You’ve heard about the incomparable New Orleans cuisine -- you’ve wondered what distinguishes it from say, Peoria, or Poughkeepsie or Pompano Beach. Built in the late 1800s and located at the corner of Bourbon and St. Peter Streets, the Retrouvailles Bistro is known for its juicy steaks, fresh Louisiana seafood, and Creole and Cajun specialties. Its clientele ranges from locals who love dining on one of the French Quarter’s biggest balconies to celebrities who want to experience an authentic New Orleans restaurant. The Retrouvailles Bistro also offers an extensive wine list to accompany your meal.

Retrouvailles Bistro sits on one of the busiest corners of Bourbon Street, and features one of the largest wrap around balconies in the entire French Quarter. If you really want to see what all the hoopla is about, put yourself above it all on the balcony and just watch. Right this way – your table’s waiting.


Dinner at the Embers was almost enough to write home about, but the night is young. Just cross the street and let THE KRAZY KORNER swallow you up for a full night of everything you ever hoped the French Quarter might be and so much more. Can one place offer the best Cajun rhythms in town and then turn right around and dig deep into rhythm and blues? Uh – yeah! Krazy Korner can. Did you ever imagine yourself in a Bourbon Street bar playing the washboard at 3 a.m.? We thought so – here’s your chance.

The Krazy Korner is designed to let you go a little Krazy, dance the night away, enjoy some Krazy cocktails at moderate prices and meet some of the most offbeat characters you’re likely to find in the city. There’s only one way you can honestly tell your friends you’ve “been there and got the t-shirt.” But what will people say? Hey – what happens at The Krazy Korner stays deep inside.


Okay, time to ‘fess up – what did you really come to New Orleans for? Come on – all together now - HUGE ASS BEER! There is only one place in the French Quarter you can get an OFFICIAL HUGE ASS BEER! It’s The Steak Pit on Bourbon Street, the only place you can find sweet potato fries or eggplant fries to wash down your H.A.B. And we say buy the t-shirt first at the door – Huge Ass Beers taste so much better when your shirt announces what you’re drinking. And stay for dinner, because if you’re going to down a H.A.B. you need some Jim Bean barbecued baby back ribs.

But before you dive into a full meal, try the jalapeno peppers stuffed with seasoned crab meat. Chances are you’ll need some more H.A.B.’s. And if you’re planning a beer bash, order your beer, t-shirts and go-cups from Steak Pit. Hey, you’ve got to have something to prove you did New Orleans right. Huge Ass Beers Rock.


Ask many first time New Orleans visitors what they’ll remember most about the French Quarter and you’ll hear a chorus of “The Old Opera House.” If you’re looking for music like Dwayne Dopsie and the Zydeco hellraisers, or Jimmy Thibodeaux's Cajun band, this is your place. And you don’t have to wait until way after dark to hear it, because it’s happening all the time, even during the 3-for-1 happy hour in the late afternoon. Rhythm and blues, jazz, Zydeco, chonk-a-chonk – everybody plays The Old Opera House, where the atmosphere will remind you of your favorite pub -- bare brick walls and all.

Even though it’s located in the heart of the tourist district, locals flock to The Old Opera House. Some of the biggest names in the music business go their start at this club, and it’s not unheard of for some of them to pop in and play a set with the band. You wouldn’t want to miss that, would you?
