    This place is awesome, go after 9 when the upstairs bars open. Bartenders were great and gave great tips on other fun dives and places to eat! It's all about the dark atmosphere here.

    The Dungeon is a legendary New Orleans bar / haunted house and is described as a haven for rockers and metalheads. Our alleyway to our Crossroads restaurant was inspired by this iconic bars entrance.

    Awesome music on the jukebox... cute and sweetheart bartenders, unless you're unruly... they'll chuck something from behind the bar at you. And oh... The piss pot is hidden behind the book shelf.

    Had come a few years ago and it was great then but I was completely disappointed this time around. Bookshelf and cherry bombs all gone!

    Only place you'll find Metal in the Quarter. Get some cherry bombs ( cherries dipped in Everclear ) and the Midnight Potion. Though it might be the last thing you remember.

    The best place to hide from the Bourbon St nonsense. Metal, beer, babes.

    The one toilet is behind the bookcase. No towels, no lock on the door. Inexpensive beer - $1.50 bottles. Pool table, goth atmosphere.

    The Slip Inn of New Orleans, with a death metal vibe. For my Dallas folk.

    The back and upstairs don't open until 10-11, but be prepared to rock all night long when those rooms open up!

    ..and only owner approved music on his iPod is used upstairs. Such a shame. It's not longer 'the dungeon', it's torture for the former frequenters. :(

    Cages are gone. Bookcase hidden bathrooms are gone. The environment is completely different. Long time customers and we will never return again. Barely anything 'hard' on the juke box. And...

    The bartenders have no problem with pitching a beer on you if you act like a bitch. Play nice or die of thirst.
