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.

Tipitina's is the crib of music in New Orleans, as such is a place you must go if you love music. Every thursday there are several local groups playing with no cover what so ever. 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

De beste lokale bands; de beste landelijke bands. De beste muziek tent van New Orleans. Van funk tot country; cajun en zydeco.

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

We saw the Soul Rebels support Irma Thomas at the Sage in Gateshead about 4 years ago and was blown away by the sound, so when I found out they were appearing at Tips on our first night in NOLA, we just could give up the chance to see them in their own backyard. 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
