New Orleans top late-night bars 

If you can't sleep or can't go home, these bars are likely still open

The Abbey
1123 Decatur St., 504-523-7177
The vibe: Plastic skeletons and stained glass are more Lower Decatur Street goth than Bauhaus set dressing.
What you'll drink: There are daylong, $5 beer-and-a-shot specials and bacon-filled bloody marys.

Aunt Tiki's
1207 Decatur St., 504-680-8454
The vibe: For tiki drinks, see elsewhere in this guide. For a late-night (or early morning) service industry go-to bar with Halloween-inspired knick-knacks (gargoyles, skulls, tombstones) and strong drinks, this is the spot.
What you'll drink: Beer, shots, mixed drinks.

Brothers III Lounge

4520 Magazine St., 504-897-9912
The vibe: It's either your last stop or your only stop at this bright yellow-brick hut with dueling country jukeboxes, a solitary pool table and permanently ensconced patrons who shrug at the encroaching fancy taco joints and juice bars next door.
What you'll drink: Beer.

1001 Esplanade Ave., 504-949-0038;
The vibe: The big back room hosts live jazz, singer-songwriters and piano players five nights a week, but the front bar is a 24-hour neighborhood hangout with a loyal local following and a round-the-clock food menu.
What you'll drink: Mixed drinks and beer on tap.

Kajun's Pub
2256 St. Claude Ave., 504-947-3735;
The vibe: Don't drop the microphone when it's your turn for karaoke. Otherwise, you're good to sing that Disney song, obscure country hit or Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" — which the emcee already has heard 100 times that night.
What you'll drink: Shots, PBR on tap, mixed drinks.

Snake & Jake's Christmas Club Lounge

7612 Oak St., 504-861-2802;
The vibe: It wasn't supposed to have anything to do with Christmas. In a former life it was The Christmas Club. The name stuck, then the plastic Santa Claus and holiday accessories showed up. And everyone is tying one on like it's the holidays.
What you'll drink: Shots and Schlitz.
