It's been a few years since my last visit to Tipatinas and let me say it Never disappoints. The live music was great listening to Bras -a- holics and another band ( can't remember the name) on this night. Tipatinas is the go to place when looking for good live music in NOLA hands down.

Took our 18 year old son's to experience Tipitina's while in NOLA and had a great evening with the Foundations of Funk. We arrived early but by show time the lower level was shoulder to shoulder and the line outside continued to grow.

If you want to get hear excellent local music, this is the place. These mostly local professionals you won't see in other places. Not a big place so there can be a line to get in and it can be very crowded. Has a mixed crowd who appreciate music. A great experience to be entertained. A great place to check... More

Went to a late night show during Jazz Fest. We arrived at the venue at 2:20AM to find a huge line for will call. The scene outside was fun and easy while we waited on the line. There are also food trucks outside should you need to grab a bite to eat. We learned at the entry that they proof... More

We went to hear St. Paul and the Broken Bones. My wife didn't bring her drivers license because I had the tickets and my drivers license. They would not allow my wife inside. We had to take a cab all the way back to our hotel in the French Quarter for her to get her ID. My wife is in... More

New Orleans cooking has its "holy trinity" and so does New Orleans nightlife. Tipitina's is one of those places that you have to see and experience when in New Orleans. On top of a great line up of musicians performing on a regular basis with at least one show you should see in the course of a week you should... More

New Orleans is a city defined by its music. There is an expectation that seeing live music in New Orleans takes place in a small, dark, smokey bar with old posters on the wall and an electric atmosphere. That's Tips. Tipitina's hosts almost every form of music: local indie bands, classic jazz, funk, rock, burlesque shows, music labs, everything. Locals... More

My wife and I visited Tipitina's to see the OK Go show in October. WOW! Great bar service! The place was small compared to most of the venues I've been to but it was cozy and had a New Orleans old-fashioned feel. It is right off Magazine St so there is a lot to do before and after the show.
