Here are our concierge’s top picks for discovering the New Orleans jazz scene:
Since 1961, Preservation Hall has been the place for New Orleans jazz. It looks like it, too. All wooden interior with intimate closeness, the Hall is a memorable venue for seeing some of the best jazz talent.
Maple Leaf in the Riverbend area of Uptown always feels like a really fun house party. It’s a local favorite for seeing New Orleans legends and newcomers every night of the week. Its humble digs, back patio and social atmosphere are always prime for a good time. World-class jazz and jazz-influenced musicians like John Cleary, George Porter, Jr. and Johnny Vidacovich play the venue regularly.
THE SPOTTED CAT
The Spotted Cat is known for hosting unbelievably talented bands. It’s a limited venue, with a small standing crowd area – and an even smaller stage. However, the petite size makes each event intimate. It’s casual, the drinks are affordable, and it offers authentic New Orleans jazz music.
Snug Harbor on Frenchmen is a classic jazz lounge. Members of New Orleans music royalty, like Charmaine Neville, Stanton Moore and James Singleton are Snug Harbor mainstays. Whether in the mood for low-key vibes or a swinging night out, this intimate, dimly lit space will deliver.
Three Muses, as the name suggests, checks all the New Orleans boxes: music, food and drinks. You’ll find the highest quality versions of all three at this cozy club on Frenchmen Street. Listen to jazz and its variations while enjoying an expertly mixed drink and delicious small plates.
Maison de la Luz is the perfect New Orleans luxury hotel to discover the magic of the New Orleans jazz scene.
