Only two blocks over from Bourbon Street is The Goldmine, known by tourists and locals alike as a great spot for late-night dance parties. Lining the entire bar are pool tables and over twenty-five old-school arcade games including Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, and Frogger, but the real attraction is the packed dance floor that heats up around 11pm on Friday and Saturday nights. Drink a Flaming Dr. Pepper shot then move to hip-hop, 80's, and other popular dance tunes. This is a popular spot for bachelorette parties and friends who are ready for a wild night. On Thursdays evenings, the Gold Mine tames things down to host 17 Poets! Literary Reading, and the venue is also available for private parties during the week.
