6 old ladies doing New Orleans

gertruderottencrotch Oct 25, 2011 02:07 PM

Hello Folks. I have been to New Orleans 5 times, and have done just about everything imaginable there.
Myself and 5 newbies are going this wekend for 5 days. Is there any really funky bars or restaurants that are very novel to go to. I know Burbon street has a bunch, but just looking for some off normal places.

Thanks for your time

    The Carousel bar in the monteleone hotel on royal is a must. Liuzzas in mid city on north telemachus also the crescent city steak house on broad.are very new orleans and funky. Try out Snake and Jakes Christmas club lounge on oakstreet get there about four in the morning and drink pabst or schlitz till the sun shines. That ought to be a good start.

      Have you been to the Green Goddess? The food is fabulous and they have an extensive drink menu. They have a website with all the info if you want to google it. We love the Napoleon House too, sitting in the courtyard is fun. You've probably been there though. With this weather I'd try to enjoy some outside dining and drinking and both are available at the places I mentioned.

        since you've been there Frenchmen Street has boomed with clubs and restaurants, so check out that area. also, Banks Street in Midcity has lots of cool bars and food joints.

          Saturn Bar is very weird. I used to frequent Laissez les Bons Temps Roulez on Magazine quite a bit: the Maple Leaf is great; if you haven't gone to the Columns Hotel you'll love it! If you want a real taste of the Marigny the Friendly Bar and Big Daddy's are hoots.
