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

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.

Another great small bar on Frenchmans...and when I say small, I mean it. However, the bands are great, the service is above average. Probably only have 8 seats at the bar but even with a packed venue, the bartenders do a great job serving. this...More

To get such good live music and great drinks with great service -- what a deal! Drinks aren't cheap but they are very high quality, all top shelf alcohol and made with care by a very good bartender, Marshall. This was the second time I...More
