A bit off the beaten path but an amazing street. Some of the best restaurants and music venues are located here. Loved it!

On our last night of our trip we decided to check out the buzz about Frenchman Street...we were not let down by this 3 or so block stretch. Several different restaurants, a few bars and most importantly some awesome music venues. Most were small in size but that just improved the vibe. On a weeknight during Jazz Fest the street was busy. We checked out a few music venues and hit up the Arts/Crafts Market which was fun to walk thru and eventually led us into an art exhibit and some more music inside a warehouse. There was even music on the street corner which was of high quality. Quite an experience and a place I will remember to hit up more next time I visit!

The part of Frenchmen Street near the French Quarter have some Jazz bars that offers either 2 or 3 for the price of 1 drinks in the early evening but most without air conditioning. Across the street from the bars is a small park where a lot of homeless people stays. Further up Frenchmen is a poor residential section that's kind of scary after dark.

Advice from locals and seasoned visitors was to visit Frenchmen St for great music. They were not wrong. We only made it into two or three bars during the few hours we were there. My favourite was The Spotted Cat. We heard two great bands, saw some excellent lindy hopping locals, drank good beer at reasonable prices (cash only) and met good people.

We walked to Frenchman Street from our Hotel (crossing Esplanade on Chartres in the process), and were immediately charmed by the enthusiastic, cheeky, and wonderfully talented brass and drum band on the corner. We ate at The Three Muses (cheese board and small plates - awesome!) while listening to a soft rock/soft jazz band. We strolled the two blocks on both sides of the street, chatting with other tourists and locals as well. What a delightful experience.
