Sure, it's touristy, but there are reasons Pat O's has been a must-stop on the New Orleans drinking trail since Prohibition. There's plenty of room to spread out, from the elegant side bar and piano bar that flank the carriageway entrance to the lush (and in winter, heated) patio. Friendly staff, an easy camaraderie among patrons, and a signature drink—the pink, fruity, and extremely potent Hurricane, which comes with a souvenir glass—make this French Quarter stalwart
a pleasant afternoon diversion. Expect a line on weekend nights, and if you don't want your glass, return it for the deposit.

a must on the list - perhaps to get your night rolling. Sit outside in the middle of their venue under the stars in the patio area...the gleam and sound of the fire/water fountain in copper vessel sets the tone. Twinkle lights and music infused from the inside venue alludes to the Nola surroundings. Get warmed up on some mighty powered hurricanes (the best we found in the town)! ... and off to the piano bar! FUN FUN! you might get lucky and
here the tunes from the pizza pan player man! He was the best!
