Love this bar! Great jazz performed by a great team of musicians that rotate on different nights. Drinks are a little bit high priced but the service is great. We always make time for this bar when in NOLA.

This is a really fun little bar, with good jazz, right in front of you. The one drink per set is not a bad deal. The bar tender served em up good. Great for bar hopping experience.

A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs

It's just a little more intimate of a setting. I wasn't exactly impressed with it. There's a private bar with low lighting and two different rooms.

They can't get into the bar, but there are lots of other places where jazz bands play. I would suggest a restaurant.

To the best of my knowledge, they begin only at 9 PM. But certainly check the website for more information.
