Editorial Review

by Contributor at Citysearch, April 03, 2006

Home of the hurricane, this expansive, crowded tourist destination still offers a touch of class.
The Scene
A brick-lined entranceway leads to a small, cozy meeting space. It's an intimate place for a quiet drink--if you manage to arrive before it becomes packed with college kids. Directly across sits a much more spacious piano bar with beer steins hanging from the ceiling for a nice decorative touch. Spiral staircases leading up to the bathrooms lend a stately elegance.

The Draw
The sprawling patio-courtyard area is where the action is; its centerpiece is the famous flaming fountain. Expect tables full of rowdy college kids, tourists and young debs. Although the bloody mary is top-notch, the hurricane is Pat O's signature drink. This heady rum-based concoction is renowned for its potency and the large lamp-shaped glass it comes in. The Courtyard Restaurant serves bar bites ranging from crawfish nachos to catfish strips, and traditional entrees including red beans and rice and jambalaya.

The bar at Pat O'Brien's is a great place to stop on a hot afternoon to cool off with a huge, incredibly refreshing Hurricane, play the jukebox, and relax for a while. It's really crowded and loud... More >

Before we visited New Orleans we were told about Pat O'Brien's bar. We were also told to beware of the hurricanes. Coming from Florida I smartly replied that we have hurricanes. They said not like... More >
