Live music, a full bar and a dance floor - what else could you ask for? This was another great stop made along Frenchman St. Highly recommend.

We came here after Voodoo Fest and had such a great time. The music, atmosphere, and people made the overall experience amazing. The jazz band (forgot their name) was great and had us dancing nonstop for a while.

On our first trip to New Orleans we hit the blue nile up and the music was awesome. Later when the headliner was getting ready to perform it got really crowded, but the atmosphere and the vibe was to good to let being crowded bother...More

We spent most of our evenings on Frenchman Street and enjoyed a band at the Blue Nile. They have plenty of room to dance and enjoy the music, making this a great venue. The variety of music differs from band to band and you can...More

Spent our best evening in NOLA here with some of the best music I’ve ever seen. We were lucky that the Brassaholics were playing whilst we were in town who are simply one of the best. Two bars make getting served OK but it could...More

I can't believe I haven't rated this place yet! If you visit (or live in) New Orleans and want incredible music you must head to Frenchmen Street...and for sure go to the Blue Nile! For me this is the best place for authentic, original music...More

We got there early and not full, the band was great and we stayed for 40 minutes, space to move and seating as well, good range of beer. Great way to end the day and relax

My husband and I had fun dancing and people watching. The drinks were NOT stingy with the alcohol and everyone from the servers to the other patrons were friendly. It's a fun place. We were there at about 8:30pm till about 10pm and it was...More

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
