If you're looking for great music in a quieter area this is for you. Great place to visit in New Orleans. family friendly.

Only went there during the day, found it very unkempt. The pavement was very uneven and the bars and restaurants did not look very inviting. We did eat at a place, which specializes in hot dogs. It was OK.

If you really want to see New Orleans, wander around the many little nightclubs/bars with live music on Frenchmen's. We went after the U2 concert, oddly enough, and we were struck by how wonderful it was to see three spectacular musicians playing jazz 10 feet...More

Had multiple people suggest we visit Frenchmen Street. Dimly lit cross streets, bars were unimpressive, music was undesirable. Having said this, I'm quite confident there is good music there, just not while we visited.

A must GO TO place to listen to live music in the different clubs. Music that might give you "happy feet". 🍺🍹🎼🎸🎻🥁🎷💃🕺

I recommend this to anyone visiting New Orleans in order to get a real feel of what Nola has to offer. Great spots along this street and not uncommon to stumble upon an event. The music is always groovin and people are friendly. Definitely recommend!!

Free entry, as the majority of the Bars with entertainment ARE! We had Bar snacks only but most of the patrons WERE having meals. The entertainment was awesome! The Bar WAS on Frenchmen St.

Frenchmen street is fun and you can hear some awesome local Jazz bands. The people were all very friendly.

We found the some of the best food and music on Frenchmen St. It was a little too far from our hotel to walk but an easy Uber ride. This is where the locals go rather than the French Quarter - highly recommend it.

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

Snug Harbor for sure! It might be a bit pricey compared to the walk in to a bar off the street spots available on Frenchman Street, but well worth it. High caliber music, intimate setting, and not an open bar atmosphere... More

Over would not stay on Frenchman. Stay by French markets/ Jackson square then you can walk there to the river etc. It's a quaint little area. That's where I'm going to take my kids
