Want more to experience more of NOLA? Real NOLA? Get out of Bourbon street take a cab over to P-Town and go straight to the Maple Leaf! Won't look like much from the outside but you fall in love with its gritty yet chill atmosphere. Tuesdays. Big Brass. Rebirth. Say no more. Just GO!

Went on a Sunday night to see the Joe Krown Trio and both the bar and band were phenomenal. If you are looking for a true, local music experience away from the hustle and bustle this is the place!

Tuesday nights the Rebirth Brass Band plays here. You MUST get there early or expect to stand in a LONG line! This band is phenomenal and they have even played live for the Obama family and won a Grammy! A must see in my opinion if you visit NOLA! Check them out and you wont be disappointed!

This place was great. The music area of the Bar is very small and can be cramped. I went to see George Porter, Jr. on a Monday night. This was some of the best music I've ever heard. Music is kinda loud...if you are sensitive to loud music you may want to bring some ear plugs. But overall the place... More

An incredibly popular band, Rebirth Brass has played at the Maple Leaf Bar every Tuesday since 1990. If you hate full body contact with strangers, wait until after the first set (around 12:15am) to attend. Regulars love to dance and drink and will move in a way that will clear enough dance floor for their special moves. Rebirth is a... More

Visited this venue on a Tuesday evening to watch Rebirth and was completely satisfied. The picture in my head of a NOLA venue before I came was perfectly fulfilled. It was hot, humid, and muggy inside. The drinks were stiff. It was packed. The music was impossibly funky. It was a community affair. It was exactly what I hoped it... More

Went for lunch. Restaurant has a German influence and serves some food in this style. Food and service were good. Price is fair - $18 per person (including tax AND gratuity). Would go back again for sure.

Maple Leaf is well known to have great local musicians in a small setting. You could almost reach out and touch them you can get so close. The bar is nothing fancy to be sure. It's a place to get a standard cocktail or beer and listen to some great music. And very inexpensive. Much better experience than Tipatina's because... More

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighbourhood Profile
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 and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
