I'm sorry, I have to step in. All night long the manager was screaming at his staff. Then he beat up a teenager for drawing on the sidewalk with chalk. He must be on druggs or something because he acts like a kid.

Great Bar no lights only candle Lit!!!

This is a fun old bar with tons of atmosphere. It is really great No lights just candle lit. It has a great piano bar in the back of the bar. Its a ways to walk off of Bourbon Street but worth the walk give it a try!!!

A piece of Nola History

I wish I hadn?t taken so long to pay my respects to this New Orleans institution. My husband and I have many vivid memories of New Orleans, most of them filled with personalities, liquor and great music. Our night a La Fifitte?s is one of our most vivid. \r \r After a great dinner and several stops at other bars down Bourbon and Royal we made it Lafitte?s. We had no tourists? aspirations, we just a happened on the ... view more

More laid-back than the busier part of Bourbon Street

Our first visit was mid-afternoon during the week. It was a steaming hot day, and the cool dark interior was just what we needed. The place was pretty quiet, save for a table of 4 who inexplicably ordered Cokes in the oldest bar in the land. We had a couple of Abita Ambers, savoring the feel of the establishment's history in the exposed brick walls, the ancient floorboards, the fireplace where we guess the blacksm... view more

Watch out for those grape VOODOO slushies...

The fact that it is mainly lit by candelight just adds the ambience and the history of the place. \r I think it was my favorite bar on Bourbon Street. Inexpensive, the drinks are GREAT and Chris the Bartender serves as some great eyecandy....;)

A New Orleans Classic!

One bar you cannot miss while in New Orleans. Reasonably priced drinks, a semi-intoxicated musician at the piano, and a million dollars worth of ambiance. Claims to be the oldest bar in the U.S., but who knows? Either way, worth a stop before going to the Clover Grill for a delicious burger or side of eggs. Countless children may be attributed to the romantic atmosphere of Lafitte's.

so loud that it is impossible to even order a drink!

Lafitte's used to be a wonderful place to drop in, have a drink, and enjoy the fantastic, candlelit atmosphere while listening to some great old songs on the not-overly-loud jukebox. Post-Katrina, management has made some changes, and not for the good. The previous jukebox selections have been replaced with popular songs, and the volume level has been turned up to a deafening level. In addition, at night they will... view more
