Snug Harbor is a great jazz club in an intimate setting on Frenchman Street featuring the great Ellis Marsalis on Friday nights. Even at age 82, Ellis still has it and was backed by 4 excellent young musicians- saxophonist Derek Douget, trumpeter Ashlin Parker, bassist Jason Stewart, and drummer Stephen Gordon. Parker in particular was incredible. The main floor at Snug Harbor offers great sight lines and the bar offers strong drinks. What more can one want?
HINT Definitely get tickets in advance as especially the 8pm show sells out well before show night.
