We kind of just walked down Frenchmen Street, seeing what music drew us in. Maison was it! Big Easy Brawlers were playing, and they were awesome! No cover for the bar, and lots of places to sit. The band put on a great show, even getting the crowd involved. Their energy was high the whole time, and overall they were... More

One of my favorite spots to hear traditional jazz music (before 10 PM) After 10, music turns louder and more funk or other New Orleans styles. No cover for dinner time jazz music. Decent food served as well. After 10PM there is a cover charge for other music and the tables come out, becoming a pure bar. Saturday from 7-10... More

Pros - great street in FQ - great bar with good drinks, fun people and staff - saw the bad Magnitude who who were awesome - feel of the bar is very "organic" as the bands and guests sort of dictate what will happen next - felt like you got to hang out with a group of friends who were... More

Great atmosphere and awesome service. The atmosphere is the best out of many New Orleans bars I have been to. It is a great place to listen to music and also sit down and enjoy Cajun food.

I went there to eat and drink on a Sunday evening (around 9 pm) and the kitchen closed all of the sudden... Rude service and unreasonable explanation...

Great place for music and food and friends. Staff is attentive and southern sweet! Chelsea is money for their staff ... Friendly and informative. She pointed us to the crawfish bites and didn't miss! What a experience in this music rich culture. An amazing getaway from the busyness of the city to just hang and hear good music. I'm not... More

We went here two nights in a row and had a great time both nights. It is a little schizo, prior to 9 pm some nights, they have a sit down not so great restaurant. After 9 pm or so, the tables are removed and the party starts. If you are seated at a table, you will need to get... More

I bought two VIP tickets on ticketweb.com for a Slick Rick concert at this premise and it was a disappointment. They didn’t tell us that the VIP means upstairs in order to see better and when we understood by ourselves and showed our tickets to stairs entrance they said it’s not possible. This is a small bar with a very... More

We looked for dinner with music and found Maison. We called but they don't accept reservations, but we went anyway and only had a short wait until we got a seat. The band playing was great, and the place was packed providing a great atmosphere. The food was nice. We shared a starter (southern sampler of local favourites) and for... More
