This was one of the more memorable experiences I had last week in New Orleans. We paid extra for front row seating. They checked for proof of vaccine and insisted that you keep your mask on during the 45 min performance. This was appreciated since the space is unusually small and cozy. I didn’t really know what to expect but the first note proved to be a toe tapping, head bobbing good time. The audience actually screamed at one point because the music was so good. I can’t say enough about this show. This is a must do! Worth every penny and the staff was extremely friendly. Limited shows during the week and reservations make sense if you want one of those front row seats

We ended up going to Fritzel’s twice during our relatively short stay (four night) stay in New Orleans. We thoroughly enjoyed their superb jazz band on the Thursday evening we were there and felt comfortable with the open-air arrangement. The music was top-notch and we really liked the environment. The drinks are also reasonably priced and we enjoyed sipping as we were serenaded. We also returned the last night we were in town and got a hurricane in a go cup which was only $4.00 and was delicious and wonderfully mixed. If you only have one night in the Quarter and want a pleasant and reasonably-priced experience with great music and good drinks, Fritzel’s is the place to go.

Can to New Orleans for a weekend getaway and try it’s famous food and enjoy the music. Wanted to avoid the craziness of the bars and found this low key lounge featuring great jazz music. Drinks were great and reasonably priced. Staff was hospitable and our waitress Jamie was very nice. Only slight negative is there wasn’t a dress code and a lot of the patrons wore very casual clothes. I’d definitely check this place out again if I’m in town.

Dos Jefes is a classic dive bar/smoking lounge. The added bonus is the live music! Take a look around at the wooden indians, the case of fine cigars, and your fellow patrons, equally as interesting! The band was Keith Stone and Red Gravy, with special guest Lionel Batiste Jr. on percussion and Kazoo.We got there for the first set, and a round of drinks, and some cigars. Good music, fine drink, and cigars. It cold almost transport you into a different place and time!I suggest taking a Lyft or Uber, although there is plenty of parking. Usually not a cover, but I urge you to tip the band and the wait staff – they know the drink selections and can be fun and sassy.While it is not in the French quarter, It is a real “out of the way” fun place to experience New Orleans. Don’t go if you have allergies or reactions to cigar smoke. Do go for the atmosphere and music.

Recently attended one of the Cajun Zydeco Festival outdoor concerts, and while the grounds are nice and the presentation was spot-on, I was less than impressed with the food and drink offerings and the band itself, because it should be obvious to anyone who’s attended the Cajun Zydeco fest at Armstrong Park what it should be like, namely a lot of fun and dancing! Cold fish, in comparison, at this one.

If you’re looking for jazz on Frenchman, there is no better place to go. Owner is very friendly and accommodating. So nice to see they are open again and selling out pretty much every show. Drinks prices are reasonable and the beer selection is good. Make sure to reserve tickets ASAP if you want to sit inside, with so few clubs open at the moment they can sell almost instantly, especially in the case of very well known groups.Looking forward to being back soon!

Went for a night cap… And guess who shows up… Craig Robinson. Unannounced and no advertisement at all. We were there watching the band about to leave and I looked to my left and saw somebody walking in. Didn’t take me but a second to recognize him. He got on stage and did an impromptu show. Kind of a medley and had really good audience participation. Drink prices are good atmosphere is good and not too crowded.

This is a true music venue, they have an entrance fee for different band at different time. Not so crowded and the AC is pretty good. The whole vibe is THE best as a tourist that I have experienced in NOLA! There won’t be any better choices if you are in town for music. The don’t force you to tip because of the entrance fee. They do sell CDs for a vey very reasonable price. All the bands that I experienced are great! It’s well worth the money!My best time are spent here in NOLA! Only wish I could have stayed here for more days and discovered this place earlier!Plus the drinks are not bad.

We saw the Thursday night band on a recent trip to New Orleans, which was really good, and played a respectable variety of traditional jazz tunes. The clarinetist, in particular, was an outstanding player! However, in our three nights passing by the bar, they didn’t really have a band, so it seems to be hit and miss.

The patio was very spacious offering multiple seating options as well outside bar. Which by the way has really cute dude with Slim thug braids who can make helluva Cadillac margaritas. I visited twice while waiting on dj per owner; frank Sinatra was played & killed my whole vibe – didn’t stay long lolYet return visit with live band band & food options plus eye candy & A1 drinks- def will visit again & even peeped all the ppl under the bridge was thick itself but I appreciated the security efforts by club personnel & laws.

Pros:-Aesthetically BEAUTIFUL; Kudos to the architects, so cool. Great design. Exudes contemporary, cool, chic… The place to be!!!-Ample street parking-Stage area, seating area & general congregating area; this place is truly MULTI-PURPOSE!!!! Awesome!!! Lots of area to do different things here there & over there… EVERYWHERE!!!!-Many entry & exit points; this is a plus due to all around parking. You can enter from North, South, East or West, pick your poison.Cons:-Not for large parties/events. I was here for LaToya Cantrells Mayoral Election Watch Party & as I expected the turn out was massive, but not to exceed the maximum occupancy, but it was still VERY HOT. Lack of circulating air? Or just the sheet excitement of the event… Idk; but what I do know is, it was hot indoors on a November night 2017 after 8p 😳 while we were in the middle of a semi-cool front. 🙈🙈🙈-Bartenders were unorganized, confused and super duper slow. Idk if they weren’t anticipating the crowd, but they needed to get it together. The line was literally wrapped from one side of the bar to the other 😳😳😳 who wants a drink after waiting :45 mins? Ehhhhhhh not me. Lol.Because of the event I attended, I will blame the crappy service, yes I said CRAPPY, organization-lacking bartender’s performance on the massive number of folks in attendance; it was was truly maddening. I personally heard several people quietly complaining; I was glad it wasn’t just me that was feeling the effects. That being said, management should’ve really anticipated a larger than normal crowd.I will attend another event here, but I hope by the time I return they will’ve fixed their issues; ORGANIZATION IS KEYMakes me think of a pretty car that sputters when you drive it.

Called on a Saturday night in November and was able to make Sunday 730pm night reservations! We ate the gumbo, crab cake, and jambalaya and all were quite tasty! Jambalaya had both shrimp and sausage and sausage was thinly sliced so you could get shrimp/sausage in every bite! The jazz music was great! The $10 music cover per person that night was worth it!! Unfortunately, service was terribly slow until around 830pm, improving as tables left. The service that night is the only reason for the 4 (not 5) star review.

Amazing spot!! Drinks are delicious and dangerous. My wife and I had a great time listening to Ronell Johnson and his band! From one jazz cat to another… This guy can play and entertain the crowd! Amazing trombonist and chops for days! Amazing solos by all his band members and really draws the crowd in. The establishment is nice, clean and old! Now be aware that they will asked for your Vax Card and mask are required in pretty much anywhere you go! Once seated you can take off the mask and enjoy the show and boy did we! Definitely coming back here again! Great job and another great time in Nawlins!!!

We were in town for the 2019 Essence Music Festival and my wife, being a N.O. girl and me from the mighty Chi – Town, wanted to hear some live music in a more intimate setting. The Music, musicians performing, and featured guest (Tone Tony Toni) was excellent! Very very nice performance even without Raphael Saddiqui! Bar and drink service was absolutely horrendous including long wait times for very marginal drinks served. Great atmosphere with an involved, appreciative, responsive 40 plus crowd! Keep them coming back by hiring a knowledgeable responsive bartender that knows how to prepare drinks! Although we didn’t order food, from what we saw served looked very appetizing! We will be returning as we support African American owned establishments nationwide as African American professionals, it is our responsibility to uplift and assist growth in our own communities!

This is an Amazing place!!!! It opens until 11 which was awesome and the reason I camr in because I had work until 8 and needed a late dinner. Paid 3$ for one of the best shows of my life. Live music, the group is amazing and will kick the tiredness out of you in 5 min. The singer is the best!!! What an amazing lady 😄 everyone was dancing and having a great time on a Wednesday night! I want to move to New Orleans now! 😄 food was amazing, service too. Overall one of the best places I’ve been and I plan to go back when I’m back in New Orleans

Highly disappointed. I payed ~$60 for a 12 person reservation. We did have two more join but they sat at a different table (fair).They refused to split our checks in any way and didn’t tell us this until after. We had some people just get a beer that had to pay $100+. When we asked to split it in a way more fair they refused and made it more complicated than it should’ve been.Music was great. Food was fine. Service was trash. If you’re a big group avoid.

Forget Bourbon St. Head over to Frenchmen Street and hang with the locals. Blue Nile is one of our go to places for live music.Very laid back open bar with a few tables scattered about, but mainly standing room only. They usually have a couple of bands a night with the first show usually free. Bartenders are usually pretty good with service, even when they are packed.And, we recommend trying to catch one of New Orleans hippest trumpet players… Kermit Ruffins.

Required vaccine or recent test. Walked in with a mask and immediately ripped it off like everyone else. The girl walking around with shooters basically forced me to drink some poison. Got soooooooo sick! I asked the girl of there was sugar in the drink cause I’m DEATHLY ALLERGIC, SHE SAID NO. then put it in her mouth then pushed it into my mouth and took advantage of my altered state. As soon as the poison hit my lips I knew it was sugar. I freaking almost died within a few hours. This place ruined my whole night. She lied to me and I got very extremely sick. NOT COOL TO LIE TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE ALLERGIES. NEVER GOING TO THIS PLACE AGAIN. the drinks are literally poison
