Music in New Orleans

Music in New Orleans begins on Bourbon Street but it doesn't end there. Not by a long shot. There are hundreds of other venues worth checking out. Balcony Music Club is a good place to start your Frenchmen Street club hopping, since it's right on your way (if you're walking from the Quarter), at the corner of Esplanade and Decatur. It's a good-size room for a corner bar and club, and the booking policy includes DJs as well as local acts. Crowds pour into Razzoo Club from the street day and night - it's one of the first to fill and last to empty as Bourbon Street ebbs and flows. Pre-Katrina, the Howlin' Wolf was arguably the premier club in town in terms of the quality and fame of its bookings. Dragon's Den is a sort of hippy den, with pillows on the floor for lounging, but it's transformed after dark into one of the funkiest jazz venues in the city. Stretch your legs and your listening taste and stroll around New Orleans enjoying all the great music the city has to offer.
