We saw Micah McKee and Little Maker and they were awesome. No cover. They had Abita Purple Haze and Amber on tap! We got there early, it wasn't too busy. Got a table easily. Don't forget to tip the musicians!

Live music, a full bar and a dance floor - what else could you ask for? This was another great stop made along Frenchman St. Highly recommend.

We came here after Voodoo Fest and had such a great time. The music, atmosphere, and people made the overall experience amazing. The jazz band (forgot their name) was great and had us dancing nonstop for a while.

We spent most of our evenings on Frenchman Street and enjoyed a band at the Blue Nile. They have plenty of room to dance and enjoy the music, making this a great venue. The variety of music differs from band to band and you can...More

Spent our best evening in NOLA here with some of the best music I’ve ever seen. We were lucky that the Brassaholics were playing whilst we were in town who are simply one of the best. Two bars make getting served OK but it could...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
