One Eyed Jacks

The ornate walls of One Eyed Jacks’ 300-odd-capacity showroom are edged with scarlet sparkle-vinyl banquettes and hung with mid-20th-century pinup nudes painted on black velvet — a louche, swank atmosphere appropriate to its history as an old French Quarter movie house and reputed speakeasy, the latter of which apparently left the club with a pair of ghosts. A slightly raked floor means there’s not a bad sightline in the room, which is the premier Downtown New Orleans destination for touring indie acts, hip local bands, and DJ nights, like the long-running and beloved Thursday night “Fast Times” ’80s dance party. College kids mix with old punks and visitors, too, who are lucky enough to wander into the coolest spot in the touristy Quarter.

      Birthday Night Fun with Friends

      Great time here! We ordered tickets in advance for ourselves and a group of friends. $20 a piece for a really fun show, happened to be Southern Decadence. Was great fun, my husband even enjoyed it despite the drag, very well done and entertaining! The atmosphere was awesome too, great venue. If we return to NOLA we would do this again for sure! Definitely recommend!

      Fantastic Music Venue

      Just went to a show here while on vacation and got to see the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. The atmosphere and decor along with the music took my friend and I back in time. It felt like a 1940's nightclub! I've been going to shows here for over a decade and they are always entertaining and good. I keep going back and that should tell you something!

      Late evening show

      After carousing through the local bar scene, we were heading back to our hotel on Royale when we spotted this place. Decided to see what it was all about. We ended up catching a few of the burlesque shows. All were very entertaining and the staff were great. It got crowded toward the end of the evening but still a good time. Not a fan of the bar set-up in the show area, but I guess it serves the purpose.
