I must say this is the one of the best in restaurant in New Orleans. I had one of their famous Hurricanes and It was really delicious .Staff was friendly and the atmosphere was wonderful. Make sure to go into the Piano Bar as well as the courtyard. Highly recommended!

The bar at Pat O'Brien's is a great place to stop on a hot afternoon to cool off with a huge, incredibly refreshing Hurricane, play the jukebox, and relax for a while. It's really crowded and loud at night, so we liked it better during the day. Across from the bar is a gigantic cocktail lounge with a bar and lots of tables and chairs, but it fills to overflowing at night. Two piano players are featured at night (not sure if it's just on weekends), but they don't live up to the atmos...view morephere of either New Orleans or this great lounge. They play songs the audience can sing along to, but not very good ones. We actually heard them do Def Leppard's ""Pour Some Sugar on Me""--yikes! It would be so much better if they had jazz performers. Still, the Hurricanes were the best we tasted, and it's a fun place, so go!view less
i enjoy this bar for its chill scene. it does get crowded but not sweaty like any other dance club. although it does have plenty of different rooms to hang out, i love the outdoor patio because it is large and perfect to meet people. of course, when it is raining, it is not as fun, but if you are resourceful (or go to one of the rooms), you can still enjoy a rainy day at pat o'briens. i am not much of a hurricane drinker but people seem to like those made by pat o'brien bartenders.
If you like your drinks with a touch of citrus to it, then try the hurricane. I try to stay away because its really popular with the Bourbon tourists but if you're in a group then its fine to hang here for a while and them move on to many more holes in the wall.
I promise, it is not some kind of green mixed drink!!! My first time there, the bartender fixed me up. Gave me a double! Okay, for those who (like me) actually may not know, a mint julep is bourbon whiskey with crushed mint leaves and nothing else. It is really good, if you like straight whiskey.
Yes it's a tourist trap (and I hate tourist traps) but I still love Pat O'Briens.
Mostly go there for the drinks since there are tons of better dining locations in New Orelans.
I figured the hurricanes would be watered down and overly sugary. However after sitting around for a couple of hours these things will put even the strongest on their butts.
