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

I just about didn't notice this place - it is a tiny venue, small than my bedroom I think. I was about to jump in a cab to go back to my hotel when I heard some great blues being played and found it here. Small, intimate, great music, real close to the band. A great place to pop in... More

A Coors was $4.50 and this was during happy hour pricing. We did not find any charm here in spite of the music. There are many better bars

Good music- reasonable drinks- tiny but fun- filled with locals. Blues trio ecletic! Had a good dinner upstairs at Adolpho's- manicotti great but had lots of seafood specialties

MUST stop in...TINY spot, your butt skims the band as you take 3 steps to the bar w/ 4 stools. Sitting on one of the stools, you can kick the 2 small tables and 4 chairs across from you. The bands change nightly, mostly duos or trios, that's all the stage can accomodate. If it's packed when you walk by,... More
