We loved walking around Frenchmen Street! It's much more authentic than Bourbon Street and seems to attract a more authentic crowd who are interested in music as well as having a good time. We stopped in quite a few of the numerous bars to listen to blues and jazz music from terrific musicians. For the price of a drink and... More

The first night we went to Frenchmen street, there was great music playing. A local band did a second line through the neighborhood with probably 50 people plus talking part. Really had a great time. Not sure how often this happens. Much better than Bourbon street.

Visit the outdoor art center. You can purchase art from the artist and a great price. They also have jewelry for sale.

My husband and I are over age 65, but we still love the lively, electric atmosphere of Frenchman Street! We feel very safe walking around in the area and even walk from and back to the French Quarter late at night. We enjoy the jazz music!

A fun place to go to get out of the quarters. Great music! Frenchmans Street is a definite night time spot. It's walking distance from the quarter. Very cool atmosphere. We love that it has culture and a little grit mixed in. Very NOLA

We rented a house a block from Frenchman St. We foolishly thought we would spend more time on Bourbon St. and the French Quarter, but we kept going back to Frenchmen. Tons of restaurants, shops, music venues, art markets, etc. A defnitely stop!

The Spotted Cat, among other clubs offer excellent music performers. Good food is also available nearby. This is an area that locals frequent.

We spent a couple of nights on Frenchmen. It just as much fun as Bourbon street but less crazy. The Blue Nile was great on Thursday night for Reggae night.

Awesome place to catch New Orleans music. A minority of the bars have cover bands and the like, but venues like Maison, Blue Nile and d.b.a. are the real deal for the music that makes New Orleans unique. And you can just stroll ... buy a drink in a 'go cup' and if you decide you don't like the bar... More
