BOURBON STREET AFTER DARK

Let’s light the way with neon signs!

Bourbon Street really looks better at night.

Enough neon for you? I captured Bourbon Street, leaving out the parts which may be offensive to many. It is not for the faint of heart.  Most of the bars have bands that are really, really good, and cover all types of music from country to 80’s to disco to blues and jazz all day long.  It’s fun to pop into one when you hear a song you love, the melody spilling out from inside, dance for one song, then pop back out! That’s easy to do there.

Boogie on, Margie

  1. Great pictures Margie! Wow, I know NO is rowdy but “not for the faint of heart” and “hedonistic” and you had to censor. CH and I may be too old for that now. I like my quiet. :) I guess I have become boring! I still love the idea of zydeco and muffalettas though :D

    • Thanks Pix. You know, NOLA has so much more to offer than Bourbon Street, and Bourbon Street is an very unique place. However, Bourbon Street, and I am being totally honest, is not for everyone, especially at night. It is always packed to the gills, so believe me, lots of people love it!!! I just wouldn’t want to make it something it is not, have someone go, and be taken aback by some of the establishments that make up this very famous street. Oh how I love Zyedco, muffalettas and beignets, oh my!!

  2. Awesome photos. You are truly a wonderful photographer. Certainly is a festive and busy place. You’re going to have to come home to rest up from your vacation. ;)

  3. Being here in Miami I am addicted to and appreciation the neons which you captured well. But still I always felt the alleged glitz of Bourbon Street was pretty small townish, a mimiature Disneyland for people that like to drink and party.

    • It is filled with neon, but not the least bit glitzy. It’s not even small townish Carl, but quite seedy and is definitely a hedonistic place for adults to party if it is your cup of tea. Fortunately, there is a lot more to New Orleans than Bourbon Street, otherwise, we would never have gone back.

  4. the only thing i thought was odd was pizza by the slice at the cajun cabin? :) sort of appreciate the censorship – don’t know if i have enough energy for that this aft. ha!
