Cleaner, more fun, safer … these are all ways to describe Frenchmen Street. Especially when compared against Bourbon Street. Had a great evening here.

A great neighborhood. Lots of bars and restaurants, bands playing and good food. Just outside the French Quarter so a short walk from where you were heading anyway.

We got tired of the French Quarter after about a day, but Frenchmen St was the place to be every night. The selection of jazz clubs will suit every palate. Entertainment can be enjoyed virtually all day and night. Most clubs also serve food most of which we really enjoyed.

My wife and I are in our late 50s and do extended road trips and always try to find good local restaurants focussing on food, not pretension, and experiences but not tourist traps. We then go 'high end' for a few days (boutique hotels and fancier restaurants). This falls into the former category of travel. Frenchman's street positions itself as... More

When we go to New Orleans, we always go to Frenchmen Street in the evenings to hear the best of New Orleans live music scene. You don't even have to know who is playing, you just walk up and down the street until you hear the music that moves you. There must be 20 clubs in a 2 -3 block... More

We were getting tired of the neverending party that is Bourbon Street, and Frenchmen street is where some of the locals told us to go. This is where you will find the best drink specials in NOLA, and without the crowd of drunken college kids.

Bourbon Street is crazy on the weekend and more like a College Party Street. Find your way to Frenchmen Street where the 'Locals Go' for awesomeeeee music and an overall amazing time metting new friends.

Actually just off the edge of the Quarter. Lots of music and quaint bars and restaurants. Three Muses is not to be missed but the place is small and they will NOT let you linger past a couple drinks and several tapas. Reservations are best at several places. Be a bit cautious after dark returning to the Quarter.
