This is the place to go for music. We started at Preservation Hall in the Quarter for original jazz at the 8 pm show then got Uber to Frenchman street. Hit art markets then 5-6 jazz clubs. Jazz clubs to watch out for are Blue...More

A short walk from the French quarter, this street features numerous restaurants/bars that feature live jazz and creole music. Most of the bars require a purchase/person/set. The music was excellent.

Despite this not being as sleasy as Bourbon street, this wasnt a place I would revisit. Dirty streets with some interesting bars but not my scene.

I was a bit disappointed with Frenchmen Street. Glad I saw it and experienced some music, but I wouldn't go back. Not a drinker, so besides bars, there are a few shops and places to eat.

Great area! Had a blast going in and out of small establishments listening to some great talented & local musicians. It was crowded, but not like Bourbon Street - more of a local flair.

A good alternative to Bourbon Street, especially now Bourbon is completely overrun with high fences and construction noise as they put new drainage pipes in. Frenchman is a little more subdued but definitely the street to be on for jazz music and some good restaurants....More

Frenchman made us say "Bourbon, WHO?". Draws a more refined crowd, still looking for a good time. We will be back!

If you're looking for a great night with awesome live music and free-flowing drinks, head to Frenchmen and avoid Bourbon at all costs.

Tour the market in the shade and just take in all the stuff there. Many good places to eat also surround the market.

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

I am taking my two teenage kids for their first New Orleans experience. Being in jazz band, I know they would love to listen to some authentic New Orleans jazz. Do you know if the venues on Frenchmen Street permit teenagers with their parents into their establishments?

There is Preservation Hall in the Quarter which operates on weekends, and does three shows a nigh. On Frenchman's street all the venues were 18 and over.

I'm going to be in New Orleans on the last weekend of Jazzfest (May 6-7) and I'm wondering if Frenchmen Street will be really quiet on the Sunday, or if it'll be similar to what it is on Saturdays?

I would say it depends on the time of the day. If you go early, it may not be too crowded but being a fest timeframe, be prepared for a higher than average activity level.

I would say 20 minutes. Lots of shops to stop and shop at thou. Or a bar or two to stop into.
