I stumbled onto this jewel attempting to hide from the midnight heat. I stayed for the live music. Unfortunately, I do not recall the artist who preformed that night but she was AMAZING! Many of her songs were original, she sung beautifully, and had great stage presence. I definitely suggest this bar to anyone strolling along Frenchman St. The young... More

Went to this raging venue to see Kermit Ruffins and the Barbecue Swingers. What a blast! Great open venue with space to dance. (NB no food on sale , but you can bring in take out)

Long lines outside and at the bar. Staff was extremely rude and unapologetic about it. It was sweltering inside due to a lack of windows and the even though the venue was at capacity they were still letting people in. This is my second time going to this establishment once during Mardi Gras the experience wasn't much better and the... More

This is my favorite place on Frenchmen. That may be because it was the first club I set foot in the first time I went to Frenchmen Street. It was just amazing. I went and saw Kermit Ruffins play here this time. It was a great show and, as always, the Blue Nile was the place to be. I stopped... More

While checking out Frenchman Street with friends, we heard irresistible trombone sounds, and stopped in to listen. Really glad we did. Cold A/C, even colder beer, amazing music. The vibe here was addictive.. Had a great night.

Nice place to relax and enjoy some music, friendly staff. It has a really nice ambience inside. Not many seats so expect to stand!

My husband and I decided to check out the Blue Nile on Frenchman Street after a recommendation from his coworker. The entire neighborhood is filled with bars which feature bands so I'm sure there's something for everyone in the area. The band featured on this particular Sunday was playing Naughty By Nature's OPP when we walked in the door, so... More

We were drawn into this club by the sound of a fantastic female singer whose voice was incredible, we later found out that her name is " Mykia Jovan" and she performs at the blue Nile every Sunday evening starting at 7:30 ...If I lived in New Orleans I would be there every Sunday Evening...she was that good. Plus the... More
