Lafitte's Blacksmith claims to be one of the oldest bars in the United States, and even if that's not accurate, this pub is pretty old anyway - it was built in 1722. It might not seem like much, but the building survived two fires, and it was the headquarters of Jean Lafitte, privateer, spy & local hero. The pub is the favourite haunt of some pretty popular local artists, and it is frequented both by tourists and New Orleans residents.

Address:
941 Bourbon St, New Orleans, LA 70116, USA

Opening Hours:
Monday to Thursday 11:00-02:00, Friday to Sunday 10:00-03:30

New Orleans Travel guide

So it is better not to stay too long in New Orleans if you are a “good guy”. The city definitely has its charm even if decadence embraces most of the city, a city with a long history, a city built below sea level as if to match the fact that it is also below the level of normality, but that’s just my opinion. The city is defined by its people that have French and Spanish root [...]
