Walking into One Eyed Jacks in the French Quarter is like stumbling into a shadow-filled red wax museum. Then you walk through the double doors and you're in a full-blown (if slightly seedy) theater, with multiple bars and a big dance floor. That kooky decor, combined with the edgy blend of acts that come through the doors makes this place a hidden gem. In any given week you can catch burlesque, comedy, death metal and folk. Drink prices are reasonable compared to many other French Quarter establishments, and the rules are loose. Oh wait, there aren't any rules. Even better.
