Enjoy some New Orleans' traditions

The dueling piano bar at Pat O'Brien's located in the French Quarter is a New Orleans' tradition not to be missed. Order the Hurricane, the drink that made this bar famous, as a refreshing way to wind down after a hot day outside. Request some songs to sing along with and laissez les bon temps roulez — let the good times roll!
