went to hear Jon Cleary for the second time in NOLA--the first being years ago. My NOLA friends follow him. What a treat! what a place to hear good music. The food--BBQ & such--is passable. Go early, at least 30 minutes before the announced start time of a set, to get a table, preferably one away from the bar, where... More

We also visited the other night to hear Jon Cleary and have a bite to eat. Took the streetcar up Canal from our place on Chartres. Arrived a half hour or so before Cleary's performance at 8. Like many places in NO, Chickie Wah Wah is pretty small - there aren't a lot of tables. When we arrived, all of... More

New Orleans musical landmark on upper Canal Street. Heard John Clarey perform. The music is the thing. The cover for superior talent is expected and gladly handed over. Great New Orleans experience for two first time visitors

Outstanding music venue on Canal right off the trolley line. We saw 3 performances one evening and they were all great. The club attracts best local musicians and well knowns drop in from time to time. Get off the beaten path a little for best live music venue we have found in New Orleans. A must stop for us now...

Be adventurous and take the Canal Street car down to this little gem of a music club. Hear top-notch local musicians in an intimate club setting, away from the craziness of the French Quarter or Frenchmen Street. Many nights there are two or three acts per night -- most of them worthwhile. But be forewarned -- While this place used... More

We were tipped off about this place by our B &B host, located 5 blocks away on Canal St. We just had snacks, which were cheap and good, but the highlight was the music and the vibe. A full jazz orchestra crammed onto the stage played soem of the best we heard in NOLA, accompanied by a couple great vocalists.... More

I love this place! Intimate, friendly, really reasonable cover charge and drink prices. They get great acts in a small and familiar surrounding. Acoustics and sound system terrific. Dont miss it
