Big Easy Social & Pleasure Club review image

Big Easy Social & Pleasure Club

This historic dive is located within earshot of Rice and hosts live blues bands six nights a week, with Sundays dedicated solely to bayou-style zydeco. The drinks are cheap and yeah, it’s loud, but you don’t go to The Big Easy to talk, you go to people watch and dance.
