Super cool spot, piano going in the back, great beers in the cooler and on tap, ask the amazing bartenders for suggestions on all the local offerings, there's a band jamming at night. Highly recommend it, great spot

I loved the big brass band that I was able to experience at this bar. It also has plenty of room for standing and a neat outdoor area as well.

If you love music then this is a must. The Jazz band was absolutely amazing on the Tuesday night! There is little to no hospitality though so dont go expecting good service or a classy place. It's definitely more of a dive but once it...More

This place is pretty raw with a door guy who takes pride in being difficult. If you can get past the rawness and the door guy who takes his job way too seriously then you should have a good time. Music is good, drinks come...More

This place was recommended to us for the great music and it was well worth it. Not the greatest looking place but full of character. The venue is not the biggest so try to get there early.

My biggest point here is that all the reviews that say it was too packed in this magical place on a Tuesday either aren't used to any normal music gig, or don't like crowds. It was FINE! We were told my a bar tender in...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
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the
students living in the area ensure that Uptown and
Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly
fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife

There’s live music every night but generally doesn’t start until 10 or 11. There are some benches along the sides. Their website has info on the music. Love this place.

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.
