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.

There are better music venues on Frenchman, and the bartender is rude as hell! Had no personality, and thought it was funny that I had to pay a $4 ATM fee at their place...I wish I could UN-tip him.

Had a much better time this time the manageress was lovely & all staff were very helpful! I didn’t see the barman who was rude last time so hopefully he’s gone. Glad to see they listen to feedback :)

Great people. Cash bar ( no credit cards) . Authentic Nola jazz. Drinks are strong! Very tiny place but lots of fun. The bathroom was minute and not handicap accessible. Loved our visit

Rudest bartender I have ever seen. Kicked us out after we ordered a drink. I am not even sure why. He did not offer an explanation but told me we needed to leave. I am 40 yrs old and have never before been kicked out...More

Stopped in for some drinks and some jazz. I don’t know jazz all that, but I know quality musicians and cheap beer. It was a good time.

DO NOT GO IN THIS BAR IF YOU ARE BRITISH/A WOMAN. Monday 6th November me and a friend had been recommended to try out this bar. It is my first time in the USA & we’ve been really enjoying the famous American style customer service....More
