One Eyed Jacks
All of the finer points of El Matador and The Shim Sham Club rolled into one hip venue. The club offers live jazz, funk, and rock as well as sexy burlesque shows that can't be found anywhere else.
If you happen to be in town on a Thursday, you're gonna wanna go to Jacks for their 80's night. Trust me! Think go-go dancers on platforms and cheesy 80's movies projected on a giant screen in the coolest, most bordello-y venue in all of New Orleans! Always a good time :) The rest of the week One…
Probably the best dance club in the quarter. Also an entertainment venue so check ahead to see what is happening when you want to visit
Really awesome venue for shows and dance parties. In the heart of the quarter.
“VOODOO - There's more to voodoo than pin cushions and dolls. Learn about the historical and spiritual significance of the religion–and the woman who helped revive it in the city–at this store that triples as a museum and shrine. You'll find a mix of kitschy souvenirs up front and a spiritual advisor in the back, who performs readings just by feeling your pressure points. Whether you're a believer or not, Marie Laveau's is a spot that's uniquely New Orleans. Marie Laveau's House of Voodoo and Reverend Zombie's Voodoo Shop are centrally located in the French Quarter. Locals, tourists and the strangely curious have enjoyed the stores since Marie Laveau's first opened in 1988.”
“SEAFOOD - Ernst Cafe has existed in the Warehouse District of New Orleans for over a century, nestled in a Pre-Civl War structure. The atmosphere is a friendly, family type of setting where talking, chattering and having a good time are all allowed. Ernst is known for having "Crawfish Fridays" during crawfish season, where you can get a tray of the famed shellfish and enjoy discounts on the local brew as well (Abita). If you happen to visit outside of the normal crawfish season, they always serve up a mean crawfish etouffee which is something everyone visiting New Orleans should try.”
“CBD SEAFOOD - Grand Isle is the strip of land off mainland Louisiana known for its amazing fishing. Grand Isle Restaurant, with its menu of fresh local seafood and vintage photos channeling the same gulf goodness as its namesake. Situated on busy Fulton Street, Grand Isle lassos a lot of flavor in gulf specialties like smoked fried oysters with garlic aioli and a version of grilled oysters with havarti and tasso that is completely off the hook.The smoked drum chowder with roasted corn is another treat, and you can't miss with anything seafood. steak specials or the winning combo of confit pork cheek and baby clams served with crunchy popcorn rice pilaf. ”
