New Orleans' Preservation Hall was established in 1961 to honor one of America's truest art forms - Traditional New Orleans Jazz. Operating as a music venue, a touring band, and a non-profit organization, Preservation Hall continues its mission...more
All reviews big shot standing room reserved seats front row sit on the floor wooden benches second row vip tickets minute set traditional new orleans jazz limited seating no air conditioning great music general admission real jazz talented musicians pat o'briens
Went to see the band on Aug. 21 of 2018. What a let down.
Heard many express their disappointment with the style of music.
If Allen Jaffe were still around I'm quite sure he would give his son Ben
a swift boot to the butt....More
Wonderful selection of real jazz. A bit pricey but a once and well worth going. The musicians were amazing. The audience selected the songs they wished to hear and they just had a wonderful jamming session playing together.
First...buy your tickets as soon as you know what day you will be there. The “big shot” tickets are $40-$50. The general admission is $20 but that may not get you a chair to sit on. You may be sitting on the floor or standing...More
The Big Shot tickets were totally worth it for us: guaranteed good seats with a great line of sight to the musicians; SEATS (otherwise you will likely be standing); staff was informative when we checked in; and no need to line up outside for the...More
Got tickets to listen to the "house" band. They were Awesome! Totally worth the small ticket price. There will be a line about 30 mins before the show starts. Get there early to get a seat, otherwise it's standing room only. Can be a little...More
Decided to catch a performance on my first night in NOLA. Absolute best way to start off my trip. The performers at Preservation Hall were so talented! I thought I wasn’t a jazz fan until I saw them perform. I would highly recommend to anyone...More
My husband wanted to go to the show at Preservation Hall so I said okay and we bought the Big Shot tickets for $50 each. I have bad legs and can’t stand in line for the cheaper tickets. We still had to wait about 15...More
While in New Orleans recently, we were very keen to re-visit Preservation Hall, having first been there 33 years ago. Just as we remember and loved the music. Lined up at 5.30PM, for the 6.00PM show, and got in, no problems. Best Jazz experience in...More
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living 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 across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
I think it is always busy. There are a few benches to sit on, no backs, just flat benches, and cushions on the floor in front. Our grandson sat on them and adults, others stand in the back. It wasn't completely crowded... More
I think it is always busy. There are a few benches to sit on, no backs, just flat benches, and cushions on the floor in front. Our grandson sat on them and adults, others stand in the back. It wasn't completely crowded when we went, but the lines started 45-60 minutes ahead of time. Advance admission is expensive, I think it was $40 and you sit on the same type of benches, you just get to go in first!

Sorry. No info on buying tix online but it was easy to buy at the door if you come early. We were told to come about 30 min. before the show & it was no problem. Just a bit of a warm wait in line but no different than any... More
Sorry. No info on buying tix online but it was easy to buy at the door if you come early. We were told to come about 30 min. before the show & it was no problem. Just a bit of a warm wait in line but no different than any other place in NOLA. It's cash only, no food or drinks sold inside & very small, no a/c either. Seating is cosy,wooden bleacher style. Some sat on the floor in front and along the sides. Unique setting but totally worth it.
