“Make sure not to miss this!”
Reviewed March 23, 2007

Do you love authentic, great jazz music? Are you semi-adventurous? Then the Funky Butt is worth it. The first room is a small bar where all the walls are black and you'll wonder what you got yourself into. But then you move to the next room and man are you glad you came! Seriously, it's not dangerous but it's where musicians go to listen to other good musicians!

Take a walk on the funky side. If you've got some kick in ya, you'll like this place!

“Don't be put off by the location!”
Reviewed April 20, 2004

If you want a great New Orleans music experience, this is definitely the place to go. The bar is cozy, the staff is friendly, and the music is phenomenal! We visited on two different weeknights. Each time, a local band was playing. As the sets went on, other local musicians would wander in and join the band. Talk about classic New Orleans! It was great! We loved watching talented young musicians throwing down their best licks, one-upping each other. We definitely got an up-close-and-personal musical experience. If you want classic rock cover bands and blaring rap, stick to Bourbon Street. If it's great up and coming jazz musicians you want to check out, the Funky Butt is where it's at!

The Funky Butt was more than I expected it to be. Everything was really nice. If you like to get up close and personal with everyone this is the place to be.
