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

My friend and I were in NOLA for my birthday and wanted to go somewhere "local" and this place definitely fit the bill. It is a bit of a hike from the French Quarter, but totally worth it. We went on a Sunday night when they were having a crawfish boil - $10 for all you could eat, there was... More

Every Tuesday, rebirth plays for $20 at the door (which is a bit of a ripoff) that's the staple , along with it being a very old bar and a new Orleans classic it also has a great atmosphere and feels as if you are In the heart of NO , because well... You are. The drinks I had were... More

The bar tender Kiss was awesome. We were told by locals to go there for a drink and then next store for dinner. Both places were great. Kiss even went over and put our name on the waiting list for us. Tuesday nights they have an amazing brass jazz band.

We came here on a Tuesday night to enjoy music and hang out. Great atmosphere and good musicians made this memorable. Easy to talk with people even when you are on your own

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.
