After you get out of a show at Tipitina’s, walk up to Le Bon Temps Roule to play some pool, catch another show, or just drink until morning. This dive doesn’t close, ever, and is always filled with locals at any hour of the day, so regardless of when you need a shot or a beer, or if you just want to ask someone in the know what “lagniappe” means, come here.
