Located on a corner of world famous Bourbon Street (600 block), this nightclub/bar rocks all night. Doors open from both sides of the corner allowing a free flow of people, in and out, all night long. Last night, Chicken on the Bone, was the featured band - a New Orleans favorite - and everyone in the club was up dancing... More

My wife and I, along with my best friend and his wife strolled in there last Saturday night. Not the swankiest place in town, but it doesn't need to be because the band was rockin it! No cover charge makes it even better. The band that was playing, Chicken on a Bone, were absolutely terrific. The band constantly played one... More

Was there Saturday, August 22 and the band was fantastic. I think they were called Chicken on the Bone. They sounded great and were definitely fun to watch. Highly recommend this place.

It's all about the music at this place. The house band named "One Night Stand" was fabulous and inspires dancing. If you are looking for atmosphere or pretty walls and floor then keep walking. Also the bathrooms are not really usable...ugh!

I visited on a week night during happy hours and Brother Spogga Hash was playing.... he totally rocks! He a one-man show, but sounds like three with his musical innovations and, seemingly, knows about every song that was requested while playing a constant stream of his own mixes. The bar doesn't have food, but decent drink prices and the bartenders... More

OK this is a bit of a dive, the men's bathroom was disgusting. But that's how things are on this street. Watch what you drink and check your change and all will be OK. The reason you are there is for the music. The tiny stage some how fitted 6 players one night. They were such great musicians and tight... More

OK, basically this place is a DIVE with expensive drinks but no cover charge. However, it's a fun place if you want to go hear or dance to some live (non-Jazz) music. The night we were there the band was playing old time rock and roll -- 60's mostly. As expected the dance floor was pretty crowded with most patrons... More

Was walking by and heard a really good band playing so we stopped in- 3 hours later we were still there. If you get the opportunity to hear the band "Chicken on the Bone" by all means stop in- great song selection, excellent musicians, very funny & entertaining. We had a blast.

Small place, good drinks, fantastic blues! Nothing fancy about this place. Just good service, small atmosphere, and good music

A Staple on Bourbon Street for many years. Nothing fancy about this place other than great service by one of our favorite bartenders on Bourbon Street - Miss Aileen Ai! She is no nonsense, has a great sense of humor and will take care of your drinking needs. Always a cool band playing as well
