Walk Frenchmen St afternoon or night for great food, drinks, but mostly music!!! Artists and musicians all over. Most venues have no cover. Those that do aren't any better.

We were told this was a must stop! The music locals were closed during the day except a few! The restaurants were few and far between! May have been the worst week to visit due to the freezing temperatures!

Would definitely recommend a night on Frenchman Street for great jazz music. The Spotted Cat has great drinks and music. Maison also had good bands, plus a dance floor after 10pm.

Probably more fun at night when there is music, but we walked there during the day. The street looks run down and pretty tawdry by daylight, and the walk there took us past some pretty rum characters.

Everywhere we went along this street was alive with beautiful jazz music. This is the place to be for that. A lot of the places get packed quickly, but squeeze in, grab a drink, and enjoy the local vibe.

Wonderful atmosphere, people and bars. Live music fills every corner of Frenchman and fills out onto the street, Don't miss this NOLA gem if you're in the area!

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

RF’s is great and family friendly, but I would not recommend Frenchmen Street as it was quite scary.

Jackson Square is much more lively in the day time, lots to do. Frenchman is much more lively in the evening with lots of great music. Enjoy
