We spent a couple of hours walking the neighborhood. It was pretty run down but appears to be up and coming. We ventured into a bar with great music. There was a drink minimum purchase. Cant recall the name.

Since we we have experienced Bourbon Street we liked the sprit of Frenchman Street better because there are more music clubs and the crowd seems better behaved.

Not all the Music or Fun is on Bourbon Street. We walked down this area until we heard the type of Jazz we were looking for and went in for Dinner and Drinks to celebrate our pre-cruise night in New Orleans...

Was so much fun to stroll the streets, listening to the different clubs and the various types of music. Not to mention the street performers that make up the people of NOLA. Also a artsy area that showed the flare of the city. Everyone should...More

Where the real music has moved off Bourbon. No more shoulder to shoulder drunks. Frenchman has it all with out the smell of upchuck. Snug Harbor is where the real Jazz lovers go. Just go there.

First visit to NOLA. Went to Bourbon Street as do all the tourists but were then informed about Frenchmen Street. This is a much better place to hear local music. Great clubs and plenty of food. Unless you are under 30, stay away from Bourbon...More

We spend as much time on Frenchman street as possible when in NOLA. So many places to listen to so much fantastic music. Be it in the afternoon, evening or late at night, can't go wrong. A little open air market with goods for sale...More

Everyone wants to go to Bourbon st at first, then they realise it's all bars, and outside the streets are full of people trying to get into bars, the answer is more bars are needed to accomodate the crowds, but that won't really solve the...More

I was in NOLA for work but had some free time to explore. I quickly realized that Bourbon St. didn't grow up like I did so I wasn't too interested in excessive drinking or night life. What I did want to do was go listen...More

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

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