After a ribs-to-die-for dinner at The Joint, we headed to Frenchmen Street’s Spotted Cat to round out the meal with a cold brew and some fabulous music. Venue was jam packed with people adding to the buzz. One elderly couple showed off their jaw-dropping dance...More

This is just outside the French Quarter. The Spotted Cat Music Club had been recommended to us, so we made the effort to find it and had a drink while listening to Pauline Barnes and the Fiya Birds.

Frenchman Street is located in the French Quarter. Known as the classier Bourbon Street & supposedly a locals favorite. Excellent cafes, bars, jazz clubs, restaurants, art, & candy stores for your pleasure. Then if you want to get a little wild, go to a burlesque...More

Frenchmen St. is where the action is. Bourbon is a fine place for passing out, but if you really want to have a good time spend a few hours on Frenchmen St. visiting a couple of music clubs. They will likely have a cover charge,...More

Check this street out. So much better than Bourbon Street. Great music everywhere, and great restaurants.

We went during the day and it seems dirty and a little sketchy. I did not feel super safe. When we went at night, the crowd in the bars seemed more typical and somewhat a good atmosphere.

If you want to experience the culture of New Orleans head down to Frenchman Street. Good music, good food, good people and an awesome night out. A must do.

A must see when you're in New Orleans. Try the alligator sausage. Good deal on T shirts and sweatshirts

Just walk up and down Frenchman street and peek in each bar and just listen. Every night is different, so the bands, and vibe will be different. It will depend on what you like and what moves you at that moment. There's... More

yes, they are. The music it varies from blues, to jazz, just enough to make you listen, and enough to make you dance.

Outdoor Happy Hour/Cheap drinks & food in French Quarter (9 Replies)
Going for our first time in October and I'm one who likes to plan everything out in advance to eat and drink at good places but also at cheap prices. We really enjoy the atmosphere of sitting outdoors and early October should be ideal for this. I'm trying to mix in some nice restaurants along with some cheaper but good dives. My plan is to take advantage of the lunch specials/ happy hour at some of the nice places and have dinner at some of the cheaper places. We are only going to be...More

I don't know if you use Pinterest but I basically planned out last trip to NOLA by searching for what I wanted (found Luke's crazy oyster HH on Pinterest). Also check Travel Guides under New Orleans on TripAdvisor.

This has seemed like a long time coming, but I think with the holidays it will probably fly. I've spent so much time preparing I hope I haven't taken anything away from the experience. The hubby finally asked yesterday..."so what are we doing". I told him he could plan the afternoons and evenings and I would take the mornings. We want to spend some time gambling, but I don't want to spend the whole time in the casino. I know this won 't be my last time in NO, so I'm going to try to do at...More

Great nights sleep thanks to room darkening curtains. Up and out of the room about 9am. There are really no restaurants on the Harrah's hotel property-closest thing would be a coffee stand as you go to the casino and then the buffet in the casino. We don't need much for breakfast so just headed to the MacDonalds on Canal street-definitely a place for people watching. Some of the homeless spend some time here but management is good about keeping them moving. Saw many families with kids in...More
