Cats Meow new orleans Cats Meow - Web Site

The World Famous Cats Meow first opened its doors in December of 1989. At the time, karaoke in America was in it's infancy and we were one of the first bars to try out the new entertainment concept. In less than a year, Cats Meow became the largest "on premise" account for both Miller and Budweiser products in the New Orleans area. A year later, Pioneer, the audio company that brought Karaoke to the U.S., named Cats Meow "the BEST Karaoke bar in the world". We hold true to that title today and continue to improve on what was started then with better service, top-notch entertainers, a clean atmosphere and a whole lot of fun!Cats Meow is located in the heart of the historic New Orleans French Quarter. The building is a superb example of 1820's architecture and offers amenities such as two exterior balconies overlooking Bourbon Street, and a cozy interior courtyard. We are located at 701 Bourbon Street on the corner of St. Peter Street, the same street you'll find Pat O'Briens, and the historic Jazz Preservation Hall.

The Old Absinthe House Old Absinthe House - Web Site 

The Old Absinthe House has a legacy following its every heartbeat”, this historic building was built in 1807. Originally the building was used as an importing firm, then converted to a “corner grocery “ of food, tobacco and fine Spanish liquor. In 1874, mixologist, Cayetano Ferrer, created a drink consisting of Absinthe—the “Old Absinthe House Frappe”. The popularity of this venomous green concoction consequently resulted in the coffee house being renamed “Absinthe Room,” and thus a legend was born!

royal street r bar Royal Street Inn & R Bar - Web Site

Located on a hopping corner in the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood of New Orleans and staffed by a bunch of charming folks who love nice beds and good drinks equally, the Royal Street Inn’s goal is to give visitors to the Crescent City a taste of the lush life (and when we say “lush” we mean it in all definitions of the word). Someone once cleverly dubbed the joint a “bed and beverage,” a turn-of-phrase that perfectly sums up what we’re all about – first class hotel rooms above, badass bar below. And no breakfast.

Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop Bar  Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop Bar - Web Site

Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop Barbuilt between 1722 and 1732 by Nicolas Touze, is reputed to be the oldest structure used as a bar in the United States. In 1722, further building is recorded by a realty transfer set down by one Don Andres Almonester. The structure and fence are in the old French Provincial Louis XV or Briquette-Entre-Poteauxe style used in French Louisiana. The building escaped two great fires at the turn of the 19th Century, due to slate roofing. Such slates are presently used by artists as canvases. Between 1772 and 1791, the property is believed to have been used by the Lafitte Brothers, Jean and Pierre as a New Orleans base for their Barataria smuggling operation. The legend is based on the fact that the property was owned by the family of Simon Duroche a.k.a. Castillon and the wily privateer Captain Rene Beluche. Castillon was a rather record-shy adventurer and entrepreneur. Captain Beluche commanded his ship "Spy" in Lafitte's Baratarian fleet. Although the owners of the property, Jean Baptiste Dominica Joly LaPorte probably lived on the premises, it is within reason that the Lafittes could have used the place as city base for negotiations with potential buyers of their goods. It is unlikely that a wealthy Creole would agree to meet at home on Royal Street. Bourbon and St. Phillip was probably regarded as a safe and convenient neutral ground. Like most New Orleans legends, Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop is a gumbo of truth and French, Spanish, African, Cajun and American embellishments.
