Get lost here, awesome food, pleasant people and interesting architecture. A welcome break from the craziness that is Bourbon Street. Found some interesting little shops and great bars for the evening. Well worth a visit.

there are a number of jazz clubs and eateries on Frenchmen st. not nearly as crowded as Bourbon. if you are easily offended then Frenchmen is the place to visit.

If you're looking for good live music, get off of Bourbon Street and go to Frenchmen Street. Lots of places to listen to a variety of music. Some places have cover and some don't but there are limited eating establishment which are usually full and...More

A musical heaven. If you love music and don't mind people and fun, go to Frenchmen Street! You can see six or 7 bands in one night. Many have no cover; it rocks!

Stay away from Bourbon Street and go there instead. I found what I wanted from New Orleans, the music, the arts, the bohemian vibe... just go there. The spotted cat was the place I stayed the longest

Frenchman street has great music without the craziness of Bourbon Street. We watched the St. Patrick's Day Parade there and later went back to listen to music. Either take Urber or the streetcar to the French Market and walk from there.

The music coming from so many bars and restaurants makes it fun to stop and listen in order to choose where to eat or grab a drink. There was also a great artists market open late with unique pieces and souvenirs.

We were very happy to discover Frenchmen Street with the music, bars, and atmosphere we wanted to find in New Orleans.

Very disappointing. Maybe not in light of the hurricane . still a walking type destination that requires some planning on your part.

Awesome live music, much more interesting place than Bourbon St. We visited on a Tuesday night and there was a little night market with vendors selling their handwork. Took home some rad jewelry.

We do remember seeing kids in some of the establishments during the day. They probably sold food also, which may be why they were allowed.

A small word of caution (and a small bit of wonderment about the cooking pets crack). There is a substantial transient population that hangs out along Frenchmen Street and then Decatur Street. Many of these folks travel with... More
