"Unique Bourbon Street Bar"
If you are down on Bourbon Street and your feet are tired from walking and you have had your fill of raucous mayhem, you need only walk a little further to find this famous bar. Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop Bar is (as its name implies) located in a former blacksmith's shop and safe house for smugglers during the 1800s. It boasts of having survived the fire that burned down the French Quarter in the late 1800s and being the oldest building to house a bar in the United States. In the back of the bar, a musician plays a grand piano and croons through drunken sing-a-longs like Piano Man and You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling. The bar has reasonably priced drinks compared to many of its Bourbon Street counterparts.

Tropical Isle is the home of the world famous Hand Grenade. The neon green specialty drink is considered the strongest beverage in New Orleans, and it tastes like it. The bar itself is nothing more than an homage to its drink. There are large stuffed Hand Grenades covering the walls and ceilings, glowing neon in the black-light. Although famous, Tropical Isle is representative of many of the “bars” you find on Bourbon Street—a place where you stop, grab a “Go-Cup” and keep walking.

With the growth of New Orleans, Mississippi River Bottom has become a cool spot and is frequented by people belonging to all walks of life. As with other bars in the neighborhood, friendliness and a simple decor set the scene. Head here for drinks and bar snacks, and to pass your time, you can try your hand at a game of pool. An outdoor patio overlooking the river is a good setting to end your day with cool glass of beer, while the locals cheer on their victory shuffling weights over the board.

After years of performing as one of New Orleans' top musicians, Irvin Mayfield is giving the city's other notable talent a place to perform. Irvin Mayfield's Jazz Playhouse, located inside of the Royal Sonesta Hotel on Bourbon Street, entertains the jazz enthusiast alongside the casual listener with cocktails and nightly performances by notable musicians like Bob French and the Original Tuxedo Jazz Band, Shamarr Allen, and Jason Marsalis. While there generally is no cover charge to enjoy an evening at the Jazz Playhouse, a nominal cover charge may apply for special events. - Bethany Culp

Hi Ho Lounge is a great live music venue in the downtown area of New Orleans, the birthplace of Jazz. Most of the shows are live jazz and the atmosphere is of a casual local bar, where the crowd is fairly regular and knows each other. They also have a few options for food and the drinks come at affordable prices. A great place to hang out with your group of friends or to make new ones.

While the clubs in the French Quarter usually get most of the attention, they are not the only ones that hold good times with even better music. This hot spot in the Carrollton District does require a cab ride, but is well worth the fare. A funky but fun atmosphere characterizes this club that is popular mainly for dancing. Club goers pick their spots then move and groove to the sounds of blues, zydeco and R&B.
