Fab band!

Walked past this place and there was a great band that dragged us in. Good drinks, great band. Small little bar that is worth the visit

Great little music bar on Frenchmen Street. Don't expect to get a seat on a weekend but you'd be there for the decent music and drinking anyways. One concern was the other local musicians (I assume) who were supporting their mate playing were being a bit obnoxious to the other people in the bar who were tourists, like me, about... More

This place is really small. Plan on standing room only for the night. If you don't like crowds and hot places stay away. Is a lot of fun but with average music and low quality acoustics.

I was at the Apple Barrel on a Thursday night and although we were weary from day three in the "Big Easy" the band was superb! Tiny space - giant heart! Great service at the bar - put your dancin' shoes on!

Frenchmen Street is eclectic in more ways than the music and food. It is also eclectic in the service dynamic that a tourist might experience. The Frenchmen Street regulars, a mixed bag of bohemian artists, street people, and musicians, compose about half of the visitors on any given night. The other half are tourists. The former group is largely possessed... More

We popped in here for a cold beer and we were glad we did. The place is tiny but we managed to get a seat at the bar; the bar man was friendly and explained the local beers to us (which were so much cheaper than Bourbon). The band was a bunch of young lads who were awesome called Urban... More

This was a completely unique club, very small, quirky but had a duo that absolutely blew us away with the music and vocals they did. (December 2013) I would go again for sure.

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

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighborhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.
