Keep expectations at a minimum and you'll love it. Dive bar and pub that makes up for sophistication with a rough ambiance and fun!

I popped into The Kerry for an afternoon pint and really liked the look of it. Has the look of a good pub that has been around a while. Sadly, though, it seems to be coasting on what past it may have had. The server...More

Nice little hole-in-the-wall in the Quarter. They had a good solo act playing and the atmosphere was nice. Only made it there once during the week we stayed, but I would go back.

Place is quaint & typical for New Orleans. Bartender was friendly & was attentive. Even though.... The bartender didn't keep a tab or really for our drinks. So when it came to pay out he decided to throw a number out for our tab. We...More

I stopped in for an afternoon respite and they make a mean "Lemon Drop Martini." We had good conversation and it was a nice port in the storm.

First of all, this place had only three people in it on a Saturday night at 8:00 PM despite the fact they had live music. The music was just ok. Probably the reason no one was there is that the bartender is a total jerk....More

They serve Smithwicks, which can be hard to find at times. Steve is a pretty cool guy to watch a rugby game with. There's a pool table and small stage for local musicians.

Big bartender guy was a jerk. I asked to use the restroom before I ordered and he insisted that I order a drink first. I'm not letting that sit out on the bar to be tampered with so I went elsewhere. It was an embarrassing...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
