Nightlife and Entertainment in New Orleans

Edit This

New Orleans, knows how to party -- obviously. One of the biggest parties on planet earth -- Mardi Gras, takes place every year here, and the world's biggest jazz and blues festivals. And here's a few more reasons why New Orleans holds the crown for America's biggest party town: it's legal to drink on the streets -- any street will do, alcohol is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, and some New Orleans bars even have walk-up windows, you know -- where you can order booze in a plastic "to go" cup, then simply walk off onto the streets of New Orleans.

A great place to get started is Pat O'Brien's. Pat O'Briens is a first stop for the traditional New Orleans drink - the hurricane. The Main Bar is a great place with a long wooden bar and an "old bar" feel. Hurricanes are strong drinks, so if you are interested in something lighter try the Rainstorm, which is made with Malibu rum. Pat O'Brien's is located at 718 St. Peter Street, New Orleans LA, 70116, Ph: 504-525-4823, E-mail: hurricane@patobriens.com, www.patobriens.com.

Razoo Club & Patio

Edit This

Razoo Club & Patio is arguably one of the wildest venues of its type in the French Quarter. It features a medium-sized dancefloor at the foot of a stage, on which an animateur entertains the crowd. There are full-size bars on either side of the dancefloor, and the back opens to a decent-sized patio, complete with a water fountain. The patio contains another full-size bar, along with two small bars that sell beer and shots only. This place plays party music, including bascially any songs of the rock, pop, and hip-hop genres that one may feel inclined to shake it to. The crowd more..
