I don't know much about this place, don't know if it has food, what the bartender is like, what the crowd is like... all I know is we stumbled in here late night and sat 2 feet away from the best blues band I've ever heard in my life! This place is very tiny and crowded, there are two entrances... More

This is a little bar that gets really packed. Mostly for people waiting to eat upstairs. We weren't eating just there to drink and listen to music. The barmaid will hate me putting this, but 'Best hurricanes in New Orleans'. Can't remember her name but she was great. The band was nice, but nothing special. It is a really cool... More

I can remember a lot of good times here. Back before Coco died on the floor. Back when Liz owned it. Now it's not much more during the day than a quaint little bar. And at night just a crowded waiting room for the restaurant (Adolfo's) upstairs. Sad.

Cool little dive bar where the restaurant is upstairs and the bar down, the vibe is nice and the music was great but the space is very tight. Worth a stop but tough to stay long considering the size.

I love this little place. Usually they have music during the day. Sit at the Bar, have a beer and relax. FYI, they do allow smoking. But it is pure, real New Orleans. Relax and enjoy.

Small bar on Frenchmen St. Live music. Decent drinks. Was a quick stop on our pub crawl! Definitely a place for locals, not many tourists. If you're looking for a "local taste of NOLA", this may be the place to visit!

It was live band after live band this particular weekend. This was a fourth spot during this night and we were still entertained.

This is a smaller bar that hosts music. It has a nice appeal being smaller and more intimate. You can build a nice repoor with the bartender and get better attention then at other bars

We had to squeeze past the band to get in. Because the bar is so small one gets really close to the band, the music was superb. Venue has a nice laid back chilled atmosphere, for genuine music lover, away from some of the other New Orleans madness!
