We went by taxi very late on a Tuesday during our recent trip to NOLA. We were fortunate that we arrived just as Rebirth was taking a break between sets and got places right in front of the stage. Otherwise, I definitely recommend getting there...More

Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate

Stick with your plan. Did you see who is at the Maple Leaf on Wed. night? The New Orleans Suspects. Are you in town for the French Quarter Fest? That'll be a great time.
