Adorable local watering hole that has been around for centuries
It's one of the oldest bars in America! Hurricanes are awesome (made with real fruit juice, not the canned garbage that will give you a hangover). Try the Voodoo Daiquiri, too! #PurpleDrank
First off all the purple drank was way overrated. Don't waste your $. Lafitte's is an amazing place to go anytime, any day. It has a good vibe, lighted only by living lights. Great hurricanes!
Fabulous neighborhood bar- perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon
Get the Purple Drank, sit in a dark corner, and enjoy the atmosphere. As most places in NOLA, a great place to people-watch
Dude, dueling pianos and purple drank! Enough said
Really fun bar. While on Bourbon Street, it is off the main the stretch. Go to where you think you have gone too far, then go two blocks further.
Such a unique and fun experience. The Bloody Mary is excellent.
Many have complaints but you have to understand this bar for what it is. It survived centuries, Katrina & tourists of Bourbon street. Experience it for what it is & the unparalleled Voudou daiquiris.
Smells like hundreds of years of history! A must see
Candlelight and pianos. The odds are in your favor 😉
Do the Voodoo!!!
Cool place! Pop in!
This bar is a true piece of history, and supposedly the oldest bar in America. The ambiance is wonderful and inside feels like a time warp. I only wish they would ditch the brochures and the ATM!
Good beer and really nice courtyard to chill in when it's hot
Sazerac. Gotta have one!
One of the oldest bars in America... Got to have a beer!!
One of the oldest bars in the world!
Oldest bar in the USA, lit entirely by candlelight. It's pretty awesome.
The crowd was good, live piano music and helpful waiters. Wouldn't really go there to relax, since it's pretty noisy. Kinda touristy. Try the purple drank!
Delicious Bloody Mary in a great atmosphere
drain the main vein in the trough
Voodoo Purple drink. I'd like to rename this beverage to the Jamarcus Russell "Purple Drank". Sorry J. It's delicious, but I did think of you. GL on the comeback. You are talented.
Grab a beverage and sit around the piano and listen to whatever awesome musician is playing that night. Grab a drink out the outside bar if the inside is slammed.
Dimly lit, dirty, so-so drinks... I don't understand the appeal.
Order a drink and sit by the piano
Oldest bar in america or some such thing
Really cool candlelight bar with a lot of history. This bar is part of the haunted tours.
Not impressed. The ambiance is ruined by the presence of a Touchtunes jukebox. The Hurricanes are very strong.
One of my favorite places to go in Nola.
Not surprising that this is the oldest bar. It's a dark hole of a place. Guys bathroom is just a trough.
A bit of a walk but totally worth it. Great atmosphere
They say it's the oldest bar in America. Somehow we found a table - what a lovely interesting place
Oldest bar in America. Go here in the day and take a seat. But also go at night to see the full effect (no electricity!) And the piano guy!
One of the oldest bars in America, and supposedly haunted. At the less rowdy end of Bourbon Street. The Hurricanes are delicious here!
Look closely for the contorted ghost faces of Pirate Lafitte's victims in the fireplace flames.
Have a drink!!
Great atmosphere. it's still on bourbon, but it's not as rowdy.
One of the oldest bars in America. Check out the piano in back & the fireplace. Only lit by candlelight.
Oldest bar in America. Love how the place keeps that esthetic.
Sit on a stool right by the piano if you can
One damn fine hurricane
Purple drank daiquiri is surprisingly good
Live piano is great. Bar has a vibe conducive for the music.
bourbon, candlelight, slushies
If you're in the Quarter you have to stop by for a drink!
Dark, historic bar in the French Quarter.
My favorite bar on Bourbon St. A nostalgic and laid back atmosphere, always a great crowd, and the voodoo slushies are amazing. This is my comfort zone bar...and it's haunted.
