“Maison Club did a poor job of customer relations”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

We came in because of the great music group playing "Royal Roses", and were told we could order our dinner off of the menu. However, 5 minutes later we were told "we just switched, you have to order off of the short menu", so it was only appetizers. Then, our table in the front of the stage had a sign placed on it advising us that we would have to relocate in 15 minutes to open up the dance floor. And, by then, all of the close tables were filled up.

Save your money, and go to one of the much better customer oriented locations such as the Spotted Cat or Snug Harbor; where they actually care about the customer and not the $'s

“Best area for great live music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Is worth the walk. Trust me. If you are looking for a good time at night and great bands that play jazz, blues, bumping brass bands and comtemporary music, skip bourbon and go to Frenchman Street. Leave Bourbon Street to the college kids.

“Music venues”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Why spend all your time in the French Quarter? NOLA has so many hidden gems including the music and other venues on Frenchman Street! If only I could decide which tattoo I want - Electric Lady Land is the place! Street performers - best in the city. Great music - more authentic and fun than Bourbon venues. Great food - oh yeah. Excellent vibe. No neon.

“Good music and a fun atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Go bar to bar and hear some bands you never heard before. The quality of the music is outstanding. Great fun crowd and cheap drinks. We even saw an outdoor art show and later watched a late night parade.

“Fun place for jazz”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Good music in funky fun surroundings, great street vibe. You can go from club to club or just find a great artist and spend a fabulous set or two. Eat dinner someplace before you hit this street since drinks and music are the real attraction.
