Cocktail Party!

418 Dauphine St
New Orleans, LA 70112, US

"The Hermann House is a beautiful venue for a casual cocktail party of ~80 people or less. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is because of the sales manager. She is VERY difficult to work with, but worth it because the venue is so great."

Accommodations:

Dauphine Orleans Hotel - Accommodations - 415 Dauphine Street, New Orleans, LA, United States

Dauphine Orleans Hotel

415 Dauphine Street

Accommodations:

Doubletree Hotel New Orleans - Accommodations - 300 Canal Street, New Orleans, LA, United States

Doubletree Hotel New Orleans

300 Canal Street
New Orleans, LA, United States

Eat:

Bourbon House ($$)

144 Bourbon Street
New Orleans, LA, United States

"If you were thinking of going to Acme Oyster House…trust me, go here instead! One of our favorite oyster bars in the city, Bourbon House has a very decent and affordable menu. This restaurant feels a little more “corporate” than some of the other local places, but the food is good and the bourbon selection is excellent."

Eat:

Court of Two Sisters

613 Royal Street
New Orleans, LA, United States

Eat:

GW Fins ($$$$)

808 Bienville Street
New Orleans, LA, United States

"One of the finest restaurants in the Quarter, this place is phenomenal. GW Fins specializes in local seafood and terrific service. The best seared yellow fin tuna I’ve ever had can be found here, and has many other great seafood items. Pricey, but well worth it."

Eat:

Irene's Cuisine ($$$)

539 Saint Philip Street
New Orleans, LA, United States

"Although it doesn’t look like much on the outside, a very classic and cozy New Orleans staple can be found inside. Irene’s is home-style Creole, but it features a little bit for everyone. This place does tend to fill up for dinner, so make reservations. And if you make reservations…don’t get plastered and start lighting things on fire outside (Chris, I’m lookin’ at YOU)."

Eat:

Jacques-Imo's ($$$$)

8324 Oak Street
New Orleans, LA, United States

"If there was one restaurant I could recommend above all others, this would be it. Featuring an extremely eclectic Cajun menu (such as rabbit, duck, alligator, etc.), the food will not disappoint. The restaurant is very casual (think Diners and Dives) and is a bit pricey, but also was one of the best complete meals I’ve ever had. Jacques-Imo’s is located about a 15-minute drive outside the Quarter on Oak Street, but may be accessible via the St. Charles street trolley. Get there early!"

Eat:

Johnny's Po-Boys ($)

511 Saint Louis Street
New Orleans, LA, United States

"Alli and I have tried po’boys far and wide in New Orleans, and this is one of our favorites. Johnny’s is a dive and only takes cash, but has an outstanding selection of unique po’boys and is every bit as good (if not better) than the more touristy and high priced Mother’s Po’Boys. Johnny’s closes early, so don’t plan on eating there past 5pm."

Eat:

Lüke ($$$)

333 Saint Charles Avenue
New Orleans, LA, United States

"This is arguably the best of New Orleans’ Chef John Besh’s restaurants, Luke is located a short walk across Canal Street in the “CBD” next to the Hilton. Luke features authentic Creole cooking mixed with a modern twist. I highly recommend the Matzo ball soup! They have a good weekend brunch with some specials, and also have a very decent happy hour."

Eat:

Royal House ($$)

441 Royal Street
New Orleans, LA, United States

"You have to be a little careful with the Quarter’s “row” restaurants with the maître d’s out front waiving you in, but this place is legit. Located right across from the Omni, this corner restaurant with balcony seating has many of New Orleans’ favorite dishes (étoufeé, gumbo, etc.) and is quite good and reasonably priced."

Eat:

Sylvain ($$)

625 Chartres Street
New Orleans, LA, United States

Coffee:

Café du Monde ($)

800 Decatur Street
New Orleans, LA, United States

"The world famous café that serves beignets and café olés 24/7/365. This place does become a tourist trap in the middle of the day and early afternoon, but is also an evening/late night favorite of the locals too."

Coffee:

The Old Coffee Pot Restaurant ($$)

714 Saint Peter Street
New Orleans, LA, United States

"If you are looking for a nice Creole-style breakfast/brunch/lunch in the Quarter, this is your best bet. A local favorite, The Coffee Pot features nice courtyard seating and great local flavors. They also are the only remaining place in New Orleans that still serves Callas Cakes – an old creole favorite of spices and long grain rice that is formed into a ball and deep fried, and then served over creamy grits."

Listen:

Frenchman Street

Frenchmen St
New Orleans, Louisiana, US

"Frenchmen Street is what Bourbon Street used to be 60 years ago – an eclectic mix of authentic music bars from the area populated almost exclusively by New Orleans’ locals. This is my favorite area of the city, and features the best TRUE New Orleans music you’ll find. Make sure to walk down to Decatur Street and take Decatur up to Esplanade/Frenchmen Street for the safest route. Once down there, walk around and take in the sounds and find a band you like. Music will start around 6pm nightly and not end until the wee hours of the morning. Favorite clubs down here include Balcony Music Club, The Maison, Blue Nile, Spotted Cat Music Club, and D.B.A."

Listen:

Funky Pirate

727 Bourbon Street
New Orleans, LA, United States

"Don’t confuse this bar with the MANY other pirate-themed bars in the city! Although it looks like your typical Bourbon Street cover-band bar, the Funky Pirate gets in good blues bands on a nightly basis. The music tends to start and end earlier here than most Quarter clubs."

Listen:

Irvin Mayfield’s Jazz Playhouse

300 Bourbon Street
New Orleans, LA, United States

"One of the best and most authentic jazz bars you’ll find in the Quarter. Located in the Royal Sonesta Hotel right on Bourbon, this is far from the wild scene found on most the street. Featuring great live brass-jazz on Saturday nights and other styles nightly, and if you are lucky you can catch Irvin Mayfield himself playing with a group well into the night. Also, has a daily happy hour from 5-8pm with great drink and food specials."

Listen:

Preservation Hall

726 Saint Peter Street
New Orleans, LA, United States

"Come see the world famous jazz hall just off of Bourbon. Live jazz is played every night from 8-11pm, tickets are $15, and this is a must see if you can. The hall is a classic with absolutely no frills (including air conditioning), but is a great time with great music."
