This was our favorite place on Bourbon. Great drinks, super friendly waitresses and THE BEST jazz band. We laughed and drank and enjoyed every second. Highly recommend.

There are many, many very good music venues in NOLA. (Duh.) But this place may be the very best. It's small (which adds to its appeal) but the service is good as are the drinks. And only drinks, no food. Do not miss this place....More

Don’t leave the city before visiting this bar! They have multiple shows during the night, at every 30-40min! They are great! You need to buy a drink when you enter, but they are very good! Don’t miss this place, seriously! This was the place that...More

Fritzel's Jazz Band is an amazing authentic Jazz band. Each musician is a wonderful soloist and 2 of them have some of the most Jazzy vocals I've ever heard. You do have to buy a drink, but the drinks were good! A must on Bourbon...More

When we are in New Orleans, Fritzel's is always on our schedule...several times! It is the best, and one of the last remaining places, to hear authentic jazz with great local groups, decent drinks and prices (no food). We enjoyed it both nights we went....More

A friend told me to “go there, you’ll thank me”, and I did! I was lucky to drop in while the great Richard Scott was playing. In a town with great music, this is one of the best venues.

This place was fantastic...and not the typical binge drink spot that kind of defines burbon st. Had real jazz and nice atmosphere. This was our fav spot on burbon street by far!

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

There is no cover. I believe you can buy soda or bottled water. Alternatively, make new friends and buy your seat neighbor a drink. Supporting the bar/musicians in this fashion is a small price to pay for such quality... More

It's just a little more intimate of a setting. I wasn't exactly impressed with it. There's a private bar with low lighting and two different rooms.
