We ate at 30/90, which had great food, and a good band playing, then walked through an artists alley that had lots of neat items for sale.

Frenchmen Street is the local's Burbon street. There are multiple bars and clubs with great jazz music every night until the early morning. Not nearly as smelly or dirty as Burbon street.

What a nice place with shops and music. The walk down Decatur to Frenchman is much nicer than Bourbon Street. I sat down in a bar with great music and great drinks, bought some trinkets and looked at the architecture. A MUST VISIT if you...More

Go here and skip Bourbon Street! Great music venues, good restaurants and a quickie cab from the French Quarter area...great time here once again!

Frenchmen Street has at least 8 venues offering music in three sessions from mid afternoon, to early evening, to night shows. In one day we saw two excellent brass jazz bands, a local street music group, and one of the best blues guitarists I've ever...More

If you are looking to get away from Bourbon Street, then Frenchmen Street is the place to go. Located in the Marigny, this is the place where the locals go. There is an art market, great restaurants and good music.

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

Snug Harbor for sure! It might be a bit pricey compared to the walk in to a bar off the street spots available on Frenchman Street, but well worth it. High caliber music, intimate setting, and not an open bar atmosphere... More

Over would not stay on Frenchman. Stay by French markets/ Jackson square then you can walk there to the river etc. It's a quaint little area. That's where I'm going to take my kids

I'm sure they do but there is music on the streets everywhere. Just wander around and talk to a few locals and you''ll be fine.
