Stopped in after dinner and a piano player was in the back bar. We enjoyed that as well as a house punch. Awesome stuff. The main act started after we left so I can't comment on that.

Stopped in here before dinner for a quick drink, which was probably not a good time to visit. The place is probably at it's best when a band is on but not before. The "I'm too cool for you" bartender will barely speak to you...More

We had a blast at the Maple Leaf. We went for the music and got there a little early to make sure we could get in and get a spot at the back bar. The front area near the stage gets very crowded. The bartenders...More

Super cool spot, piano going in the back, great beers in the cooler and on tap, ask the amazing bartenders for suggestions on all the local offerings, there's a band jamming at night. Highly recommend it, great spot

I loved the big brass band that I was able to experience at this bar. It also has plenty of room for standing and a neat outdoor area as well.

If you love music then this is a must. The Jazz band was absolutely amazing on the Tuesday night! There is little to no hospitality though so dont go expecting good service or a classy place. It's definitely more of a dive but once it...More

This place is pretty raw with a door guy who takes pride in being difficult. If you can get past the rawness and the door guy who takes his job way too seriously then you should have a good time. Music is good, drinks come...More

Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the
students living in the area ensure that Uptown and
Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly
fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife

There’s live music every night but generally doesn’t start until 10 or 11. There are some benches along the sides. Their website has info on the music. Love this place.

Stick with your plan. Did you see who is at the Maple Leaf on Wed. night? The New Orleans Suspects. Are you in town for the French Quarter Fest? That'll be a great time.
