Top Nightlife Experiences in New Orleans

New Orleans, aka the Big Easy, is known far and wide for its easy good times. From Bourbon Street to Frenchmen, there are more music halls, pubs, taverns, clubs, and funky jazz rooms around every corner in New Orleans than probably any other city in the United States. Such is the siren call of this ancient and mysterious city, and every year millions come to town in answer. During Mardi Gras, the whole city turns out to celebrate Fat Tuesday, though it seems every other weekend is some celebration of some sort.

The birthplace of Jazz, New Orleans has both big city music clubs like the Red Room and small, intimate affairs like Snug Harbor. For the wild and crazy party night, head to Bourbon Street—you’ll find more cover bands and shot girls here than you can throw your beads at. Pat O’Briens has the popular Hurricane drink of Jimmy Buffet fame, while the Tropical Isle serves their signature Hand Grenade to throngs of thirsty patrons. 

For authentic New Orleans music, head to the edge of the quarter and explore Frenchmen Street. Snug Harbor provides an intimate Jazz venue, while The Spotted Cat and D.B.A. specialize in more energetic brass. Harrah’s Casio provides the late night gambling, and Café Du Monde is always there to answer any late night hunger cravings you may get with piping hot beignets and chicory coffee—a perfect end to a long night out in New Orleans.
