Unique spot to catch some zydeco music while in New Orleans. Relaxed, community feel and great music (Geno Delafose) made it well worth the short cab ride.

cover charge goes to the band, who sets 'their' price well worth it given the quality of the TOP acts who play here and intimacy of the venue imho
