Skip Bourbon Street and its craziness and spend all (or most) of your time on Frenchmen Street! Listen to live jazz and blues around the clock at any of the awesome clubs here.

My review of Bourbon St mentioned many times how bad the whole street smells likes garbage, throw up and urine. Frenchman St is a much better choice for adults that want to hear live music and enjoy the night. The street is still pretty busy...More

I can't even begin to describe how much our New Orleans trip was bettered by stay on Frenchman Street! When you come to this city, you have to understand there will be noise...all the time. For us, hearing jazz wasn't even close to a problem....More

Great place for walking and we had the bonus of a band playing along the street which added an extra a bit of atmosphere to the place

Absolutely loved Frenchman street. Truly the best part of New Orleans. Friendly people laid back vibe. Wished we had found it first night out. Would travel back just to visit this amazing atmosphere!

Fantastic bars with great music. I found Frenchmens Street a little less intimidating than Bourbon St as a solo female traveller.

I must say, I liked Frenchman Street much more then I did Bourbon St. its more authentic and I notice a lot of the locals of a mature crowed where in that area. The bars had live music and felt genuinely like NOLA. I had...More

Snug Harbor has a hidden performance room with a great lineup. The $30 admission for Marsalis was worth it! Other places or no cover and still good musicians. The drinking crowds are on Bourbon St. so you can walk here without the chaos. The street...More

Wonderful street of local flare! Great food, great music! The “adult” bourbon street if you will 😊. Don’t miss out on this place!

Frenchmen Street is what Bourbon St. would be if Bourbon St. wasn’t as preoccupied with getting trashed. Lots of live music and good food.

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

Just walk up and down Frenchman street and peek in each bar and just listen. Every night is different, so the bands, and vibe will be different. It will depend on what you like and what moves you at that moment. There's... More

yes, they are. The music it varies from blues, to jazz, just enough to make you listen, and enough to make you dance.

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
