No trip to New Orleans with them be complete without a visit to Tipitina's. Great music, New Orleans style, along with a great place to drink. Clearly one of my favorite places I've ever been

We saw North Mississippi All-stars. They rocked but was equally or more impressed with the venue. We got there early, saw the opening act, and grabbed a spot upstairs. Close to washroom, bar and with GREAT view of stage. Sound was good and just the...More

Although I am getting older and I didn't think I would stay more than 15 minutes, I stayed for the entire anniversary show with Walter Wolfman Washington and his band. The band connected with the audience in such a way that I completely forgot about...More

This legendary, unpretentious venue made for a very fun Saturday evening in NOLA during French Quarter Fest. The crowd was energetic and we really enjoyed both the opening band and the main act. Come early if you'd like a better viewing spot. As a plus,...More

If you want to have a locals type experience then go to Tipitinas. This is one of a handful of places that have been around for what seams like forever. Catch a live show of original music, not just recycled Burbon St. brown eyed girl.

Tipitina's is the place to watch local and national acts perform in a small venue atmosphere. It is the house that Professor Longhair built! It is a must visit on your next trip to New Orleans!

Great legendary music venue. Bartenders were friendly, sound was great, and everywhere seemed to have a great view. It does have some drawbacks though. Our tickets said will call at 8:30, doors open at 9. Unfortunately the first act didn't start until 10 and the...More

So we can't see Fess play there, isn't Mac the next best thing? The staff is always awesome and this is one of the quintessential music venues in a city full of iconic music venues. Always a good time!

Head to the Garden District for the full-on New
Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking
streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions,
picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded
down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful
churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a
brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the
Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give
