We had heard about Three Muses so decided to try it out. We knew it was more of a bar than restaurant, but inside the location looks more like a bar and music venue versus a restaurant - its a mix of all three and its bit confused about what they want to be. The menu is also a bit... More

This place specializes in small portions, so that you need to order at least 2 plates each. I am not to excited about sharing my food with everyone at the table. Just not my thing. Maybe I have a germ phobia, but I don't like others forks near my food. I found it to be over priced and to crowded... More

I visit New Orleans once a year. Three Muses is the top of my list. I enjoy the small plates & entertainment. They accommodate me by having vegan options while the rest of my party can have what they enjoy! Definitely recommend this place if you are Visiting NOLA.

Had dinner here last night at the location on Maple- it was amazing! I had the lamb sliders and the mussels, and the buttermilk drops for dessert. It was all so delicious! My dining companion was related to the chef so he sent out some complimentary plates, so I also got to try the wild mushroom dish and the bacon... More

We heard rave reviews about the food and the music here, so were excited to try it out. Maybe we hit an off night, but the service was horrendous, and the drink and food portions tiny. We had to get our own menus, and ask the hostess for drinks after 10 minutes. When our waiter Ben finally came over 20... More

As a vegetarian, visiting NOLA had me worried my options would be limited. Three Muses not only had a vegetarian section of the menu (mac & cheese was AMAZING) but delicious cocktails and great live music. Cozy setting right in the Marigny on Frenchmen - easy access to fun bars and clubs all around!

I live within walking distance to this place. I went to hear a friend's band. Never again. When you reserve your table, they let you know up front that you only have 90 minutes. Met at the door by an unfriendly doorperson. $40 dollar bottle of very low quality wine, very unfriendly waiter, lots of pressure to buy another bottle... More

We had stopped in to hear live music and we're so impressed we came back a second night for dinner. The tapas style menu items were all delicious and many sharable. Also LOVE that you could enjoy the music and dinner conversation at the same time! Definitely will return! Great service.

Not too big to feel lost in, not too small to feel cramped, just big enough to feel part of the community enjoying the ambience, the food and the music.When we left the musicians were enjoying a meal after their set, which was firmly in the Nina Simone groove…..pianist/singer, double bass and a guitarist/percussionist, who delivered just enough grit and...

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighbourhood Profile
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 destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.
