Unlocking Bourbon Street

Delight in a stress-free, fabulous night out!

Start your New Orleans Secrets tour experience in a tucked-away restaurant (which was once a brothel) and dine on several delicious dishes while learning how New Orleans nightlife and jazz in the city evolved. From there, stroll down famous Bourbon Street and see how it became the #1 nighttime destination in the USA.

After a second food stop, settle in with a drink of your choice (included) in your reserved seat at a popular jazz venue for live New Orleans jazz!

On this walking tour, you visit:

  • Two restaurants – Enough food for a full meal
  • Pat O’Brien’s – Inventor of the infamous “hurricane” cocktail and the dueling pianos
  • Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop – One of the oldest bars in America
  • Cat’s Meow – World-famous karaoke bar
  • New Orleans Jazz Venue – See live Dixieland Jazz music with reserved seating
  • Various other spots of interest along the way

You also learn about Louis Armstrong, the Storyville Red Light District, what to do on Bourbon Street, and other great places for live jazz in New Orleans (like Frenchmen Street!).

Can vegetarians, pescatarians, or vegans attend?
While we can offer substitutions for most dishes to pescatarians, we cannot accommodate vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, kosher, or low salt diets.

On this tour, you will walk approximately half a mile.

What if someone in my party is allergic to shellfish?
We can offer substitutions for most dishes to those with shellfish allergies. Please be sure to mention this when booking your tickets.

What is the minimum age?
Because the tour will visit bars, everyone in the party must be 21 or older (the legal drinking age in Louisiana).

Can I bring my baby in a stroller?
Since they will not be allowed into the bars, we, unfortunately, cannot allow children of any age.

Is this just a pub crawl?
This is definitely NOT a pub crawl! Instead, think of this as an orientation to the French Quarter nightlife scene. Those showing up already inebriated will be asked to leave the tour with no refund given.
