We went Tuesday & Wednesday to see "Quarter Note", a very versatile band doing '70s and '80s rocknroll. Very good, keeping the audience well entertained.

This is a normal bar, but has a very good live band- The owner ever got on stage and sang some. The music was geared toward a slightly older crowd 40s and over, but younger groups were also enjoying. They have 2 for 1 drinks....More

We went here on our walk on the Bourbon street for the first time. It is a regular bar with nothing special in it. The band was ok but the sound system was very chaotic. It was really loud and it was difficult to differentiate...More

Very lively joint. Live music on the go constantly. Beers reasonably priced... small dance floor. Great place overall worth a stop.

lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
