    The piano bar is amazing. They know every song. Mix with Hurricane for classic Nola

    Hurricanes in the courtyard at Pat O'Brien's is basically a rite of passage for anyone who visits New Orleans. Go on a breezy night if you can.

    Sit on the patio and drink a hurricane. And for those who don't drink, sit on the patio and drink an Eye of the Hurricane. They're a delicious non-alcoholic alternative!

  • Jamie L.

    Hurricanes for here or to go. If you're staying, check out the piano bar!

    Guessing the dualing pianos bar has a lifetime guarantee. If it catches fire, you're dead!

    Kent Ahrens · March 29
  • Jake S.

    Obviously, you're here so get a Hurricane. But branch out and try the other specialty drinks, all while enjoying some tunes at the piano bar or the outdoor patio.

    Jake Smith · March 25
  • Eitan L.

    See some dueling pianos, requests some songs, and have a hurricane or two.

    Hurricane to go on a warm day. Refreshing drink in a party atmosphere! It was St. Patrick's Day!

    Can get really packed with fratastics sometimes, but if you can go at a slower time, the patio's great.

    Classic touristy bar in New Orleans - go grab a hurricane and enjoy the outdoor patio!

    Amazing venue! Is a must see in Nola. You should try the Hurricane cocktail here!

    Great relaxing haven off of bourbon street. Strong fans keep you cool.

  • Roger W.

    Touristy but decent prices and good atmosphere.

  • Eric O.

    Upon entering, the line to your right is for the piano bar. Feel free to step left for a regular bar or go past straight for open-air seating and food.

    Classic Bourbon street bar, get a Hurricane and explore the Piano bar and courtyard.

    Alyssa · November 22, 2015
  • Tanya R.

    Famous spot. Cool backyard area. Can't have more than one hurricane a night, but it's worth trying.

    Tanya Rojas · November 21, 2015
  • Anamaria H.

    Make sure you return your Hurricane glass at the bar! They charge for it on your bill but they'll give you $3 in cash when you return it.

    Anamaria Hernandez · November 19, 2015
  • Dana M.

    So good! The food was amazing, the ambiance was beautiful and my hurricane was delicious! Our waitress was super nice as was the bartender.

  • Marcelius F.

    Great drinks, get the hurricane like everybody else. Love the outdoor area! Cozy in the evening when they light the fire in the fountain. Good for dates

    Marcelius F. · November 6, 2015
  • Anna W.

    If you like sweet drinks that get you tipsy fast, get a Hurricane. Remember to bring the glass back and they'll refund you $3.

    duh... you can't leave without a HURRICANE!!

    Home of the Hurricane. No visit to New Orleans is complete without a visit to Pat O'Brian's

    Kenneth Kaadtmann · October 4, 2015
  • Kari O.

    Unfortunately, the red beans and rice tastes no better than unseasoned refried beans. The hurricanes are of course strong😊, and the catfish and wings are flavorful.

    Kari Osborne · September 16, 2015
  • Matthew C.

    Hurricane drink is the go to. Just off bourbon street it is an original. Must go to when in New Orleans

    Matthew Coll · September 16, 2015
  • Pandora K.

    Have tried Hurricanes all over the city & this one is still our favorite. The fountain & industrial fans are a great setting to enjoy a sultry evening. To-go cups always available.

    Obviously you get a Hurricane here. Take it to go for your walk home if you can't finish.

    Lily · August 30, 2015
  • Priya T.

    Very touristy!! They charge $3 per glass which you get cash back from at the bar or you get to keep them. Different prices for the three sections. Courtyard is pretty and is the mid priced one.

    Catfish is awesome

    Great food and drinks

  • Adriana C.

    The Hurricane is overrated and they'll charge you for the glass if you don't mention that you don't want it... It's too touristy! On the +side, bars create a very good ambiance and the patio is top!

    Adriana Craveiro · August 2, 2015
  • Erin C.

    Hurricanes while waiting in line for preservation hall! Try to get a hat too

    Erin Carrigan · July 29, 2015
  • Denette

    A historic must visit. Get a hurricane and save the glass for a souvenir. They have a bar, a separate piano bar and a cool outdoor patio!

    Denette · July 28, 2015
  • Nirnaya L.

    1 hurricane enough to sweep you away 🙀

    Nirnaya Lohani · July 21, 2015
  • JamieLynne W.

    Enjoy a drink in the prettiest courtyard in New Orleans. If you don't want to lug the souvenir glass around town, return it to the bar for a refund.

    Loud and long wait but love it. Grab a hurricane!
