Reviewed October 23, 2012 via mobile

What else is there to say? Recommended by a local and populated by locals. The quality of the music is outstanding in this small intimate venue.

“This place is just too cool!”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Great name for a place, fantastic music. I just wish there was more seating but understand why there is not. But getting to listen to great music for the price of a drink is impossible at most place in the world. If you are in New Orleans, get yourself to Frenchmen St. and definitely take in a set at the CAT!

Reviewed October 20, 2012

....and I got it. All the boxes ticked. A great band playing. Good drinks. Great place to start or end the night. Everything I expected NOLA to be.

“The best”
Reviewed October 16, 2012 via mobile

Dixieland jazz, no cover. 'Nuff said. Come here. Period.
One drink minimum. Very few people stuck to that limit ;-)

“A must visit while in New Orleans”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Be sure to go to Frenchmen Street if you're in the mood for jazz and be sure to spend some time at the Spotted Cat. Lots of positive energy in the room, fun to watch the dancing or get up there and try it for yourself. We had a great time. One of the highlights of our visit to New Orleans.
