Pat O'Brians was great, but it was packed when i was there every time. The Cat's Meow on Bourbon is great too.
Pat O'Brians has the traditional Hurricane as well as everyone else, but the fountains and the courtyard make it worth your while .
Dress Code Is ther a dress code in New Orleans?
Pat O'Brien's ROCKS!!!!!!!!! Pretty much anywhere on Bourbon Street is the place to be. Men will especially enjoy most of the window displays.
Pat O'Briens is a piano bar with the most amazing piano man alive. The crowd goes crazy all night long. I recommend the Hurricanes, but be warned they are STRONG!!!!
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
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.
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 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'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.
My parents and brother and I went to Pat O'Briens because it's my understanding it is a must see. However, I was not impressed at all! There were too many crowds and after waiting for some time we finally were seated at a table in the piano bar area. There was a strange old man who stood and tapped his fingers on a tin plate much to the crowds' pleasure. I found him more annoying and a distraction from the music of the pianos personally. But to be honest with you the piano music left MUCH to be desired and I would probably never care to go back.
Dress Code Does dress code really matter in New Orleans?
Pat O Briens is one of the most famous bars in the area. Although its touristy, plenty of locals go there. Make sure to check out the piano bar and the flaming fountain outside. But don't try the Hurricanes.
