Great music brought me in. Seating at the bar for 7. 4 hitops. All the rest is standing room. Then it was $12 for a week drink. The music was good. But not that good.

Small venue, so either go before start of band or don't plan your evening around it. No fancy cocktails, no food, no coddling... just the best music on Frenchman's 75% of the time.

Bartender was very rude to our group. Very small space- there’s definitely better spots on Frenchman

Pretty cool little bar. Not overly expensive and has enough room to enjoy a small band. Had a southern style rock band playing when we were there. Would definitely recommend if you fancy one of the smaller places on Frenchmen Street.

We loved this place. Loved the band that was playing on Saturday, loved the girl bartender.. We ordered couple of local beers and enyojed our time there. If you are walking down the Frenchmen, do not hesitate to enter this place.
