I've been to the Blue Nile on several occasions and never had a bad night there. The club is spacious, has some seating away from the stage, has several different choices of beer , as well as mixed drinks, and is very reasonably priced.

The mural on the ceiling is quite interesting and the bartenders are efficient and cordial, despite being very busy. On this particular night Kermit Ruffins and the BBQ Swingers were there playing the late show (11pm). We stayed for both sets, the first lasting much longer than the second with both being excellent. Kermit can really blow that trumpet! He was smoking hot as he played "Skokkian" now famous from the Treme series on HBO. Soon after he played my favorite, St. James Infirmary. If you've not heard Kermit play this classic you need to check it out on YOUTube. He also played the Treme theme, Feels So Good, and a medley of New Orleans classics including Stand up and Get Crunk! between sets Kermit dj'ed some great dance music, too.

Waht an awesome night in an intimate setting!

Went to the Blue Nile last year during the BCS championship game. Very laid back place with great live music. Everyone should find this place and enjoy all of the Frenchmen area.
