What is a Pub Crawl?

Traditionally, pub crawls give participants the opportunity to go to many different bars that are in close proximity to each other. It is called a "crawl" because by the end of the night some party-goers may end up crawling rather than walking due to all the fun they have had!

New Orleans pub crawls offer:

  • An easy way to experience the culture of New Orleans
  • Transportation between pubs if needed (varies per tour)
  • A guide to narrate and help move the group from place to place
  • Discounts on cover for the bars
  • Drink specials for you and your group

Today, pub crawls are a lot more broad in what they can offer and are not just limited to nighttime drinking like in the past. There are many that occur during the day, which allows you to fit one in no matter what your travel schedule looks like. Also, pub crawls are also not just limited to drinking anymore. Some instead highlight the local cuisine of the city, by letting you taste dishes at each place you stop.

Regardless of which tour you choose, you really can't go wrong with including a New Orleans pub crawl during your next vacation. For extra exciting options, be sure to read all about historic and haunted themed pub crawls in the Big Easy below!
