“"Short hop on the street car"”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Lovely Bar with a superb lineup of artists and the best "sammich" I have had in New Orleans in a long time. I went on the strength of seeing that Jon Cleary was playing a solo set even though I had seen him the night before. The Bar looks fantastic and the owner is a nice bloke and very friendly. Jon Cleary was as usual out of this world and a unexpected surprise to have a quick chat with him in between sets at the bar. Went back the following night to see Alvin Youngblood Hart who was also sublime. Must mention again the chef is amazing! the best sandwiches I have ever tasted. Highly recommended.

“Worth the ride up Canal St.”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Great place for excellent music and a very good, reasonably priced NOLA meal/sandwich. Top rate musicians frequent this establishment on a regular basis. Check their web-site for updates schedules, you'll be glad you went.

“Big thumbs up”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Over the last year this long-time local and native has grown to appreciate and attach to Chickie Wah Wah as a special and reliable destination for music, adult beverages and good food. Not only are the owners filling an important niche in the already ample music schedule in the city with carefully chosen performers, they also provide a wide comfort zone for their patrons. Their bar is easy to get to, has sufficient parking, is smoke-free and provides the best, cleanest bathrooms you'll find in any bar, anywhere. Cover charges, food and drinks are fairly priced, with better than average seating availability as well. A big thumbs up!

“Gem of a Find”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

Great Music combined with great food creates a wonderful atmosphere to spend any evening. They always have good music, and it is non smoking. The bar prices are great, inexpensive delicious eating--The Tuna was amazing--. Truly a gem in New Orleans which combines food, music and drink for a grand slam. A place you will keep coming back too..
