If you are down on Bourbon Street and your feet are tired from walking and you have had your fill of raucous mayhem, you need only walk a little further to find this famous bar. Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop is (as its name implies) located in a former blacksmith's shop and safe house for smugglers during the 1800s. It claims to be the only building to have survived the fire that burned down the French Quarter in the late 1800s. In the back of the bar, an old man plays a grand piano and croons through drunken sing-a-longs like Piano Man and You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling. The bar has cheap drinks compared to many of its Bourbon Street counterparts, and there is never a cover. It is open daily from 11a onwards.
