Amazing jazz at night! And even a cute little Market on Sunday night. We walked up and down the street that has supposedly taken the place of Bourbon street. I personally loved the music. Lots of energy and fun but a little dirty with the...More

If you're looking for great music and a crowd that isn't focused on getting drunk and puking in the street, then go to Frenchmen Street. Wide variety of music playing in the bars and a much better vibe than the French quarter. We ended up...More

We have frequented Frenchmen St. every time that we have NOLA; however , we have decided after this past time that this is not something that we feel we no longer ‘have’ to do when there, that we can enjoy other clubs to enjoy jazz...More

This area is lots of fun with food and bars, and live music literally everywhere. There are plenty of street shows in addition to the amazing talent you can find in the bar/lounges.

I wouldn't recommended hanging out in this area at night, or at least stay in the bar areas, but during the day it was cool to check out.

Perhaps it is the time of day I visited but this is an active spot for street musicians, home-deprived individuals and general drinking spots.

Increasingly touristy but still lots of locals around, enjoying some great music. You’ll find different types of jazz, from the more freestyle to the more commercial stuff. Very enjoyable to hop from bar to bar. Recommend approaching the street from the South via the French...More

Walked onto Frenchmen and heard a Brass Band playing! Many good clubs and restaurants. Good blues band playing anywhere you go! Will be BACK! Just a more laid back vibe than Bourbon Street.

Loved walking this short street, filled with bars offering free music (just buy a drink) from late afternoon till wee hours. Heard it described as "the way Bourbon Street used to be", before it became too touristy.

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

I didn’t go on day time, but... it’s more about bars and jazz, not sure if it will be fun for a 17 YO. Sorry I couldn’t be of more help! Take the Voodoo tour with him!
