“Nothing to write home about.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

I heard this is the area where the locals hang out. It was quieter and a lot of shops and things were closed or vacant.

“Great jazz. A parking nightmare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Fun location to wander and listen to music. Most places don't have a cover but require a drink minimum per set. Most places require that you are 21 yo to enter. Parking is an absolute nightmare. Take a taxi!

“Great area for blues and jazz music”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

The area is a little scary to walk in a night. Don't walk around here alone. We did find some great eating places
