We’ve been there after a short walk on Burbon street and found out this is the best bar of the street with real music and real skilled musicians. The blues masters were playing and we enjoyed them so much! I definitively recommend this place!

We always go to Fritzel's--minimum 3-set stay--some of our favorite musicians are regular performers there. The only problem? Too many people--so, you have to get there early to get a seat.

The man can mix a Bloody Mary and the spicy doesn’t equate to salty like so many others. Nite life will take you back to the 20’s for sure. A favorite “haunt” whenever we go to New Orleans.

Everytime we go to New Orleans we come here, wonderful place to come listen to jazz and blues music, one of the few places left to experience the true New Orleans vibe.

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

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.

They can't get into the bar, but there are lots of other places where jazz bands play. I would suggest a restaurant.

To the best of my knowledge, they begin only at 9 PM. But certainly check the website for more information.
