Had a great time here. Beverages were affordable and Big Al was a hoot. Got his Blues CD autographed and he was great.

Do you really need to know more? There was a totally awesome blues band playing, and I'm sipping on some whiskey. They let smoking go on in here, but, no cigars. I don't smoke, but, I will deal with a few cigarettes if there are fans blowing or a breeze. The staff here were very nice. Prices were slightly high. But, the blues band was amazing! They rotate bands out every few hours I think. We sat for one set, and I wanted to get on stage and play some harp with this guy. But, I'm probably only good enough to make up one song. Maybe. Okay, sit back down.

We were lucky enough to see Big Al Carson here, if he is playing please don't miss him. I had done some research prior to our visit and knew he was playing so made sure we got there.

This little hideaway has some serious talent! We especially enjoyed Mark & The Pentones; can't stop listening to their disc!! Jamie tended bar and makes the best Margarita's in the city. He was so friendly and helpful. He is a great ambassador New Orleans!!

We always come here to see Big Al Carson. They don't charge to come in but they expect tips. But he is worth it. We have purchased his CD's, he is very entertaining.
