While Las Vegas may offer tastes of Rome, Paris and Egypt wrapped in one city, but the Big Easy is still the queen of merrymaking in the United States. Immerse yourself in the quintessential laissez-faire attitude in the French Quarter, where beer and beads and friendly smiles are in ample supply year-round.
Although Mardi Gras is the best time to visit New Orleans, rowdy Bourbon Street is always full of life. Grab a hurricane at the famous Pat O’Briens or pick up a Huge Ass Beer to Go from a street vendor for $2 as you stroll the cobblestone streets ducking into blues dive bars and voodoo shops
If you would rather watch the revelry from a private balcony, rent a room at the Royal Sonesta, home of the iconic Oyster Bar, Desire Bistro and PJ’s Coffee. The historic Chateau Bourbon offers enticing views of Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club and Mango Mango, the hottest daiquiri shop in town.
A diverse melting pot of cultures, New Orleans is heavily influenced by its Cajun roots. Fill up on a spicy bowl of gumbo or a crawfish po’boy before heading out to the rambunctious Cats Meow karaoke bar or to the Spotted Cat, where at least two bands are featured each night.
