what is there to do in bourbon street?

what is their nightlife all about what bars or clubs to visit on bourbon street …never been to New Orleans before and happen to be visiting for the weekend so just focus on nightlife

thanks
or as an alternative i hear they have ghost tours are there any good?

One reason New Orleans is famous (infamous?) for partying is – unlike most of the USA – the City has no law prohibiting the consumption of alcoholic beverages on a public street or sidewalk. That means you can get drinks "to go" in bars & clubs and walk around with them outside. There IS a law prohibiting glass or metal containers, so be sure to get a paper or plastic "go cup" if you want to do that. There is a limit to how interesting it might be to walk up & down Bourbon (or anywhere else) and look at the other people with "go cups", but try it once.

Bourbon Street is best known for wild partying at a variety of bars, wild crowds during Mardi Gras (it was in February) and strip clubs. Historically, Bourbon is known for music clubs – especially Jazz clubs.

This is a very incomplete guide to bars & clubs: www.neworleanscheapdrinks.com

About certain alcoholic beverages: Realize that some famous drinks are VERY potent compared with regular cocktails that have only 1 to 1 ½ ounces of alcohol. For example, a Hurricane is basically 3 or 4 ounces of rum in something like red Kool-Aid, and a Hand Grenade has at least 4 ½ ounces of Everclear + rum + vodka mixed with melon liquor. They don’t necessarily taste like an alcoholic beverage and it is easy to over-indulge.

There is always music, but the bands change: Go to www.bestofneworleans.com and click on Music then Listings or to www.offbeat.com and click on Listings, then Music.

Preservation Hall has traditional live Jazz, and doesn’t serve alcohol so all ages are welcome: www.preservationhall.com

Note that music clubs often advertise "No Cover", meaning there is no charge for entering. However, clubs with "No Cover" often require that customers buy a beverage each for every "set " of music (which can be every 20 minutes) so KNOW THE PRICE before you sit down. Clubs do that because some people will sit in the club all evening drinking nothing (clubs only make money from the drinks they sell – not from the music). It is also a good idea to pay for each round of drinks (in clubs on Bourbon Street) as it is delivered so there can’t be any confusion at the end of the evening.

There are hundreds of restaurants downtown and much depends on what you like. The weekly free magazine "Gambit" has a partial list of restaurants on their website plus reviews: http://bestofneworleans.com/gyrobase/Dining

However, there is much more to the French Quarter than Bourbon Street – even for bars & clubs. Go to www.frenchquarter.com for more ideas about things to do.

Hope you have a great time!

Best way to to visit the French Quarter and Bourbon Street?

Me and my friends are going to plan a weekend road trip to New Orleans.None of us have ever been to New Orleans. We like to drink and have a good time. We also want to visit Bourbon St. What is the best way to do this? Hotel suggestions? Any transportation to Bourbon St? Taxi prices? Must do or see things?. We are trying to do this as cheep as possible, but any help is appreciated.

I can’t add much to who dat’s answer except I like the Hotel St. Marie. It’s inexpensive (about $60 a night), clean, and it has a pool. It’s like so close to Bourbon St. it’s crazy. I don’t know if they have parking, I never drive there. Their sister hotel is the St. Pierre up the street. Also inexpensive but no pool.
Have fun!!!

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.
