If you're visiting town, it's worth walking down Bourbon Street once to see what all the fuss is about. Unless you're a fan of neon sugar in test tubes, however, you'll want a bar that locals go to. Just off the main drag is this beloved Irish bar that the bachelorette parties don't usually stumble into. It's a small, service-industry staple, where you'll likely drink Guinness and whiskey next to the chef from the restaurant where you had dinner or your server from yesterday's brunch. Unpretentious, friendly and open 24 hours a day—it's a true friend to have in the French Quarter.
