Famous Door, dating back to 1934, is Bourbon Street's oldest live music club still in business. The famous door refers to the front door of the bar that many celebrities and musicians have autographed. Inside there is a sunken dance floor situated in front of a glass-brick stage. The atmosphere is dark, loud, neon and raw. The acoustics and lighting system enhances the performances of the live New Orleans soul and blues bands. Later, when the live music ends, the older folks leave and the bar transforms into a dance club for the younger crowd. It is open from 4p onwards Monday to Wednesday, 3p onwards on Thursday till Friday and On Saturday and Sunday it is open from 2p.
Great Bands - Fun Atmosphere!
My boyfriend and I went to New Orleans for our vacation May 21-24, 2010. On the first day we were there we were walking down the street and heard this really great band playing so we dropped in and stayed for hours! As a matter of fact, we went several times throughtout the day and night every day we were in New Orleans and we plan to go back soon. We love music from the 70's and 80's so there was no need to go elsewhere! We had the best time!
We were really impressed at all the names of the famous people that have passed through the "Famous Door". We highly recommend on your next visit to New Orleans, LA. that you too pass through the "Famous Door" and stay a while.
I have been going to Famous Door for years and love to go hear the band. They were not playing this weekend and no one could seem to tell me where they were! I was disappointed to see a DJ and not a band.
Just got back from New Orleans and tried out all the bars but the Famous Door was by far the best for entertainment! The band is great, we went and saw them everynight we were there!
The only thing I can say negative about the bar is that the drinks were a little pricey incomparison to the others but like every other bar, you can bring your own in so it wasn't that big of a deal.
we have had a great time for 3 years running.no club or band can match in the quarter.they need more tables but the band is unblevable google rock box in new orleanes and you will see why .we spend a week there .and party our asses off.we just got back 10/17/08 and they are the best band hands down there go to the door and check them out.they play wen thru sunday and they crank up at 800pm.
This was by far THE BEST bar we went to in the Quarters! Rockbox was absolutely amazing!! The girls looked good and were great about bringing drinks! We were only in town for a long weekend and were at the Famous Door every night. We are looking forward to going back so we can see Rockbox again!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS BAR AND BAND!!!!!
