Bourbon Street
Some find this narrow, neon-lit French Quarter street appealing, others appalling. But it’s worth a stroll either way. It’s as if all the sins of mankind and then some were rounded up and corralled here—tawdry strip shows, cheap and potent drinks, the coveting of neighbor’s wives, petty larceny, big-ass beers, bad cover bands, etc., etc.. (Bad cover bands were not technically mentioned in the Old Testament, but to many they’re the street’s most shameful sin.) The heart of the party zone stretches eight blocks from Iberville St. to St. Philip St., with the thickest concentration of bars on the Iberville end. New Orleans allows alcoholic drinks on the street, as long as they’re in plastic cups, allowing you to roam with your beer or Hurricane from place to place.
