Was a recommendation from our uber driver and we are so glad we went. Fun spot with lots of no cover, music bars and local artists displaying and selling work.

Tried Frenchman’s street this visit and had a great time. Not very family oriented except for restaurants. A lot of bar and local bands- very fun for a couple or family with older kids.

If you are looking for a more authentic experience this is it. There were tons of locals bars and incredible music. Bourbon street is a one night must but the rest of your trip go to Frenchman Street

Frenchmen was nicer than Bourbon street, but I'm too old to stay out as late as we did! It was a little scary after midnight.

Frenchmen street is very popular with lots of jazz bands and local artists. Not as crazy as Bourbon street and good local jazz. We were disappointed the night we went as not many bands were playing. But, in general, this is a key place to...More

Great bars with music and food to go along with drinks. Quirky artsy spot in NOLA. The spotted cat and bamboulas are faves

Very cute, lots of bars, music and food. They have outdoor market (stuff is way over priced in that one). I would not bring kids anywhere near this street. Nothing for them to do or see. There are lot of people homeless around this area...More

I didn't know about this place until I got to my hostel and a few people told me about it. It's a lot cleaner, not a sleazy and has better street performers. Be prepared to hear 'Born on the Bayou' way too much. They have...More

The music along this street is sensational and a must if you are in the area. You cannot pick a bar with a bad act. My daughter loves jazz but the US no entry till 21 kept us out but we watched from the street.

A must go place in New Orleans. I hit up Snug Harbor and Spotted Cat and took in some street music. It was magically, even on a Wednesday night.

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 agree with Erin below I think I hit the wrong button. Frenchman is a little more maid back but still has its own charm, and plenty of great music and more affordable drinks then Bourbon St.

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
