Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop
941 Bourbon Street
Underground EmbellishmentsSince circa 1772, centuries-old rumors and tall tales have been housed in this L-shaped soft-brick and cypress timber constructed bar. Still standing proud with a little bit of French, Spanish, Creole, pirate, and colonial-American heritage, Lafitte's is an alternative place in NOLA to pull a few sazeracs. Listen to pianists plink away on the black and whites and singers croon into the dark, smoky, and spooky atmosphere on this side of Bourbon Street.
