  • 27. Maple Leaf Bar

    One of my favorite places to see live music in New Orleans (which is just about my favorite thing to do here). The prices have gone up, by NOLA standards, but it's still a worthwhile show everytime...

  • 28. Spotted Cat

    Wow, best night out. Great music (We saw the New Orleans Jazz Vipers) and just for the price of drinks we would enjoy anyhow. Some swing dancers, some locals, some tourists, friendly bartenders...

  • 29. Creole Queen

    We did not take the dinner/jazz cruise because it was too cold and too expensive. I can imagine that it might be a wonderful evening. Dinner Jazz Cruise Pricing * Adult with dinner: $53 * Adult no...

  • 30. Cafe Du Monde

    I enjoy Cafe du Monde at night. Depending on when you go, there are less people and shorter lines. But more importantly, there is something about the less-crowded seating area which becomes such a...

  • 31. Ampersand

    Very disappointing. I pre-ordered tix, but was split from my group into a three hour line, while my friends paid less in cash and got in the club two hours before me. Very rude staff. They didn’t...

  • 32. Red Room

    This place is a restaurant by day and danceclub by night. As soon as you step through the door you realize this place is aptly named; the walls are red, the tables are red, and the first thing you see...

  • 35. The "OZ"

    The 800 block of Bourbon Street is informally gay. It certainly has one of the highest concentrations of rainbox flags and banners anywhere outside Castro Street. That said, this gay visitor to the...

  • 36. Lucy's

    Well, we all have a lot to say about Lucy's! This was the 2nd spot we hosted customers for the IFT show. We filled the place. Lucy's is a tiny bar, but chock full of personality. Dan the bartender...

  • 37. Techno Club

    Just on the edge of the gay part of Bourbon, 735 is pound for pound the best techno club in NOLA. It plays some house, but mostly techno and trance. It does host DJ's, but very infrequently. Decent...

  • 38. Fritzel's European Jazz Pub

    Fritzel's European Jazz Pub was the first of the really good Jazz clubs that I visited in New Orleans. It is also the only jazz club worth visiting on Bourbon Street. The music hear is not very...

  • 40. Margarittaville

    Located at the relatively quiet northern end of Decatur, Margaritaville has tried so hard to be unique, it ends up looking like your crazy old grandmother's house. I took a quick walk through the...

  • 42. Larry Flint's Hustler Club

    This is what passes for a strip joint in New Orleans. Despite the city's "anything goes" reputation, the strip joints are fairly tame compared to what some other cities have. Don't expect any more...

  • 43. Madigan's

    What is really neat about Madigan's is that it has a 'traditional' bar feel, but it is connected to another bar via an outdoor area. The connected bar is somewhat more hard-core, so the three together...

  • 44. Vic's Kangaroo Cafe

    Vic's Kangaroo Cafe is a great little dive bar on Tchoupitoulas in the Warehouse District........if you're looking to get away from the "yuppie-ness" of Lucy's or the "snobbiness" of the Wine Loft and...

    Just another photo from the Goldmine of some random people having fun playing pool. I really needed an excuse to take a few more pictures with my brand new digital camera, and we had quite a few good...
