After arriving in Bourbon Street I wondered what we’d let ourselves in for, but after finding Frenchman Street my worries were settled. It’s not flashy, but the music is varied and down to grass roots, very enjoyable.

We had heard so much about the great places to listen to music along Frenchman street and only found a couple of places that had music and it was only okay not great.

This was my first time in New Orleans and THIS is what I was expecting. Bourbon Street, on the other hand, was a smelly, dirty, place where the music was awful. In my opinion, Frenchmen St is what it's all about.

A real hidden gem in New Orleans. Great clubs, great music, funky settings and offbeat bands and music. Such fun!

We went to see the street and suddenly a band decided to start the party in a corner, and boy, they really know how to play music. Half an hour later, hundreds of people in bicycles with lights in the rims were cruising the road....More

This is THE place to enjoy music. Such a fun and cool vibe. So many different artists. The different clubs are so colorful and interesting. THIS is what New Orleans is about.

Although I didn't spend a lot of time on Frenchmen, I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent there. Great music and cheap drinks.

Beautiful part of NOLA that comes alive in the evening, we enjoyed our last night here and we had so much fun listening to the live bands and bought a few pieces of art from locals. Highly recommend!

Do not go to NOLA and not go here. This is the authentic NOLA, what the quarter used to be like. If you like music you won’t be disappointed...

Unlike bourbon street, which is great people watching and more like a college frat party, Frenchmen St is geared more to those wanting to sit and hear some great jazz music. It gets crowded but nothing like bourbon st and you can really hang out...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

Just walk up and down Frenchman street and peek in each bar and just listen. Every night is different, so the bands, and vibe will be different. It will depend on what you like and what moves you at that moment. There's... More

yes, they are. The music it varies from blues, to jazz, just enough to make you listen, and enough to make you dance.

I didn't make reservations; I went early and got good seats. Many of the cover charges are in terms of one drink or two... not an outrageous charge on top of high priced drinks. OPEN TABLE has a great ap for reservations... More
