New Orleans is ideal for a guys’ weekend—from delicious dining to live music, there’s something that everyone in your group will enjoy. Gamble at Harrah’s Casino, take to the track at NOLA Motorsports Park and try your hand at disc golf in City Park. Browse the itinerary below for our top picks for a memorable weekend.
For your first day in the Crescent City, grab lunch and a few brews at NOLA Brewing. This brewery restaurant serves up their own beer alongside pizza and seafood. After lunch, spend your afternoon exploring this lively city with all your friends.
At night let the drinks, dice and good times roll at Harrah’s New Orleans Hotel and Casino. Located in the heart of downtown New Orleans, Harrah’s is a great place to start the night. Begin with dinner at The Steakhouse. Here, you and your crew can feast on steaks galore.
Feeling lucky? Following dinner, head over to the casino! With over 100 table games, 20 poker tables and more than 1,800 slot machines, you and your friends can try your luck all night long. Play a game of Texas Hold’em, Omaha or 7 Card Stud with your entourage and up the ante by reserving a private gaming table just for you all to enjoy!
The fun doesn’t have to stop there. Aside from gaming and dining, Harrah’s offers an assortment of entertainment options. You and your crew can party it up at Masquerade, one of the hottest night spots in the city, featuring some of the best DJs, an ice bar and a VIP ultra-lounge.
Engage in some race car driving and friendly competition at Nola Motorsports. This 700-acre park is perfect for the car-lovers in your group. As home to the largest karting track in the country, you and your crew can enjoy 40 acres of pure go-kart racing fun, filled with hair raising twists and turns.
For something a little more extreme, strap on a helmet, hop in the driver’s seat and go head-to-head with your squad in some of the world’s best supercars. Choose from the Ferrari 458 Italia, Lamborghini LP560-4, Porsche 911 GT3 or the Nissan GT-R for some high-speed fun during your weekend bash.
The night is still young! Get cleaned up, hop in a cab and head over to the Warehouse District. Here, you’ll find Barcadia — an eclectic bar that combines the nostalgia of childhood with flavors suited for the grown-up palette. Grab a drink or two from the bar’s extensive menu and channel your inner child with a game of Pac-Man with friends.
Afterwards, you’ll definitely want to head to the French Quarter for live music. Whether it’s Frenchmen or Bourbon you find yourself on, live music is abundant on a Saturday night.
Wake up early and meet your captain for a charter fishing trip with Brock’s Charter Fishing. Relax on the water and reel in ‘reds. Or, sleep in before heading back home and start your morning at New Orleans City Park with a cup of Café au lait and beignets from Café du Monde. After breakfast, stick around City Park for a relaxing game of golf. A traditional game is fine, but in New Orleans we have a way of making just about everything uniquely ours. While in the Big Easy for your last day, let tradition take the back seat as you tee it high and let it fly with a round or two of City Park Disc Golf. Few places are more tranquil than City Park and with a game of Disc Golf you can explore it in its entirety!
