Party Earth Bourbon St. Review

The Scene

Bourbon St. in New York’s Upper West Side is a rowdy sports bar channeling the spirit of Mardi Gras. Grab some beer & boobs in NYC with Party Earth.

New Orleans meets the Upper West Side at Bourbon St., where patrons channel a Mardi Gras mentality every night and aren’t afraid to leave behind their inhibitions…and maybe a brassiere or two.

Calling this an authentic Big Easy joint is a stretch – aside from the token masks, beads, and over-the-shoulder boulder holders littering the ceiling, the cozy venue is more frat house than French Quarter, with random road signs, team paraphernalia, and brick walls dotted with posters touting the frequent drink specials.

The dark space accommodates a raucous crowd of twenty-somethings looking to watch the game on the several flat-screens, play one too many rounds of beer pong, and pile in around the few high-tops and ledges to enjoy some large cans – and some large beers, too.

Lots of co-ed sports teams trickle in on weeknights to drink off a defeat or celebrate a victory, while Fridays and Saturdays find the midriff-bearing bartenders slinging pints to a packed house beneath the roar of token party songs that draw lots of girls onto tables to compete for attention.

Although there’s no kitchen to help coat stomachs drenched by the daily Happy Hour and countless overlapping specials, many guests bring in a burrito or slice from next door to fuel up for the festivities ahead.

It may not be the true spirit of Mardis Gras, but Bourbon St. still manages to deliver lots of beer, ballgames, and rousing calls for boobs.

Tip from Lucas:

Follow the bar on Facebook to get special offers, including drink discounts and no cover charge on weekends. And for the boys, there are lots of great pics so you can check out the staff.

  • Crowd

    College kids looking to booze up on a budget, co-ed teams bonding over beers, preppy bros, hard-partying sorority clans, beer pong masters, first-rate flip-cuppers, and anyone who isn’t afraid to go hard on a work/school night, 20s to late 20s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Loud Top 40 dominates the sound system. Several flat-screens tuned to sports. Dedicated tables for beer pong and a few video games, including a Wii console. Pool table.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    No food, but outside food is welcome. Nightly drink deals on top of Happy Hour daily 4–8pm.

  • Prices

    Cover charge $4–$5, usually only Th–Sa after 9pm. Beer $6–$8 (often 1+ deals), wine $8+/glass, cocktails $7–$12.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Casual: team shirts, gym shorts, sneakers, short shorts, sundresses, beer logo wear, Bermuda stylings, lots of skin.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Any night when a whole lot of alcohol is in order, with Friday and Saturday nights obviously promising the wildest crowds.

  • Close By

    Brother Jimmy’s (428 Amsterdam Avenue) caters to an equally young and ready-to-party crowd, and offers a solid Happy Hour and hearty comfort food to complement the heavy drinking.

Bourbon St. in NYC, no plane needed
Darina P. Apr 2, 2013
I have to say, I don't know what these other cats are posting about. This bar is one of my favorites in the city and I'm not just saying that because I know all the bartenders. Seriously, $1 Buds on Thursdays from 9-11PM. Can't beat it on a Thursday, fantastic pre-drinking spot if that's your goal. Not to mention, it's affordable even when the $1 special ends and your buzz begins. It's easy to get to. 1 train to 79th st, done! There's beer pong, flip cup, tons of plasma screen TV's and ladies you can dance on the bar if you leave your bra, if you plan on doing that wear one you don't mind being without. Granted, it is a "dive bar" atmosphere, but those are the bars where the most fun can be had. The bouncers are chill, the bartenders are real, and at the beer pong table, I've got the skill. Not to mention it's across from/near so many other cool bars, Jake's Dilemma (also has beer pong), Soldier McGee's (has skee-ball), Gin Mill, Brother Jimmy's, etc... You can find some of the coolest people there too, no one is ever disrespectful and it's always a good laugh, find me there every Thursday and/or Saturday maybe on the bar, maybe under the bar. Who knows?!
Take The Drinks, Leave The Beads

Another one of those bars that just never made it into Midtown. The crowd here is extremely young, loud and lively. Think Village Pourhouse, Brother Jimmy's, Irish Exit, etc. A whole host of characters can be found here especially as it gets later into the night. The playlist is your typical bar playlist ranging from Journey to Katy Perry; basically crowd pleasing music. Drinks are cheap, which is another reason this upper west side bar is so popular. It also helps that a ton of other bars line this particular street. I didn't really get the Mardi Gras feel, but maybe that's because I stopped by Brother Jimmy's, Jake's and the Dead Poet first. Also, if you are one of the Zog sports members or any of the New York Intramural teams, they do a great job accommodating the post game celebrations.
Happy Hour Specials!
Alicia B. Nov 3, 2012
When I was at Fordham Law up on 66th St., we *always* came here on pub nights. I can only speak from those experiences, where it was unbearably crowded, despite being a relatively big space with multiple rooms. I will say, though, that we weren't the only school drawn to the bar's beer pong tables and cheap drinks-- it caters to the studious binge-drinking crowd, so it's pretty rowdy pretty often. I do like that it's party of a chain of differently named but equally student-geared bars owned by the same people. The happy hours are consistent and reliable and I've always had a raucous good time!
