Cozy little dive with great music and cheap beer. Definitely worth a visit. There's a taco place across the street, food is amazing so maybe swing over there when you get hungry. I had pork and pineapple tacos, so good.

Did not stay inside long, crowded but the 2 times we walked in excellent music. Decor that you would expect.

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
