Pub style, with good beers on draft (not so easy to find in New Orleans), local as well, but rude staff. Cold atmosphere, maybe due also to the formal theatre like set for the live music.

Nice place on Frenchmen street. Not so crowded. Watched the Stooges Music Group (brass band) performing. Really good live music. Need to pay a cover fee for the show. Nice bar with lots of different drinks. Worth it.

Basically get to Frenchmen Street and check it all out. This bar is right next to 30/90 Degrees. Both have outstanding bands playing there. You will forget Bourbon Street once you find Frenchmen Street.

So fun. Great selection of local beer, friendly staff. The music is incredible. I had a blast watching Little Freddie King - it seemed like everyone else did too!! Can't wait to go back.

Try to visit every time I get to NOLA. Always good music, and a fun atmosphere! Highly recommended! One of our favorite New Orleans stops.

At the Frenchmen Street, there is always something to see, somewhere to drink, and a great show to watch. This venue offers in a large spacious area the opportunity to enjoy the band that is playing, with enough space for dancing. The ambience it is...More

DBA is a great venue with superb music utterly destroyed by the attitude and rudeness of the staff that work there. I've worked in bars for years, and never is it acceptable to behave the way these guys (woman, specifically, in this case) do. Seriously,...More

Watched the Treme Brass Band- amazing to watch talented musicians up close. Different bands and types of music every night, great place to go.

Pretty much everything has been said about the bar and the location. And I don’t disagree. Visited the pub on a Thursday afternoon and it was almost empty. Decent selection of local brews on tap. I would visit again...

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
