  • Address: Bourbon Street
  • Hours:

The infamous Bourbon Street, also known as Rue Bourbon, conjures up images of endless partying, drinks of all shapes and sizes, strips clubs, bachelorette parties, and of course, Mardi Gras. The Las Vegas comparisons are well deserved with enough alcohol and revelry to rival Sin City for the title of America's party capital.

Outside of Mardi Gras season, visitors flock to Bourbon Street for its well-known drinking establishments including the Old Absinthe House, Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop, Johnny White's Bar, not to mention Pat O'Brien's- home of the hurricane cocktail and dueling piano bar.

Practical Info

Bourbon Street is anything but PG- rated, even during the day, so leave the kids at the hotel. Many of the Mardi Gras floats and parades end their routes in the French Quarter near Bourbon Street, so take your beads and experience New Orleans premiere party destination. As you move further down Bourbon Street there are also a number of gay discos and establishments that sponsor the Southern Decadence festival over Labor Day.
