot of fun too, but inside is where the show is the best. (Make sure someone sings 'Sara, Sara, swinging on the shedhouse door'.)

    Pat O's: Great Spot

    by Corinneao Written Jan 6, 2005

    Pat O'briens is a great place to hang out day and night. Food is pretty good as well. Don't forget to try a Hurricane or another one of their fun drinks.

    Dress Code: Seems anything goes. Then again, it was Halloween when I was there.

    This is the home of the Hurricane, a kind of fruity-rum drink. They sell these all over New Orleans, but you can get the best here.

    Dress Code: Anything is fine.

    Pat O'Brien's: Time for a Hurricane

    by Tom_Fields Written Dec 18, 2006

    Pat O'Brien's is famous for its Hurricane drink. It's actually equivalent to at least two drinks. No visit to New Orleans is complete without having one. It's a true Louisiana classic.

    Dress Code: Casual.

    Pat O'Brien's Come right in...
