Non-stop music

You can wander in and out of the clubs on Frenchman, listening to music at every stop. The Spotted Cat is very cool, and catch Jon Cleary at dba. Something for everyone!

My husband and I loved the music on Frenchmen St. The jazz was phenomenal and the clubs were more to our liking than Bourbon St.

This is the place you must visit while in NOLA. It's inly about 2 or 3 blocks long with many bars that all have live music inside. We went to most of them and we were not disappointed. While there we had drinks at the The 3 Muses and then went to dinner at Adolfo's and both were great!! Go... More

New Orleans is my favorite city of all times. I try to do something different each time I go and have wanted to do Frenchmen Street. Made it there and it was fun to just hear and see all the stuff going on. Were able to make it to the artists market, which is open from 7 PM to 1... More

Visited several venues.. all had good music and artists from fun, blues, jazz and modern. The more chill hours starts at 8 and after 12 there is more hype music.

Great place to hear jazz, blues, and local New Orleans muscians. I like to go in the afternoon around 3 or 4 p.m. and drift from venue to venue. Particularly like The Maison, The Spotted Cat and d.b.a

Some good bars on the street, a lot of souvenirs to buy from artisans, and a lot more nicer than Burbon street.

This street has live jazz, blues and eclectic entertainment for the enjoyment of anyone who tires of the craziness of Bourbon Street, but still wants to enjoy NOLA music. Many of the clubs have no cover, so you can cruise around to find your preferred bar.

Interesting area with different music. Funky vibe with art studios and a different crowd. Fun area to check out while in French Quarter.
