About Us

With authentic New Orleans cuisine, an emphasis on comfort, and the only rooftop bar on Bourbon Street, Mambo’s is a festive oasis offering locals and visitors alike a re-energizing escape from the strip clubs, cover bands and daiquiri shops outside. Located in the heart of the French Quarter, the welcoming gravity of the towering three-story building invites you to explore what lies beyond its French doors.

The crown jewel of Mambo’s is the recently-added third floor, which is home to the first and only rooftop bar on Bourbon Street. When you reach this summit, you first enter the inside bar area. Through the use of reclaimed building materials and painstaking design, this new addition has the same rustic, historical ambiance as the floors below. With enough local artwork to pack a gallery, the vibrant colors reverberate throughout the room like the jazz that inspired it. From there, several glass doors open to reveal a unique outdoor oasis in the middle of Bourbon Street.

Your meal is prepared by chefs who have spent their lives perfecting the art of authentic Cajun and Creole cooking. Food quality is a top priority, not an afterthought, and each item on our menu is guaranteed to please. We are most famous for our signature crab cakes loaded with plump crab, lightly fried and topped with a spicy crawfish and mushroom cream sauce.

Inside and out, Mambo’s is a celebration of the diversity and colorful energy of New Orleans. The French Quarter is stuffed full of places to eat, but finding an authentic local dining experience is much more difficult.  Mambo’s hits every benchmark. From big dishes and drinks to small details, nothing has been overlooked.
