For almost 200 years the Old Absinthe House bar has been a staple of life in the Vieux Carré. Located on the corner of Rue Bourbon and Rue Bienville, the cooper-topped wooden bar captivates patrons as they sip their favorite beverages.
For almost 200 years this bar has been a staple of life in the French Quarter. Visitors can sip their favorite beverages as the sights & sounds of the French Quarter trickle into this comfy tavern.
Of all the bars lining gaudy Bourbon Street, this may be the only one a local would be caught dead in. Plus, drinks are never wasted, because the law allows you to take them with you wherever you go.
this is my 'just chill' spot in the city...
spend a few hours here people watching, leave a business card
Brooke makes an awesome Pimm's Cup ... AND a MONSTAH Sazerac!
A very nice bar!
Take it from a local, this place is a rip off. Incredibly overpriced, terrible drinks, zero emphasis on absinthe. Its about as historical as winston churchills hemorrhoids
We love the Old Absinthe House’s Napoleon-topped water spigot.
Absinthe, where else but right here. Price's range from $16-$22 for an epic drink, if your into Absinthe. Or you can sample several adult beverages, plus it's the oldest bar on Bourbon street, sweet..
Come by the AT&T Fan Zone at Bracket Town at Ernest N. Morial Convention Center on Mon, April 2, for a chance to get an autograph from basketball legends Jay Williams, David Robinson, & John Havlicek!
20$ for a shot of Absinthe? c'mon...
Best Sazerac in the French Quarter
Afternoons here are great! Lots of people watching, open doors and windows to the corner and Dawn makes the best mint juleps on Bourbon Street.
Amazing dive bar on Bourbon St. Great knowledgable staff on Absinthe. Get yourself the topself $22 shot. Sip and slip away while listening to Frankie.
Wayyyy too expensive. Don't even think about giving them your card. Classic tourist trap. Shame, since the history is interesting.
Order a Bloody Mary. Just trust me.
Best Bloody Mary I've ever had.
Pay with cash. They put a $50 hold when using a card.
Helpful hint: the Absinthe Frappe is just a big-ass glass of Absinthe.
nice atmosphere, but a bit pricey
leave ur business card on the wall like everyone else has who's been here
Really like the sazeracs here.
A relaxed old bar that once served the likes of Mark Twain and Walt Whitman. Stop by at least once. Absinthe seems somewhat overpriced, but I enjoyed local beer on tap.
If you are not an absinthe connaisseur, try the New Orleans one. Mixed up with mint and Pastis, very good!
Absinthe was good. Bar was meh.
$9 fireballs are impressive....
Had the top shelf absinthe, they made me welcome with the ritual of the sugar cube, water and all that. Tastes like strong licorice, a biker gang Mae in and ordered 6 shots... Awesome!
Nice pub, cigar friendly.
One of the only bars in the US who will do a real absinthe shot. Order one.
Outstanding Jukebox...yes jukebox
One of the more laidback spots on Bourbon street. Yes, there IS wormwood in the absinthe. No, you won't see a green fairy.
Worst service, rude bartenders. No wonder this place is empty on fri of memorial day.
Good place to start the night easy going
Worst service ever at the bar during the day!
Came in on an early Monday evening. Pretty chill dive. The Band into BTO into The Doors didn't hurt either.
Come in bc its cool, skip the absinthe bc its nasty
Most people are there to drink beer.
Got a traditional pour of nouvelle orleans absinthe. it's like a dark voodoo version of a football bar. As folks that aren't into much of bourbon st crowds, we liked this place.
Serving patrons for 200 years including many historical figures and celebrities, this is a gem on Bourbon Street. The Sazerac is incredible!
Spending our last day at a shitty dive bar, beers are $6, there are some really drunk guys, everything is covered in filth, and it kinda smells like puke. New Orleans finest.
Absinthe of course
shot roulette. try not to drink the gin
The cocktails are wonderful here. This is a nice change of pace on Bourbon.
Sit upstairs on the balcony. View is nice!
Anything with the Word Absinthe has to be Good!!! :)
Fuck. This place rules...
Bar top is uncomfortably high, but the tenders are very open and warm provided you tip like a grownup and not a college student.
Cozy by the fire place
Pedir algo rápido, cervezas o shots. Siempre esta muy lleno y es demorado el@servicio
