Bourbon Street, New Orleans, USA
Bourbon Caddesi, New Orleans, USA
Bourbon Street (French: Rue Bourbon) is a famous and historic street that spans the length of the French Quarter in New Orleans, Louisiana. When founded in 1718, the city was originally centered around the French Quarter. New Orleans has since expanded, but “The Quarter” remains the cultural hub, and Bourbon Street is the street best known by visitors.
The most popular section of Bourbon Street is “Upper Bourbon Street”, an eight-block section of popular tourist attractions. Bourbon Street begins at Canal Street (across Canal is Carondelet Street in the New Orleans Central Business District).
The straight street continues downriver, southwest to northeast a few blocks from and roughly paralleling the Mississippi River, and comes to its terminus at Pauger Street in the Faubourg Marigny. (In the 19th century, Pauger was named as a continuation of Bourbon Street.) Bourbon Street was named in honor of the House of Bourbon, the ruling French Royal Family, at the time of the city’s founding.
The street is home to many bars, restaurants, strip clubs, as well as t-shirt and souvenir shops. The upper end of Bourbon Street towards Canal Street is home to many of the French Quarter’s strip clubs. These include Rick’s Cabaret, Temptations, and Larry Flynt’s Barely Legal Club. Towards the central section of Bourbon Street one can find many famous bars including Johnny White’s, The Famous Door, Razzoo and The Cat’s Meow.

Im trying to make quick money and this is the only way I know how. But just how much money a night would I be taking home?
depends on the tips and what’s in town.
if it’s really slow you could end up with zip, if it’s a big party crowd sky is the limit.
but be aware it’s a tough job and not for the faint of heart.
how are your feet? you’ll be on them a lot

My friends and I will be going to the Alabama/LSU game and thought we’d spend a night or two in New Orleans. I’ve been there before for Mardis Gras and I know how crazy that can be. I wanted to know what Bourbon Street is like in the off season. Should we bring beads (and yes, we know that’s touristy, but we don’t mind 😉 Is it worth it to get a hotel with a balcony overlooking Bourbon?
It won’t be as crazy as Mardi Gras (nothing is) but there should be lots of people in town for the game. The weather in November is also usually nice.
There are only two (2) hotels with balcony rooms overlooking Bourbn Street:
Ramada Inn on Bourbon
Balcony rooms can be fun. They also tend to be noisy (from the crowd on the street all night). If sleep is important don’t get a balcony room. You don’t need beeds and it’s actually against the law to throw them from the balcony to the crowd. Yes, people do it and the police don’t interfere unless it becomes a problem. If hotel security/management or the police tell you to stop then stop.
