Frenchman street was what I expected. A street full of local musicians. Small bars and good music. A little seedy but adds to its locals charm. U will not find the collection of music elsewhere in New Orleans

Frenchman street was just like everything my wife and I had read about. We had reservations at one club for dinner, so we walked over in the morning, just so we could look in the windows of all the famous tiny and not so tiny places in the daylight.

The Court of... More

Bourbon Street has now been eclipsed by Frenchmen Street if you want to hear good music. We booked ahead at the Jazz Harbor which was small, quaintly old and cosy with some of the best jazz I have heard in a long while. The cool Margaritas went down well and the show was very good.

So alive during the night. Music everywhere and it all sounds great! Areas around it seem a little dodgy, but the maon strip itself was well lit and populated.

Here is where you can find the best jazz of New Orleans. Look for the Snug Harbor Jazz, you won't regret!!!
