“Fun area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

Definitely a fun area to stroll around and feel New Orleans of yesteryear. Poke your head in the many stops along the way.

“Mis-informed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

This is the real spot to go for Jazz and great scenery, the pin on the trip adviser took us way out of the way, to a not so good neighborhood and really nothing but cemetery's. It was basically on the very east outside of the French Corner, it was only walking distence from our hotel (Hotel Royal) but we went by the trip advisor and took a cap to no where we wanted to get out and came back, on our way back we found the building in this picture.

“St. Patty's Parade & Dinner”

This area is GREAT! There is good NOLA live music and good nightlife. It's a really nice alternative if you want to stay off Bourbon St. Even great during the day.

“Artsy”

I love Frenchman Street because it is lined with awesome music venues and fantastic art. Get there early though (before 8) so you can get in.

“Fantastic Jazz”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

For a first timer in New Orleans, this area is everything I hoped it would be. Only a few blocks East of the French Quarter, with what has to be the best bands anywhere. You have the Blue Nile, Spotted Cat, d.b.a., Snugg Harbor, among others. This is NOT Bourbon St.,; this is seriously good music. The clubs are small; a lot of them have only a one drink minimum with no cover. You can't beat that anywhere. Some of the bands have CD's for sale. Don't forget to tip the bands; I don't think they get paid much else.
