French Quarter Dining & Nightlife


With so many dining and entertainment options surrounding the Bourbon Orleans Hotel, guests can experience the best New Orleans has to offer starting right here at the Bourbon Orleans Hotel. Our signature Creole restaurant, Roux on Orleans, is open daily for breakfast and dinner and uses the freshest seasonal ingredients native to Louisiana. An alternate recommended dining option is our sister restaurant Marti's in the French Quater. Marti's offers a French inspired menu and is open for dinner Tuesday - Sunday and lunch on Fridays.  Our signature bar, Bourbon "O" faces Bourbon Street and features craft cocktails and live musical entertainment Wednesday - Saturday.

In New Orleans, there is nightlife for all tastes: those seeking a romantic evening, the partygoers, the gamblers, and the LGBT crowd.

Music

Music mavens will enjoy listening to live music and jazz from any of the many live music venues on Frenchmen Street. Additional music clubs just a short walk from the Bourbon Orleans include Fritzel's Jazz Pub on Bourbon Street, Tipitina’s in the French Quarter or the Davenport Lounge to name a few. 

Mississippi River Enchantment

For a more relaxing and romantic evening on the town, enjoy a jazz cruise aboard the Steamboat Natchez or Creole Queen paddlewheelers as they cruise down the Mississippi River. Then enjoy a moonlight stroll on the Moon Walk along the river. After dinner, enjoy chicory-brewed café au lait and beignets at Café du Monde just steps away from the river, open 24 hours.

Bourbon Street

Half a block from the Bourbon Orleans Hotel, you’ll experience the sights and sounds of Bourbon Street with a pulsating crowd. Begin your Bourbon Street experience with a craft cocktail at our Bourbon "O" bar.  Ask for a “go-cup” at any of the bars, so you can enjoy the party outside as you experience the French Quarter at night.

Casino

Add some high-stakes action to spice up the night with a trip to Harrah’s Casino. This 24-hour casino offers ten varieties of table games, more than 20 poker tables, and over 2,100 slot machines!

LGBT

The French Quarter and adjacent Marigny neighborhood are home to several internationally known bars and clubs, including the oldest gay bar in the country, Café Lafitte in Exile. A visit to the largest gay bar in New Orleans, the Bourbon Pub and Parade, is not to be missed. With two floors and a balcony overlooking Bourbon Street, a fun time is sure to be had. Just next door to the Bourbon Orleans Hotel is Napoleon’s Itch Wine & Martini Loft, offering over 100 exotic specialty cocktails and an exclusive wine list.
