Pat O'Brien's has something for everyone. It was the largest set up in all of Bourbon. Aside from the spacious outdoor fountain area, there was an indoor bar and a piano bar all within. By 9pm, there was a long line to get in so if you plan on passing by to check out the scene, do it early. The crowd gathered in here tended to be older like the 40's and 50's so if that's your mark, go get'em cowboy. Of course there was a sprinkling of younger tourists scattered about having equally as much fun standing around the glowing fountain.
The hidden gem here is to look up at the ceiling decor. From cups to guns, it was certainly interesting to look at. Come here if you are looking for a good time or are looking to cool down from that awesome jazz performance at Preservation Hall, which is right next door.

Pat O' Brien's is a spacious bar covering a vast outdoor patio. They are known for their bloody marys. It's a real steal - only $5! It's worthwhile to go for drinks and to watch the locals saunter by.Recommended for:Nightlife Lovers

As a Tourist in an exotic new City, sometimes you need to "check the box". Bourbon Street and Pat O'Brien's is one of those situations, especially if you like large, strong, and fruity drinks that catch up to you quickly.
A work colleague and I stopped by on an early Friday evening after a busy week near Baton Rouge and a local suggestion that we finish up our trip in NOLA. We sat outside within Pat O'Brien's large patio and relaxed with our Hurricanes. The price includes the glass, of which a $3 refund is available if you return it to the Bar.
We used our time to reflect on the week, engage in some serious people watching (and speculation on their "story"), catch recommendations from friends after we "checked in", and to plan where to go for dinner. The Gulf Coast was it's usual summer hot and humid self, yet the patio (and associated fans) provided a comfortable respite and a good place to start.

Drinks were absolutely amazing at this bourbon street restaurant. The courtyard is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the warm New Orleans weather. For the real New Orleans experience, try the seasonal etoufee. If you've still got room after eating, try the pecan pie. It's huge, quite beautiful to look at and tastes divine. Also, make sure to grab at least of those drinks Pat O's is known for, the hurricane!

This place seem like a tourist trap (and maybe it is), but I love it!! The reason why I love it is the dueling piano bar area. To sit in this area, it's etiquette to buy a drink or two. Unfortunately, there's no food allowed. There are many other areas in this place that serve food though.

The true home of the Hurricane, and the only place in New Orleans where you can get a 3 foot high version topped with orange slices and cherries that'll set you back a cool $1K. (Don't forget to bring twenty of your closes friends with you to drink it, unless you want your next stop to be Charity Hospital.)
