We went to the maple leaf really just to see Rebirth as we had been told it was a must do in New Orleans if you enjoy good music and they were telling the truth. The band is fantastic, the drinks are reasonably priced and...More

The Maple Leaf might look like a dive, but the crowd is very friendly and the place is jumping when the Rebirth Brass Band is in the house.

What a cool place! Obviously the band playing will impact one's opinion, but we went twice and both nights were amazing. Good (and not overpriced) drinks, friendly staff, and awesome (mostly local) patrons. I couldn't (again, assuming that the band is to your liking) recommend...More

We visited when there was no band on but an open mic poetry session out the back (Courtyard was lovely!). The place was really gritty but that’s what made it feel so old and edgy. I have read reviews however about people eating there but...More

Stopped in after dinner and a piano player was in the back bar. We enjoyed that as well as a house punch. Awesome stuff. The main act started after we left so I can't comment on that.

Stopped in here before dinner for a quick drink, which was probably not a good time to visit. The place is probably at it's best when a band is on but not before. The "I'm too cool for you" bartender will barely speak to you...More

We had a blast at the Maple Leaf. We went for the music and got there a little early to make sure we could get in and get a spot at the back bar. The front area near the stage gets very crowded. The bartenders...More

Super cool spot, piano going in the back, great beers in the cooler and on tap, ask the amazing bartenders for suggestions on all the local offerings, there's a band jamming at night. Highly recommend it, great spot

I loved the big brass band that I was able to experience at this bar. It also has plenty of room for standing and a neat outdoor area as well.

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

Sorry, but I didn't attend the boil. The Maple Leaf can draw quite a crowd, so I do recommend going early.

There’s live music every night but generally doesn’t start until 10 or 11. There are some benches along the sides. Their website has info on the music. Love this place.

Stick with your plan. Did you see who is at the Maple Leaf on Wed. night? The New Orleans Suspects. Are you in town for the French Quarter Fest? That'll be a great time.
