Concierge.com's insider take:
The term eclectic doesn't even begin to define this vibrant hipster club in the French Quarter. Depending on the night, you can catch new-school burlesque revivals, local heavy-metal bands, '80s-themed dance parties, or any manner of alternative theater performances. Even when the main concert room—a cross between a speakeasy and an opera house, with chandeliers hanging from the 25-foot ceiling and small candlelit booths lining the walls—sits dark, the front bar is a quirkily appealing place for cocktails. Its aesthetic is an over-the-top mix of goth and historic saloon, with frosted-glass windows, fringed satin curtains, and a series of black velvet paintings.
Open only on show nights; call ahead for schedule.
