Great for Jazz and Blues
Jul 2021
We went to the Spotted Cat at about 5pm and saw a Jazz band. But ate at DAT Dog. I would go with a group, though. Don't drive here, parking sucks. Take a shared car or taxi. Or ride one of the mule wagons. We walked here from Carondelet and Lafayette but took a Lyft back to the hotel.

Glad it is back open
Jul 2021
I am so glad the music street is back open after the pandemic. This is such a fun place to go at night when in New Orleans. I hope to see more restaurants open in the next year or so.

The place to go for jazz and good music!
Jul 2021
We have given up on Bourbon Street (too busy, lewd, and noisy... and very little jazz). Frenchmen Street is our place to go for the music scene. During our recent visit, we enjoyed jazz/swing by the Rug Cutters who appeared at at Favela Chic (no cover but tips strongly encouraged). They even had a set where we enjoyed watching a couple of swing dancers. We sat at the socially distanced bar and ordered cocktails, but the pizza seemed to be flying off the shelves in the rest of the restaurant. There's always lots to see and do on Frenchmen Street!

Some of the best jazz music in New Orleans can be found on this street in a two block long section. When my husband and I visited in the late afternoon, several of the clubs were not open yet. Bamboula's was open and the live jazz was wonderful! I recommend strolling down this street the next time you are in New Orleans.

A nice break in the Big Easy!
Jul 2021 • Friends
Visited Frenchman and it was a nice break from Bourbon St. Tons of live music and drinks. A more relaxed place to just sit and enjoy.

Great for jazz
Jul 2021 • Couples
Very fun and festive part of town, way less crowded and wild as Bourbon St. Great small jazz venues all along about 4 blocks. We were there on Fri night and Sat afternoon. We didn’t have a meal but there are places, we just enjoyed the music and scene. Cool record store there too.

Good Alternative to French Quarter
Jun 2021
If you're tired of the French Quarter, this is a good option. It's just off of Esplanade. Ruby Slipper is good for breakfast. The brewery in this neighborhood is good too. Nice courtyard in back. It's fun to just walk around the neighborhood and look at the houses.

Great live jazz
Jun 2021 • Couples
Great jazz at the Spotted Cat and saw Dominick Grillo and the Frenchmen Street All Stars, with only a $10 cover charge. Relaxed atmosphere of people appreciating the good music. We’ll be back on our next NOLA visit.

This is street the best kept secret in the French Quarter.
Jun 2021
We first spotted this area when taking a city tour by horse and carriage. It was so pretty, interesting, and the architecture was amazing. We immediately knew we had to come back and we did. But we also chose to come back at night. Bourbon St is for some folks, this was perfect for us. We had a friend with us for the last few days of our week who gave us a personal tour. So glad we didn't miss this area. Lot's to enjoy.
