Two restaurants – Enough food for a full meal
Pat O’Brien’s – Inventor of the infamous “Hurricane” Cocktail and the dueling pianos
Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop – One of the oldest bars in America
Cat’s Meow – World-famous karaoke bar

Various other spots of interest along the way

You also learn about Louis Armstrong, the Storyville Red Light District, what to do on Bourbon Street, and other great places for live jazz in New Orleans (like Frenchmen Street!).

  • Chevron down Can vegetarians, pescatarians, or vegans attend?
  • While we can offer substitutions for most dishes to pescatarians, we cannot accommodate vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, kosher, or low salt diets.

  • Chevron down How much walking will there be?
  • On this tour, you will walk approximately half a mile.

  • Chevron down What if someone in my party is allergic to shellfish?
  • We can offer substitutions for most dishes to those with shellfish allergies. Please be sure to mention this when booking your tickets.

  • Chevron down What if it’s raining?
  • Our tours run rain or shine; please bring an umbrella or poncho in order to stay dry during the tour. If the weather is severe enough that it poses a danger, we will call you to explain our decision and discuss alternatives (this is why it’s very important to list a good cell phone number when booking online!).  If we cancel a tour because of severe weather, all guests will be given a full refund.

  • Chevron down How large are the tour groups?
  • This tour will max out at 8 guests.  We pride ourselves on small group sizes so you’ll never be a part of one of those massive tour groups!

  • Chevron down What is the minimum age?
  • Because the tour will visit bars, everyone in the party must be 21 or older (the legal drinking age in Louisiana).

  • Chevron down Can I bring my baby in a stroller?
  • Since they will not be allowed into the bars, we unfortunately cannot allow children of any age.

  • Chevron down Is this just a pub crawl?
  • This is definitely NOT a pub crawl!  Instead, think of this as an orientation to the French Quarter nightlife scene.  Those showing up already inebriated will be asked to leave the tour with no refund given.
