Watched the Treme Brass Band- amazing to watch talented musicians up close. Different bands and types of music every night, great place to go.

Pretty much everything has been said about the bar and the location. And I don’t disagree. Visited the pub on a Thursday afternoon and it was almost empty. Decent selection of local brews on tap. I would visit again...

We went into d.b.a. just to have a beer and they had an all female band and they were fantastic. The place became packed to standing room only, but the service was great.

We were looking for an authentic musical experience in New Orleans. After popping into a few bars, we were disappointed that the bands were mainly doing covers of pop music rather than anything unique. We were relieved to find d.b.a., where we found great, original...More

Five dollars to get in for excellent jazz- the Treme Brass Band. We stood for both sets we liked it so much.

Great spot for live music. There are two different sides so if nothing is going on on one side, try the other. We caught a great little blues band. Not a lot of seats but plenty of standing room. People were even dancing up front...More

I visit Nola every year, and this club has never failed. Listened to Bon Bon Vivant this time around, and absolutely loved it. The crowd is mixed and very friendly. It's a great club to kind of 'come and go' while walking down Frenchman. Very...More

Stopped by here and am so glad we did! The music was great. People were dancing and the musicians were a lot of fun. Great drinks, great music, great experience. Would definitely come again.

Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward,
the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely
residential. Of course, folks around here love to go
out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere
in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the
festivities, well then so much the better! Home to
some of the most revered live music venues in New
Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining
