Bars and Cafes in New OrleansEdit This
New Orleans is considered to be one of the most fun and lively tourist destinations in the United States, and you are sure to enjoy the many New Orleans bars and cafes. Whether you’re looking for a crazy, fast-paced atmosphere or something more relaxed and low-key, New Orleans has many diverse establishments to suit your tastes.
Few New Orleans bars and cafes capture the best of the city as the Napoleon House, which is a 200-year-old landmark that is both casual and unique like the French Quarter. The House's first occupant was Nicholas Girod, who was the mayor of New Orleans. He once offered the residence to Napoleon in 1821. Even though Napoleon never arrived to stay, the name stuck. The Napoleon House is one of the most popular bars in New Orleans, and it was a favorite place for many artists and the writers throughout much of the 20th century. The bar takes you back to earlier times, where you can hear and listen to the music of other classical composers while you enjoy a Pimm‘s Cup and relax.
Over the years, Pat O'Brien's continues to be a special part of New Orleans. It all began after prohibition in 1933, when Pat O'Brien made his speakeasy into a legal bar on St. Peter Street, and called it "Pat O'Brien's." From the French Quarter style architecture and the various drinks, the bar will show you why their motto is "Have Fun!" Speaking of specialty drinks, the bar is well-known for its Hurricanes, which is a fruity red concoction of rum and fruit juices. Aside from the many great drink choices and wonderful atmosphere, Pat O’Brien's also provides good food.
