“Best Music Venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

First of all make sure you go to the Tipitina's that is Uptown - not the one in the French Quarter. The music was so great we were surprised, even for New Orleans where good music abounds. There are no chairs but the bar doesn't have long lines and the performers are first rate. I suggest buying tickets online in advance.

Saw Maceo Parker. A fine performance, with great sound, and visual. We were in the balcony against the rail. perfect spot as there are no seats all standing room.

“Very fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

It was on a friend's bucket list to visit here, and I'm glad we came along for the experience. We aren't dancers, but watching others dance to cajun music was fun. Be careful of the drinks; they are loaded!!

“Another Great Venue in NOLA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Seen the Radiator's Reunion at Tipitina's. What a great venue with a TON of history. The place was packed. The views are only obstructed in a few areas. Wait staff was attentive and the drinks were good. I would definitely go again and again.

“Great taste of a "real" new orleans venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Tipitina's is a New Orleans modern classic - currently celebrating its 35th anniversary. Its in the heart of uptown so if there is a band that interests you, combine it with an evening away from the Quarter as part of your vacation - go to Columns Hotel for a mint julep or cassamento's for some oysters or Jacques Imo's for dinner and then head to Tipitina's for some dancing. Expect concerts to start 30 min+ late but who cares the opening bands are great too. Crowd in with locals and see jass, soul, funk, zydeco or a combination of two or more as is often the case. New Orleans isn't about lounge music its often about HS marching bands blending with other contemporary music forms to make some very new. Especially now that Rampart street is down, this is the place to get a taste.
Only negative is it can get filled with too many kids from local colleges.
