Owner description: The partying never stops on Bourbon Street, the French Quarter's liveliest and wildest thoroughfare, where the rhythmic sounds of jazz, country western, Dixieland and sultry blues permeate the air. Brimming with life, you'll find everything from shopping to music to Cajun food to nightclubs.

This place is unique like no other place and yet it’s dirty and gross too. It’s a must see just once. If you’re a non drinker, this is not the place to hang for long. People watching is fun.

We came down here at 0700 to do a history tour. There were people filing out of one of the bars with fresh beers. There are dozens of places on this street to get a variety of drinks, from the most exclusive bourbons to some hellish drink called a hand grenade. You can get an incredible meal or just one that will soak up the booze. You can hear the blaring music guided by a disk jockey, or listen to a lively jazz band or a world class pianist. Definitely adult world once the sun goes away, but we definitely saw the bars getting busy by 3PM on a Saturday afternoon, so bear that in mind. Incredible place to visit.

Maybe it’s me, but I don’t care for this whole scene. Too many freaks and drunks and petty con men for my tastes. Good places to eat, but you can find good food lots of places.

Ok so bourbon st is smelly and nasty you have all of the porn and adult stuff here so if your looking for some adult entertainment this is your place. I could not handle the smells of vomit, urine and crap. It’s an entertaining street as everyone is drunk but there are people with dirty rags that try to spray your shoes to wash them and order you pay them money. Hit this street up during the day your less likely to be mugged or scammed out of money.

Debauchery pretty much sums it up. On our first night here we stepped out the front door of our hotel on bourbon street define two large black women brawling in the middle of the street. So awesome! This is the place were day drinking is a requirement and when the sun goes down the real show begins. Be careful though because when you stray from Bourbon Street it gets pretty dangerous at night and and some suspicious characters can be found lurking.
