  • Who doesn't want to visit a voodoo shop while in New Orleans? The owners know this, and play up on the Voodoo Queen's name. There are all kind of interesting things in the shop that will suit most tou...  read more »
  • After reading up on history and folklore for our trip to New Orleans, I was excited to see this location and possibly get a feel for the ideology, history, or something. I got nothing. I got a trinket...  read more »
  • You definitely can get almost everything you need witchcraftwise, but the staff is a bit odd and certainly not very friendly. Prices were wide ranged. 
  • Authentic NOLA shop with awesome atmosphere and unique gifts. Staff is respectful of the cultural heritage of voodoo and related topics. Jewelry, charms, juju, dolls and other groovy items. Tiny shop, totally worth a look.
  • I went here while on vacation in New Orleans,awesome store and the staff are all very nice. Raven took care of me she is a sweetheart. A lot of tourists go in there and touch things they should not then when told not to they get an attitude. HAVE SOME RESPECT PEOPLE. My hat goes off to the staff at this place, they deal with a lot of idiots.
  • have always wanted to come here and finally had the chance!!! The young gentleman (Nick, I believe) in the back was very helpful and patient, even though it was a Friday and they were packed, Miles who did my reading was super informative!!!!!! it was very interesting and comforting!!!!! Thanks sooooo much for the wonderful experience!!!! My first time in New Orleans, not much time for sightseeing, so I am happy that I chose to "brave" the Quarter alone on a Friday!!!!!
  • I had a great visit the guy in the back was very helpful and patient not just with me but the drunk idiots in and out of the store....which would drive me up a wall. had a reading at both shops Miles at the first one wash eahhhh.... seemed generic.... the next day I had one by a guy named Darren at the sister shop and it was REALLY on point with literally everything... IN DETAIL...dude was just on it knew what he was doing and dealing with. I even did my own cards a week later at home and got some of the EXACT same cards/warnings...etc...and my outcome and situation was exactly as I was told. Darren is worth the money....sure its a bit touristy but if you know what your doing / wanting its rad.
  • An official outlet of something distinctly French Quarter. The House of Voodoo sells odds and ends, stacked to the brim, in a semi-decrepit, derelict locale that caters more to tourists, but also sells some real magic to devotees. It is a fantastic experience, but a little knowledge beforehand will help you a lot. I like the look and feel, but it may off-put some. There are numerous alters throughout, so look - do not touch, and ask for it - again, do not touch. This should be treated the same way as a church or other religious institution, despite its size, location, and commercial appeal. Pictures are generally frowned upon. However, despite these warnings the staff is intensely knowledgeable (though according to some other posts, maybe a bit intimidating), and will be more than willing to walk and talk you through your specific needs, given you treat them with respect and the courtesy you expect. This was a highlight of my trip, I felt it resembled the complex intermixing of cultures, values, and history that the French Quarter contains. Definitely worth a visit, and in my mind, one of the best, most authentic places to buy, as well.
