“Only stopped for a drink and listen to the music”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

We were told that Frenchman was another part of town for great music. We stopped off for a beer and listened to a duo called 'One Man Down'. We believe they serve food, but we had eaten earlier.
Two excellent musicians with a varied repertoire.

Clean, classy and fun with great music and good drinks. You won't find a ton of locals there yet, but this is a good place worth checking out.

“A welcoming bar on Frenchman's Street”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

I cannot give a review of the food as we only came for the music but we found the nicest people. The bar manager, Alessandro and waitress, Elizabeth were so friendly and fun, we instantly felt like regulars. We were in NOLA for the Jazz Fest in April and we liked the place so much we came back the next night too. Very good blues band in the the bar on the first night and the next night was a very popular local band in the back concert venue..

“Dont do murder mystery dinner”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

We booked a muder mystery dinner through groupon and paid half price. Had i paid full price i would have been very upset. I didnt find it worth the half price. It was chaos getting seated. The very small salads were already on table with cold bread. No water or drinks. The dressing was a peanut dressing and it was the only choice. It took us half hour to get a drink and butter for cold hard bread. We asked for extra bread and butter and it took forever but the bread was hot. The meals were small portions and so was the bread pudding desert. I was still hungry. Drinks were not included and it was 5.50 for 2 cokes plus tip ofcourse
