The center of New Orleans' live music scene, Frenchmen Street boasts a high concentration of nightclubs, most of which offer free admission to their nightly concerts. Still relatively unexplored by casual tourists, the street's clubs and bars stay open into the wee hours of the morning, with a varied music menu that includes jazz, blues, and reggae. The area is home to numerous restaurants, and caters to late-night diners. As you wander down the street, notice the typical New Orleans architecture of single-story Creole cottages and gable-roofed Creole townhouses. This entertainment district is easily accessible from almost anywhere in town, with taxis on constant patrol all through the night, every day of the week. Put Frenchmen Street at the forefront of your travel plans using our New Orleans vacation planner.
Frenchmen Street reviews

As with all of the French Quarter you just need to plan a day to go up and down all of the streets! The shops and food you’ll find will make your sore feet worth it! more »
