I found this place on a google search while planning my 5 days in New Orleans and what a great find it was. I wanted to catch some live music in the afternoon before we took a break before dinner and Chickie Wah Wah did not disappoint. The performer that day was't really my style but extremely talented none the... More

Go get some delicious food, then stick around for the party. Friendly folks that'll make you feel at home and show you a good time. Right next door to Eaglerider Motorcycle Rentals.

We were in the neighbor so why not... The early act was just arriving, the place looked barely open. But the bartender was super nice. I have a fondness for a copper top bar. Beer selection is solid (there is a full bar). Guitarist started playing for the few of us there at 6pm, it was more than entertaining and... More

Well worth getting out of the French Quarter or Frenchman to hear music! The bands change but the ambiance stays the same: a must do for anyone who loves superb music

We saw Meschya Lake and the Little Bighorns (qurter actually), but we really liked this bar/live music venue on Canal St. If they've got a band you're interested in, get out of tourist territory and join the locals for some true New Orleans performances.

This is a nice little bar with a live music stage. The barbecue food smelled great, but we were there for the music. We had found a music video by a singing duo called "Alexis and the Samurai" and tracked them down to Chickie Wah Wah on Monday night. The girl has a fabulous voice and her partner is a... More

I was surprisingly impressed by the service & quality of the food at this music venue. Great Brisket Sandwich, Pimento Grilled Cheese with Pulled Pork, BBQ Beans, and the Oh-So-Special Brussels Sprouts. Catch a bite and and early show right on Canal St via the Streetcar.

This is a great little music venue not too far up Canal street. Its very easy to find and you can get there on the free street cars. We went on a Monday night when a duo called Alexis and the Samurai were playing. This was a great stroke of luck as these two were fantastic. Apparently they are regular... More
