2017 Event Information

In 2017, our event structure will be slightly different than past years.

We will have a small number of our "Signature Events" that have become the most popular, and then provide our guests with information about tours that can be self-booked.

This will allow us to provide a greater variety of tour and event options for guests.

“Deals for Heels” at Vive! Bar

August 30 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm | Cash Bar with Happy Hour Discounts

A Hit Year After Year!

Deals For Heels is a weekly Happy Hour promotion at Vive Bar to bring women into the bar in high heels for drink discounts.

Decadent Ducks have taken over and packed the bar with men in heels, and Vive Bar looks forward to us coming every year.

Vive Bar offers discounts depending on the height of your heels, but the men in heels always get 50% off drink prices.

The chic modern Vive! bar features a selection of signature cocktails. 

A bold and modern decor with LED lighting sets the tone for a sophisticated and stylish evening. This chic lounge opens into our French Quarter courtyard where you will find a heated saltwater pool, outdoor bar and plush lounge furniture.

Happy Hour prices, big discounts for those in heels !

Here’s a special offer that Candy Samples will love


The Vive! Bar is offering specialty cocktail discounts from 10% to 50% off, based on the height of your high heels. So strap on some CFMPs and strut on down!  The sight of Troy and John in heels should be enough incentive for you to join the fun!

No advance ticket purchase is necessary, just bring your heels and have a drink with Troy and company.
