This was a must do I read about in a travel book and we were not disappointed. We arrived right at the 5pm opening on Sunday night and were entertained by the fantastic music and dancing. Smitty was a fantastic local ambassador who made everyone feel so welcome and he was full of dance steps to share.The rice and beans... More

It's a great foundation doing good things. Support the arts! The bartenders were great. There wasn't a bad spot in the house. It's standing room only.

We loved Tipitina's. This is a great venue for brass bands... we saw the Treme Brass Band and The Original Pinettes and both were so much fun. We will return next time we are in New Orleans, for sure!

I have been going to this place since I was in high school. It is located on a not well traveled corner of the Uptown area, but it is easy to spot because of all of the music emanating from its doors! They get the best groups, both established and up and coming in the area. You don't go for... More

I've been going to Tipitina's longer than I care to admit. There are more tourists today, but it is still a fun place to listen to, dance to and enjoy good music. I love the Garden District and highly recommend this spot after a wonderful dinner.

Tips is still a must see joint, depending on the performers that day! An icon of NOLA music history. Choose wisely.

This is the destination for music lovers...all, the great have and still paly this iconic bar. the staff is fun and the drinks are reasonable. I always prefer a local spot to a corporate pretend bar so come check this place out. It is nice that it is no cigarettes as well
