Must Do French Quarter Feb 16, 2012
Probably one of the most well known places in the French Quarter. Founded in 1933 and been at its current location since 1942. I'm sure New Orleans has plenty of better food options but you don't go to Pat O'Briens for fine dining. You go for their famous Hurricane (it's a fruity concoction with 4oz of rum in it) and the atmosphere. It's $11 for the standard sized Hurricane and you get to keep a souvenir glass that they'll pack for you or turn it in at the bar for a $3 refund. We sat outdoors in the courtyard patio and it was busy, lively and buzzing both in the afternoon as well evening (this is during Mardi Gras though). There's also a piano bar that you can sing along with. It's probably as touristy as it gets but it's something you do when you visit New Orleans and the French Quarter. They also have a "to go" window if you'd rather just grab a quick drink and be on your way.

Interesting mix of a place Feb 05, 2011
Pat O'Briens was recommended to us from before we even left for New Orleans. Two friends and I visited early on New Year's Eve (from 17:30-22:00) in December 2010.

Dinner was mediocre with unsurprising prices. We sat outside in the courtyard (the only place TO eat here) which was fine until it started spitting. Our server and a manager got us under an umbrella quickly. Mostly Pat's is famous for its piano bar. The drinks in here are pretty expensive and you will probably have to wait QUITE a while to get in so be warned! You can make requests for songs to be played but you will have more fun if you stay long enough to get your song played and/or enjoy American college fight songs.

Very fun place Oct 25, 2010
This is a great place to visit while in New Orleans. I spent most of my time there in the piano bar, which was a bit crowded, but very entertaining. There is a nice fountain outside, which is a nice spot to stop for a photo.

Great bar / club - bigger than you might think Mar 06, 2010
I had a great time here and met some great people in the process. The hurricane is a classic cocktail here, but it can give you a big sugar rush (ignoring the alcohol :)). Enjoy!

Well, if you are in New Orleans, you HAVE TO visit Pat O' Brien's and have the famous or infamouus Hurricane.

The atmosphere is great. Of course it's full of tourist, but it's great. You can also keep the glass as souvenier. I packed it really carefully, so I have a nice glass at home now. The Hurricane can be sweet, but it can be pretty strong too, so be careful.

You will enjoy the patio and its tables. The fire fountain is great. There are always standing people waiting for empty seats.

This is one of those things that you just have to do to have a full New Orleans experience.

I enjoy this bar for its chill scene. It does get crowded but not sweaty like any other dance club. Although it does have plenty of different rooms to hang out, i love the outdoor patio because it is large and perfect to meet people. in the center of the courtyard, there is this fountain with fire. it is pretty but on a warm, humid night, it could get really hot. but, it is a good conversation piece if you want to meet people. of course, when it is raining, it is not as fun to hang out in the courtyard, but if you are resourceful (or go to one of the rooms), you can still enjoy a rainy day at pat o'briens. i am not much of a hurricane drinker but people seem to like those made by pat o'brien bartenders.
