We've been going to New Orleans for many years and just about every night we wind up at the Funky Pirate on Bourbon St. The staff, the music, and Al Carson and his band are so terrific and engaging you can't help but love it. When I've had a bad day at work, I put on my Big Al Carson CD, pour a glass of wine, close my eyes and melt back to New Orleans and the Funky Pirate.
I would travel back to New Orleans from Tennessee just to spend another evening at the Funky Pirate. The drinks are awesome! While here be sure to order yourself a Hand Grenade. It's a drink that you'll definitely never forget. If you're a music lover, make plans to visit the Funky Pirate and enjoy the sounds of Big Al Carson. He's an amazing blue singer with an amazing stage presence. His music is sure to get stuck in your head and put a smile on your face. The atmosphere at the Funky Pirate is great. When you're there, you feel like everyone's your friend. Hmmm...maybe that's the Hand Grenade. Whatever it is, it's worth making plans to spend an evening or even just a couple hours with Big Al Carson and everyone else at the Funky Pirate.

I have traveled to the great city of New Orleans since 1994. It has honestly changed my life-my outlook, my perspective, my heart. The Pirate has been a part of that since day one. Big Al Carson is a must see as he engages the crowd so very well. The talent this club draws is excellent-as most clubs in the Quarter-but dont miss this place. You will not regret it, I promise. Hope to see you there! I'm the long-hair Al is teasing.

Great place - a must do for tourists and locals. Big Al Carson is a supreme entertainer. His rapport with the crowd makes this the most fun you can have in a New Orleans Blues Bar. The staff are attentive and you'll never find yourself waiting for your drink .
