17. Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop

Address: 941 Bourbon St.
Website: lafittesblacksmithshop.com

Built in the early 1700s, America's oldest bar is believed by many to be haunted (many French Quarter ghost tours start here) by the pirates who once ran the city from inside its stone walls. If you're biking around on a hot day, pop in and get a purple drank for the ride. I do it all the time.
