Just blocks from the Cross County Parkway in Mount Vernon, The Bayou is a New Orleans-themed bar where funky decorations, lip smacking food, and wicked good music combine to give visitors one of the most complete bar experiences in the county.
Grab a Swamp and Turf (barbecue gator n' ribs), a fried oyster po' boy, or some voodoo wings and get ready to hear the blues. The Bayou books the premier live blues and Zydeco artists touring the northeast, and past performers have included Nikki Armstrong & Whole Lotta Blues, Gary King and the Knights of Rhythm, the Blues Patrol (a Blues Brothers tribute band), and the Turnstyle Jumpers. Got the blues? Get up and jam at one of the open mic sessions (Mondays at 9:30), and be your own B.B. King.
