Saw Galactic here about 4 years ago on New Years. It was a blast! Great venue. I like that there is both an upstairs and downstairs.

Thank Hara S

Went here to see George Clinton and had a blast! It gets very crowded and its a standing type event, so unless you are lucky enough to arrive early enough to grab one of the scattered couches on the second level, wear some comfortable shoes for standing. There is a VIP section, but honestly it was just as comfortable in the general section of the second level. The first level however, was packed like sardines!

The drinks were great and the bartenders were very friendly and fast. There isn't any food served here with exception of a vending machine I saw, however, there were a couple of food trucks that pulled up outside as we were going inside. I was told you can't take food inside, but you are welcome to come and go as you please.

I read a few reviews that said it was better than HOB. I'm not sure what the HOB is like in New Orleans, but it really doesn't compare to the one in Chicago. Its a much smaller venue, and as I said no real seating, not even near the bar.

The place is famous and it's a great small live music bar. We saw George Clinton and the place was packed. You are still able to get a drink the bar tenders are fast. You can find a places to see the stage without a major struggle. Very cool very NOLA

Sunday night was a great time to visit - music by Bruce Daigrepoint and dancing! For over 25 years Bruce has been performing Sunday nights, it is quite a treat and an invitation to visit another culture. Everyone dances (even if you don't , the regulars will show you how!). Its all very low key and festive at the same time. A great night to visit Tipitina's , listen to some great music and visit the legendary Tipitina's.
