Like a hand-grenade-fueled fever dream of New Orleans, Bourbon Street Blues & Boogie Bar throbs and glows: neon signs and strings of twinkling lights flicker off wrought-iron balconies. Mardi Gras beads droop like tendrils of Spanish moss from light fixtures behind the amply stocked bar. And to top it all off, blues riffs pulsate through the bar until 3 a.m. Since opening its doors in 1995, Bourbon Street Blues & Boogie Bar has welcomed more than 100 blues musicians to its stage, including luminaries such as James Brown and B.B. King.
The homage to New Orleans extends to Bourbon Street Blues & Boogie Bar’s cuisine: chefs coat crayfish and catfish in a crispy golden crust and serve them with classic sides such as gator bites, hush puppies, and deep-fried voodoo dolls.
