Pat O'Brien's, New Orleans: 41 reviews and 48 photos
As it drizzled, we were anxious to find a dry place in which to take a break, so we gave a friendly nod to the smartly dressed doorman and entered a former carriageway which led to Pat 'OBrien's courtyard.
A little oasis in the city appeared with large trees edging a dining patio and a tropical looking garden on the fringes (pic #2). Fortunately, the courtyard's umbrella tables protected diners from the rain and no one seemed inclined to move to another part of the restaurant. A unique feature of this area was a flaming fountain--and you may have thought the only ones were in Dubai!
Pat O'Brien's has been in business since the early 1930's when it was a speakeasy. After prohibition it developed into a drinking establishment, developing an interesting adult concoction known as The Hurricane. However, we weren't there to imbibe, but to look around. After a short while, the weather repeated the pattern that it followed each day we were there--the rain ended after a brief shower, allowing us be on our way.
Hours are Mon.-Thurs. from 12n to 2am; Fri.-Sun. 10am-2am. Private events are welcome.
