Frenchmen Street

Authentic New Orleans music all night long is all about

It’s around midnight in the Marigny. Neon blinks, a trombone slides and a crowd gathers for another impromptu curbside concert on Frenchmen Street. Frenchmen -- crowded, buzzing and vibrant -- might just be the most consistently musical stretch of asphalt in New Orleans. Its venues offer an array of live performances ranging from traditional jazz to blues to reggae and rock and are, themselves, famous, attracting audiences from all over the world. 

Music

With one trip around the clubs on Frenchmen, you are likely to hear all kinds of music. It’s not the first place most visitors know to go to, but inside the clubs like Snug Harbor, the Spotted Cat, d.b.a and even outside on the street, you’ll hear some of the best live music produced anywhere in the world.

Food

After all that music and dancing, you’ll find a number of late-night eateries that are open along Frenchmen Street and in the adjacent Faubourg Marigny neighborhood. At the end of the night (or even the beginning) this area has plenty of dining options from casual to elegant.
