We were just in NOLA and loved Frenchman Street and wish we had much more time to explore it! It feels authentic in comparison to Bourbon Street, less commercial and more fun. (A caveat here is that Bourbon Street is currently torn up for street...More

Not too many years ago, you didn't walk down Frenchmen street alone. One of the locals told me people would carry a fake wallet to hand to the robbers. But many streets in New Orleans were like that. It has been developed in a good...More

Often overlooked by the tourists who flick to Bourbon Street and Jackson Square but Frenchmen Street is the heart of the music district and s great road to soak in the New Orleans ambiance. Quite a few bars with live music played all day. There...More

Compared to bourbon it was less lively, the area is a little dangerous we walked by a shooting on the way there. I'd go in the day, exercise caution but some beautiful jazz music and definitely some people to tell you a story

Music in every doorway, not a Disney World version of New Orleans. There is a gumbo of musical styles coming from every doorway. Sometimes a cover, sometimes not. Tip the musicians cheapo’s this a tradition that will die out if not supported. No chain musical...More

Walking down this street with my family was super scary. The whole street is slummy and not like in movies. I would stay away.

Visited early enough before they were feeding or cared so my 16 yo was able to pop in a couple of the clubs and listen to great music.

This is the place to be at night in New Orleans, lots of music clubs with a non-stop party atmosphere that doesn't feel contrived, just people who genuinely love the music and want to enjoy it in as unpretentious a setting as possible. Have a...More

If you come to new orleans. Dont get stuck only on bourbon street. Frenchmen is better for sure . We had a great time everywhere so go up and down all streets in the french quarter. You never know whats on them

If you want to hear real New Orleans music with locals and tourists, skip Bourbon Street and head to Frenchman Street.

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 didn’t go on day time, but... it’s more about bars and jazz, not sure if it will be fun for a 17 YO. Sorry I couldn’t be of more help! Take the Voodoo tour with him!
