Frenchmen is my go-to for live music outside of tourist-kitchy Bourbon St. Top-notch musicians, great vibe & the Friday night markets are a great wander.

Best street in New Orleans! Amazing live music and good quality restaurants and bars. The atmosphere on Frenchmen is excellent and the live band who regularly play on the corner are good fun and real experience. Would happily go back in an instant.

Some very cool restaurants, vendors, bars, and stores. The area seems very safe and rather clean. A few of the businesses denounce Bourbon Street, which I understand, but I don't really like. Why denounce a part of history just a few blocks away? Without the popularity of Bourbon Street, tourism would be less, thus reducing the likelihood of these businesses... More

Had great food there and listened to some fantastic music. It felt pretty safe and the atmosphere in the streets was jovial.

This spot has nice places to go, like the market and some other nice restaurants. It also has places like bourbon street to go party, but the art galleries and the coffee shops give the place another feeling, more friendly.

Great local jazz. You never know what or who you will hear. We visited a few and wandered from place to place until we heard something great then we went in to listen some more.

Of course everyone wants to party on Bourbon when you're in NOLA... but you have to check out Frenchman Street at least once. I never would have known about Frenchman Street but while on our tour of the city we got to check out and stroll down Frenchman (even better it was during the red dress run so you got... More
