We went here on a Saturday night in January and it was very lively. Lots of live jazz music blasting from the different bars. We went in one but it was so packed you couldn't move, which I can't handle. Did seem fun though. There...More

Went on Wednesday July 18th. It was fantastic! We saw the Uptown Jazz Orchestra. If you have the opportunity to do just one jazz performance search for them. The service was great and everyone was super friendly.

Maybe it was my mistake but I walked from the French Quarter on a Saturday afternoon. The street itself was dirty and unkept, not what I was expecting from somewhere everyone (even the locals) raved about. As a solo traveller I would not have felt...More

I used to visit Frenchmen Street many years ago, and am a bit saddened to say that it is not nearly as "quaint" as I remembered. There is still alot of music, and it is certainly not as raunchy as Bourbon St.

The music clubs here are excellent. 2 blocks of bars and clubs with a variety of music going on. MUCH better than bourbon st.... less crowded, better music and a great vibe.

Good area to eat and listen to the local musicians in a quieter setting compared to Bourbon St. Less crowded and calmer.

I really enjoyed this area. The band was playing outside and people were dancing in the street. The crowd was an older crowd. The atmosphere was great

Each bar has a unique character and different type of music. Just stroll down the street and pick the one of your liking. Drinks are cheap, and the atmosphere is festive.

So much amazing live music. Every bar had a variety of music and I wanted to hear it all. Reggae, jazz, rock, and R&B. Really good bars that weren’t as overwhelming. Graffiti art was cool and really liked the neighborhood.

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

I didn't make reservations; I went early and got good seats. Many of the cover charges are in terms of one drink or two... not an outrageous charge on top of high priced drinks. OPEN TABLE has a great ap for reservations... More
