The French Quarter, despite its name, has quite a bit of Irish blood running through it. Both those mother tongues have assimilated into the modern New Orleans accent, but one contribution of the Irish to French Quarter culture is indelible and indispensable to this day: the pub. As is true wherever they are found, Irish pubs serve as local watering holes and gathering spots for friends in the French Quarter.

I know it's a jazz town but if I'm looking for a night of authentic Irish tunes where should I got. I'll be there a Thursday through Sunday in March. Vera--Can't wait to try your restaurant, Red Gravy. Last one of those I had was in Chicago and it was delicious! I could be wrong, but I think the Kerry is about the only place post-K that still has Irish music on a fairly regular basis. The Kerry is one of my hangouts when I go to New Orleans. They have music most nights but it's usually not Irish. The Irish music there is kind of hit or miss. This topic has been closed to new posts due to inactivity.
