Top Rated Nightlife in New Orleans

Search Radius (Miles)
Le Chat Noir

This Central Business District haunt, Le Chat Noir, has declared the entire world a stage as long as you have got good music and even better booze. This oh-so-swank Uptown hotspot features both a live piano bar and the Cabaret room, which features a changing lineup of guest stars and revues. The bar is laid back and unassuming, perfect for those looking for a more ‘mature' night out.

Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop 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 and is the best bet on Bourbon Street if your feet are tired from walking and you have had your fill of raucous mayhem.

Carousel Bar & Lounge

John Austin tickles the ivories at this piano bar from Wednesday through Saturday, but the real attraction is the Carousel Bar & Lounge itself at Hotel Monteleone. It's a carousel and really does revolve - all the time. The music goes until late and the cocktails served are out of this world like the "Truffletini" which is a mix of Bailey's Irish Cream with liqueurs. The ambiance has a slight feel of a Moulin Rouge setting, with bold lighting and motifs.

Rawhide 2010

Loud and boisterous are two good words to describe this less than discreet club. If you have never experienced a leather and Levi's bar, you may want to see this one. Chosen as one of the top 10 leather bars in the country, Rawhide has developed quite the reputation. Should you be in town during Mardi Gras, this is the place to go for a unique drag show.

Commander's Palace

No compilation of New Orleans restaurants would be complete without mentioning Commander's Palace. In 1996, it was crowned the "Best Restaurant in the United States," and this renowned establishment continues to live up to its well-deserved reputation with exceptional cuisine and an unforgettable dining experience. One notable aspect is the attentive and efficient wait staff, who strike a perfect balance between attentiveness and formality. Housed in a modified 1880s Victorian house, Commander's Palace offers a range of dining rooms, from large to intimate. The restaurant is particularly acclaimed for its signature turtle soup, while other standout dishes include the Mississippi Roasted Quail Stuffed with Creole Crawfish Sausage, and for dessert, the delightful Creole Bread Pudding Souffle. Complementing the exquisite menu, an excellent wine list is available, complete with recommendations for each entrée.

Cure

Cure has an interesting menu that features carefully crafted cocktails made only from premium ingredients, as well as a selection of the best in bottled brews. This elegant bar, housed in a carefully restored fire station with towering ceilings and picturesque arches, features a cozy courtyard for mild evenings. Hungry patrons can satisfy their cravings with any one or more of their lip-smacking small plate offerings.
