Great bars playing live Jazz, Blues, and Zydeco, Just like Bourbon but without the strip joints and hyped up fake beers.

This was a great place to take a break from Bourbon Street. Was still busy, but not overwhelming. Really great music at every bar.

Frenchmen Street is about 3 blocks long. All the bars served food. All the bars had awesome live music. A beer was only $4. I loved it!

French Quarter was great, but Bourbon Street was SO packed and crowded that we decided to look for another area that was fun, lively but not suffocating. A Uber driver took us to Frenchmen Street and we LOVED it. There's a better mix of crowd...More

Frenchman Street during Mardi Gras is a less drunken street stagger than Bourbon Street with much better music inside and out on the street. A bit less crowded and more orderly. In the bars the emphasis is on the music, not on the alcohol. Generally...More

A 1 mile walk across the French Quarter. Good music bars if you want to listen music. Some acts are better than others but if you don't like the act, move on to another bar. Don't expect great food, some places are cash only and...More

Great clubs and bars with little cover charge or none. Do yourself a favor and stop by the Frenchmen Hotel bar and grab a drink and appetizer. They serve elegant bar food late night

A much calmer street than Bourbon Street. We Uber'd here from our hotel and traffic is thick! We ate at Maison's and they had a wonderful jazz band-Smokin Time Jazz Club- who were awesome. They end around 9:30pm and the "bouncers" pick up all the...More

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

Jackson Square is much more lively in the day time, lots to do. Frenchman is much more lively in the evening with lots of great music. Enjoy
