If you're in the mood for a frozen daiquiris, head to Fat Tuesday and prepare for a crushing ice cream headache after sucking down a number of delicious boozy slushies.
A gem among dive bars, The Saint is a local favorite for NOLA's indie-punk crowd, featuring delightfully decrepit walls, video games, cheap drinks, and theme nights like Tiki Tuesdays.
Ms. Mae's, on the corner of Magazine and Napoleon, is a New Orleans institution -- and not because it's open 24 hours or is one of the cheapest bars in town. Well, that might have something to do with it. Inside, you’ll find pool, air hockey, and foosball. You’ll find very cheap drinks served in plastic cups. You’ll find big groups and singles, older folks drinking during the day and college students at night. And you might even find that rare, bold, endangered animal attempting the Ms. Mae’s 24 challenge: finishing one drink per hour every hour for a full day.
Located in the French Quarter, this booze joint is regularly teeming with inebriated party goers belting out their favorite tunes at the karaoke mic.
Essentially located on Tulane University's campus, The Boot is typically filled with undergrads enjoying cheap drinks, aka it's usually a pretty solid party no matter when you come (which is pretty much any time during the night since they're open til 6a nearly every night).
The John is a toilet-themed bar, a concept that isn't as gross as it sounds. The theme amounts to nothing more than gold-plated toilet seats as chairs, which look strangely normal alongside the small, round tables that line the wall. If you're looking for frills, there's a jukebox, a ping pong table, and plenty of potty humor to go around.
The Country Club is a restaurant, bar, and pool all-in-one. Order a beer with your lunch, then walk upstairs and drink another one poolside. Be sure to visit the on-site massage therapists and spa services while you're there. Oh, and did we mention that the pool is clothing optional?
This French Quarter dive bar is popular for a number of reasons, three of which are their cheap drinks, their awesome jukebox, and the fact that you'll rarely find tourists crowding up the place.
