Once upon a time, a French Quarter bar called Flanagan's was a hub for local weirdos and clued-up visitors. From the dust of that bar, carried on the wind a few blocks to Rampart Street, comes VooDoo Lounge which, together with the Black Penny, forms a good reason to hit the northern edge of the Quarter. The simple, 24-hour bar room up front does straightforward business with veteran bartenders who can tell you almost anything about the city you're in. The back room could be hosting anything from comedy shows to dance parties, depending on the night. Either way, it's a welcome addition to the block.
