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!

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!

A must ! Please visit the music is the best I found in New Orleans. Very relaxed and friendly . Can't wait to go back again to see old friends ....... Music goes on until the small hours with a wide diversity. Air conditioned for those hot summer months

Brilliant music venue. We popped in for one and stayed for three due to the band but also like the bar itself. Barman a bit uncertain on what beer they had in stock but pulled out a couple of bottles of Dos Equis from the store room for me. Better half's G+T strong and good. I'm struggling to remember the...

We were told that Frenchman's St is the place for music when in NOL. Unfortunately we didn't have a free evening, so we went along to check it out late in the afternoon. No where seemed to be open and we were about to head back to the hotel when we saw some people ahead of us duck into a... More
