Great Hurricanes and bar!
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 atmosphere 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!
