We were lucky enough to see Big Al Carson here, if he is playing please don't miss him. I had done some research prior to our visit and knew he was playing so made sure we got there.

This little hideaway has some serious talent! We especially enjoyed Mark & The Pentones; can't stop listening to their disc!! Jamie tended bar and makes the best Margarita's in the city. He was so friendly and helpful. He is a great ambassador New Orleans!!

We always come here to see Big Al Carson. They don't charge to come in but they expect tips. But he is worth it. We have purchased his CD's, he is very entertaining.

What a great little place on Bourbon! And, though everybody raves about Big Al, there is a much better show going on there most days... Mark & The Pentones! They seriously rock the blues and more. These guys play all around the quarter but seem most at home at Funky Pirate. Be sure to stop in whenever they are playing you won't be disappointed...

The drinks in this place are pretty kickin' as well. Great atmosphere, great drinks, great music... what more could you ask for?
