So much fun on this street. You can wander from place to place and hear all different kinds of fantastic music.

If you don't mind a crowd and some great music, please visit Frenchmen Street. Probably the best night spent the whole time we were there.

If you can only go to one concert in New Orleans, go to Preservation Hall. But if you can go to 10, the next 9 should be on Frenchmen Street.

We loved wandering around this area with fun bars and great music. Much less crowded and drunken than Bourbon street. We ate dinner Three Muses, got drinks in a bar then saw a jazz show at Snug Harbor. A much more cool scene than Bourbon!

We went to Spotted Cat and Maison! Great live bands with music-lover atmosphere—no crazy stuff! Live Jazz, Jazz, Jazz! Don’t just go to Bourbon Street—walk the Frenchman!

Heading to my favorite place to stay when visiting New Orleans. Why?! My guest don’t have to worry about Uber, driving Drunk or walking drink. It’s one of New Orleans secrets. It sits right across from The Mint. Walk out your door, two blocks down...More

The real music is on Frenchman street. Bourbon street is for spring break mania. Frenchman street is for music.

Live music all up and down the street of all different types from large brass bands to solo singer/songwriters. Didn’t even need to go inside, our favorite brass band of the evening was a group of 10 or 15 buskers.
