Went here on the recommendation of a frequent visitor and we were not disappointed. Slightly out of the way, but not with Uber, small indoor space with much larger patio outside, where you can still hear the music. Don;'t expect anything fancy but good friendly...More

Kermit is definitely in the coolest guy in the universe club, and his place in the Treme has a lot to do with that. We got there early on a Sunday. Hung out with the man himself and with Kermit's family. Watched the parade roll...More

I can't speak highly enough about this establishment. We walked in from the quarter (which many will tell you is a bad idea); we found the walk to be quick and easy and not at all intimidating. The food was stellar and we had a...More

Visiting from San Francisco, we were looking forward to hearing Kermit at his Speakeasy. The show was billed as Kermit and his band. We showed up over an hour early to get seats. A drummer, electric piano player and bass guitarist came on, the latter...More

I encourage every lover of music to make this a must when in New Orleans. My party did not arrive early enough to partake of the amazing looking food... but the music and people (both performers and patrons) I found to be unmatched.

This is New Orleans, circa 2013. Sunday night at Kermit's Treme Speakeasy with Mr. Ruffin at the mic. This was my most memorable musical experience in New Orleans next to a 7th Ward 2nd Line parade. And you just feel the cultural richness of Treme...More

That sound? That flavor? That certain je ne sais quoi
that lets you known you’re in “Nawlins” and nowhere
else? It’s all good and in broad abundance on the
streets of Tremé, where so much of what’s considered
to be the very best of New Orleans culture and
tradition is, put simply, just how people go about
their daily lives in this historic part of town. As
one of America’s oldest African-American neighborhoods
