Cozy little dive with great music and cheap beer. Definitely worth a visit. There's a taco place across the street, food is amazing so maybe swing over there when you get hungry. I had pork and pineapple tacos, so good.

Please support small venues who appreciate customers!!! Don't support bamboulas with actual money. Feel​ free to support the band and buy your booze at a nearby store. They most likely will never know or care. Don't expect service, just move on.

We love the band The Slick Skillet Seranaders! The bar is small but very friendly and cozy. Highly recommended to visit!

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
