New Orleans, LA, 70117, United States
TEL: (504) 947-5562

Few people leave this dive bar, tucked away in the residential Bywater section of New Orleans, without good stories to share with friends. Whether it’s the colorful clientele, smoky jazz atmosphere, complimentary beans and rice, or the longest bar you’ve probably ever seen, Vaughan’s remains the hidden gem that locals rave about. Just make sure to bring your dancing shoes and be ready to shimmy through the wall-to-wall crowd. Cash is the other necessityboth for the bar and the cab.

Insider Tip:

By unanimous vote, Thursday night is the time to go, owing to the tremendous live jazz and grill courtesy of Kermit Ruffins & the Barbecue Swingers.
