If it is too crowded for you here, they have shows upstairs as well. We were able to get there early enough before the show. The balcony has a good spot to take pictures, and it’s a good atmosphere for jazz fans.

I had the same experience as another elderly couple on Trip Advisor. The bouncer at the door did not respond to my friendly "Hello" but glared at me and said, "ID." I realized that my wife and I had left our drivers' licenses at the...More

We were eager to hear Kermit Ruffins and thought this would be a greet place to do it. If we hadn't pre-booked and already paid ($17 cover each, for four of us) we probably would have given it a pass. But "ya pays your money...More

Was here recently with some work colleagues; on a Tuesday night! The small place is just a few block from Bourbon Street. The band was rocking some amazing original funk-inspired tunes and the bar service was awesome!

A friend who is a local recommended the place. The place wasn't crowded at the time I was there. But the band who played that night was good. I intend to go there the next time I visit NOLA.

We only stayed a little at the end of the night. We went upstairs for free music. Not that crowded for a Saturday but I think everyone was downstairs for the main band. Smaller space so everyone can see band
