So the thursday I decided to go were playin 3 HARD TRASH METAL GROUPS!!! and I'm not so into it. Anyway, they were very good... More

I went here twice last weekend and loved every second of it. There are so many great bands who have played here over the years. This is definitely part of NOLA music folk lore. The sounds was great for both gigs and the whole venue was bouncing. The bar staff were friendly and efficient I just didn't want the nights... More

Still a favorite with both locals and tourists. Great venue, efficient bar tenders and well, just NOLA funk. No place to sit unless it's warm and you want to sit outside for a bit, but usually you don't care, especially if you like to dance. No need to get there early since you'll have to stand anyway. It exists for... More

Make sure you bring your ID... More

October 19, 2014 - After checking into the Quality Inn and Suites Maison St. Charles, we drove directly to Tipitina's, also in the Garden District of New Orleans. I had researched where to find authentic cajun music and dancing on a Sunday at New Orleans. On other weekend nights, you could go to Rock and Bowl but not on Sunday... More

This is a locals favorite and hosts some big name bands as well. Look online to see who is playing while you are visiting and you just may catch a big name band in a n intimate environment.
