This place is very magical! There is great music in all the club and even on the street. There are many artistic people there - much better than Bourbon Street!

Great place to escape the young, drunken crowds on Bourbon Street and listen to some great live music. Not very long, only about 3 blocks but lots of great music and art along the street. Be sure to stop at Dat Dog for some unique...More

To get the New Orleans experience, come to this colorful street; music spilling out from the clubs. Bands just form on corners and play. Looks like there are lines for most of the restaurants though. But in general a must see~!

Frenchman street has a more artsy vibe than French quarter. Walked through a flea market style area. Many artist displayed their art and many are for sale. Bars line the street for options for drinks and music

We enjoyed the music, the drinks, the crowds, the impromptu parades, and the little shops. The 3090 was a perfect place to wind down our evening with live music!

One of those places where people like to get as drunk as possible as fast as possible! Being there on Sunday night we couldn't really find any good music.

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

Snug Harbor for sure! It might be a bit pricey compared to the walk in to a bar off the street spots available on Frenchman Street, but well worth it. High caliber music, intimate setting, and not an open bar atmosphere... More

Over would not stay on Frenchman. Stay by French markets/ Jackson square then you can walk there to the river etc. It's a quaint little area. That's where I'm going to take my kids

I'm sure they do but there is music on the streets everywhere. Just wander around and talk to a few locals and you''ll be fine.
