The World Famous Cats Meow first opened its doors in December of 1989. At the time, karaoke in America was in it's infancy and we were one of the first bars to try out the new entertainment concept. In less than a year, Cats Meow became the largest "on premise" account for both Miller and Budweiser products in the New Orleans area. A year later, Pioneer, the audio company that brought Karaoke to the U.S., named Cats Meow "the BEST Karaoke bar in the world".
We hold true to that title today and continue to improve on what was started then with better service, top-notch entertainers, a clean atmosphere and a whole lot of fun!Cats Meow is located in the heart of the historic New Orleans French Quarter. The building is a superb example of 1820's architecture and offers amenities such as two exterior balconies overlooking Bourbon Street, and a cozy interior courtyard. We are located at 701 Bourbon Street on the corner of St. Peter Street, the same street you'll find Pat O'Briens, and the historic Jazz Preservation Hall.
