While New Orleans is an absolute playground for visitors with great attractions, amazing food, and tons of live music options, one of the primary reasons many people make their way to the Big Easy is to party. Bourbon Street is notorious for good times, and when you’re ready to let loose with a couple of hurricanes and maybe even a hand grenade, there is simply no better experience than New Orleans. However, even the biggest pair of party pants still requires a decent night’s sleep to keep going, and when you are hitting one of the following legendary NOLA bars, booking a hotel in Westwego is an excellent decision. Not only will you be able to get the sound rest you need on a pillowtop bed, when you stay at Best Western Bayou Inn, there is also a complimentary hot breakfast that can help you fuel up for another day of fun in New Orleans. Before you head downtown, check out this list of popular drinking spots on Bourbon Street to see where you might want to order your next adult beverage.

Great Bourbon Street Bars

Bourbon “O”: Located in the middle of all the action, Bourbon “O” is one of the classier bars, featuring candle lit ambiance instead of the more standard neon lightning. However, in addition to a long list of classic Big Easy cocktails, this delightful drinking spot has one the best treats on Bourbon Street: an Abita root beer float with rum and cream cheese ice cream.

Tropical Isle: If you are looking for the strongest drinks and the typical Bourbon Street experience, then you simply cannot pass up a chance to visit the home of the Hand Grenade at Tropical Isle. In addition to serving what is quite possibly the strongest mix drink ever invented, this popular Bourbon Street bar also has a balcony that is very much worth your time. Remember, though, that you will definitely not be able to drive back to your Westwego hotel after drinking here, so be sure to have a designated driver or arrange for a taxi cab!

Maison Bourbon: Although New Orleans has an incredibly rich jazz culture and plenty of live music venues to go around, finding real jazz musicians on Bourbon Street is not as common as you might think. After a night of hitting the dance floor and throwing back jello shots, Maison Bourbon offers a real chance to see live jazz music.

Cat’s Meow: On the other hand, if you prefer being the entertainment on Bourbon Street, then you can’t beat the Cat’s Meow. Join in on the karaoke fun, probably after a drink or three, and embrace the chance to be the life of the party at this famous watering hole. After a night crooning at the Cat’s Meow, you’ll definitely need the goodnight’s sleep back at your Westwego hotel.
