Great Dive bar with excellent music

We saw the Soul Rebels - great fun band! I was worried about getting there too early (we went right after dinner). Got there about 9:45pm - the front room (main bar) had a... read more

Very slow service even though they weren't that busy. Bartenders were clueless and my drink was very weak.

The place I found for lunch was closed on Sunday, so I started walking up the road to find something else, when I located a bar called: Le Bon Temps Roule. I discovered they were renovating their kitchen but told me that I can get food from Rainbow’s corner store one block south, and bring it back if I'd like.... More

Couldn't have found a better dive bar - all with uneven floorboards, smoke clouds, a fake alligator and cheap drinks - and above all - the Soul Rebels! The sound that was generated in those 4 walls were something truly out of this world. I wish we had something similar to that in the Southern Hemisphere, but it truly is... More

We saw the Soul Rebels - great fun band! I was worried about getting there too early (we went right after dinner). Got there about 9:45pm - the front room (main bar) had a few folks there. Good place for beers/cocktails/ pool. We went to the back room where the band would play - no one in there. Around 10:30... More

Soul Rebels was hype! $10 cover...grungy place and well suited for environment and the music makes up for it all. My friend saw a cockroach in the men's washroom but again the music makes up for it ahahahah

We love the city and this lovely resturant has NEVER failed to be right on target! Fabulous food, exceptional service, just not enough positive things to be said. It's rather small, however, that is how QUALITY is maintained. Mr. Pierce makes his rounds visiting with guests as well as his wife. TRUELY one of our top 2 places in New... More

Beware the excessive door policy! Ten days in NOLA with Soul Rebels high on our carefully prepared list of great music to listen to. Arrived 10.45 and was refused entry by the octogenarian on the door because I didn't have ID. Sure even he could see that I was far closer to his age than 21 but he couldn't be... More

We went to this widely recommended establishment on a Saturday night hoping to hear some live music. First of all we were travelling by street car, and we had to walk down Napoleon street which was not well lit, and hard to walk down. When we arrived at Le Bon Temps, we were told that we needed picture ID to... More

I decided to take the Saint Charles streetcar to Napoleon Avenue and walk to Magazine street. It was a very humid sultry evening and a very pleasant walk. I mention this because it felt very safe and if you are on a budget its the cheapest way to get to the bar if you are staying close to Canal Street.... More

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighborhood Profile
Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the students living in the area ensure that Uptown and Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
