We enjoy visiting the Famous Door when in New Orleans. We like rock and roll music more than rap or jazz so this place suits us to a T. There is no cover and the drinks are reasonable.

Fantastic band. Music is what drew us in. Drinking, dancing and singing...great combo. 2 for 1 drinks, even better. Then the band took a break. I get it, can't play all night. DJ picked up the slack and the bar became a ghost town. Hung...More

We try and hit this place every time we go to New Orleans. It never disappoints. The band plays one classic rock song after another.

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

Over a few years, I've been to the Famous Door several times and it seems they have a different band each time. I hope they don't change to Country and Western music!!! Gotta love that good old Rock & Roll!
Are minors (18 and 20) allowed here?

With parents probably. Everything is allowed in New Orleans!
Hi I was at the Famous Door on February 18th and saw this awesome 80's rockband. I never go the name of the band if anyone could help by giving mje the name of the band that would be great. I have also tried calling the famous door and am unable to get through, as I get a message saying I have the wrong number.
