Molly’s at the Market

Irish Pub in French Quarter

A cop, a reporter and a tourist walk into a bar. That's not a joke, just a good description of the eclectic clientele you get at this excellent neighborhood bar. It's also the home of a fat cat (Mr Wu), some kicking Irish coffee and an urn containing the ashes of its founder.

Not surprisingly, St Patrick's Day can be quite a bit of fun here, with green costumes and Irish-themed reveling. Minimum $10 for credit-card transactions.
