Thinking about coming through New Orleans to do some comedy? Hell yeah! It's always a good time here. In fact, there's so much to do here that we put together a list of the places us locals like to go and places we like to tell visitors to go check out. Also, please, try to find someone to stay with here. Most of us have space to put up a couple comics. Please do not use AirBNB in New Orleans. It's a long story, but basically, it's killing the ability for anyone to afford housing and is ruining our neighborhoods. We'll find you a couch or a bed or an air mattress that won't fuck up our economy.
Art market featuring local artists of all kinds. Opens at 7pm, so stop by before or after Crescent Fresh open mic on Thursdays or Comedy Fuck Yeah on Fridays, both at the Dragon's Den a couple blocks away.
Gene's makes a decent poboy. It's walking distance from HiHo, Siberia, and Allways so if you're in a bind for some food late at night, here's your spot. I think they're still cash only. And don't forget to grab a frozen daiquiri!
This bar is neighborhood as shit and just so happens to have killer Vietnamese food in the back kitchen, serving kinda late, too I think. And, bonus, Tuesday nights around 10pm is Cassidy Henehan's Comedy Catastrophe.
They serve tapas-style food pretty late. The bar's alright. They've got a balcony that makes for a decent hang. Mostly we come here after we're already fucked up and wanna sit down and eat a little something and continue to get fucked up.
Staple of the queer community in New Orleans, just outside of the French Quarter. 16 beers on tap. Also features an upstairs bar with a strict no cellphone policy, and an in-house leather, kink, and fetish shop.
