want a good time – went to New Orleans recently and had a great no drama time dancing drinking and enjoying the atmosphere. Great club on a Friday evening arrived early 7or 8pm no cover was even more crowded later wall to wall by 10pm.
Wow...is it 1930? – IS it 1930? Because I thought that a black person could go out to a bar and hang out with friends and NOT get drama from the front door staff. First, even though I had just watched 7 white guys in baggy clothes and backwards caps walk in the door, somehow my "Lucky Charms" hat and flare leg blue jeans and black boots weren't part of the dress code. After that stupidity ended and I was let in, we walked up to the bartender. Now I tried to get her attention for 10 minutes and while she waited on two different groups of white females who had come to the bar after me, she finally deigned me worthy of her attention. I got $35 worth of drinks, gave her a hundred dollar bill and she gave me back $30. I looked at her as if she had lost her mind and said "I handed you a hundred" she said, and I qoute, "You gave me forty" so after they went and got a manager "realized" that I had indeed given her a $100 bill, I got back the appropriate change and didn't tip. We stayed for maybe another 20 minutes, during which time I was just stunned that people were acting like this in this day and age. We left and went to another club (Bourbon Pub) and had an AMAZING time!!!
Later I heard the story of the black college student was choked to death by memebers of thier door staff and had I known, I would have never darkened that doorstep. My previous job was as a promoter for clubs in Detroit, Los Angeles, Miami and New York. I can safely say this has never happened to me anywhere. Clubs are hard to get into, maybe the drinks are watered down but for the most part I enjoy clubbing. Not Razzoo. Ever again.
best place to be on the weekend – i went there the weekend before the hurricane i had so much fun the guys there was freakin hott the drinks there were pretty good the employees was sweet nice the men at the door was preety nice too but i got drunk n had lots n lots of fun come check it out this wekend guys ill be there maybe youll get drunk n have fun like me
DON'T GO!!!!! – You'll never know if you go what will happen to you. Especially if one of the not so friendly guys at the door, decides he doesn't like you. You can read more for yourself on nola dot com.
Count Your Change – Fun place with good drink prices but count your change. On my 12/31/07 the bartender failed to return more than $10 change. We have visited this establishment several times over the past 8 years and this was our first complaint.
Awesome Place!!! – First time in NOLA for me and my best friend and I had a blast here, 3 for 1 drinks, friendly staff, and a band that made sure that everyone had a good time. Great place to party with a back patio with great atmosphere. Had alot of fun getting shots from Natalya (awesomely gorgeous and great personality) , she was definately the nicest lady on Bourbon Street. If you wanna have a great time this is one of the best places to go.Look forward to going back.
fun place to go dancing and people watch – everytime i am in new orleans for jazzfest, i always stop by razzoo at least 5 times that weekend. it is just such a blast to dance to the music. it does get crazy crowded late at night but the music is bumpin and the deejays are pretty fun. early in the day, although it is not as crowded, the music is still pretty good. of course, one of the things i enjoy is when people go on stage to do crazy stuff. it never ceases to amuse me because someone is almost always too drunk and doing something funny. if you want to get away from the crowded dancefloor, the back area has tables to just chill (although it does get crowded there too). the drinks are cheap, although a bit watered down. but hey, you get what you pay for. that being said, i definitely recommend razzoo!!!
3for1 – Yea, I used to live in New Orleans and worked on Conti @ Oceana Bar & Grill (great food)! When I'd get out of work Id head over toRazzoo, it has a fun staff that serve those 3-4-1's @ happy hour. I've met other Nawlins lovers on other travels and I ask them, "What's your favorite bar?" THOSE THAT PARTY ALWAYS SAY, "RAZZOO!" w/o a pause. The outside patio is my favorite as well as the freakshow that might go on on the dancefloor! There's similiar bars to Razzoo that will try to get you lured in, but Razzoo is where it's at FOLKS!
High-energy hangout brings in a party scene for hurricanes and live music. – The Scene
Razzoo is ground zero for flocks of 20- and 30-somethings looking for a rousing good time in the French Quarter. Crowds pour in from the street day and night--this bar is one of the first to fill and last to empty as Bourbon Street ebbs and flows. There's nothing mellow about this establishment, which attracts beaded tourists and revved-up locals with high energy and a touch of rowdiness. The wild herd onto the dance floor to move to karaoke until one of two house cover bands performs until close.
Three bars offer typical well and call drinks, as well as specialty concoctions like hurricanes, at tourist prices. Groups gather around the flaming fountain or the beer tubs in the back patio to gain a little more personal space. Human traffic jams, which are not always unappealing, in the club's front section are a common occurrence.
I love it =o) – I live is Baton Rouge and go here every Mardi Gras. I have been to other bars on Bourbon and ALWAYS come back... And the bleau fire in back need I say more !!!!
