Three Live Music Venues You Can’t Miss in New Orleans

There’s more to the Big Easy than great food

Because the music scene is equally thrilling as its culinary one, here are three live New Orleans music venues you can’t miss.

Preservation Hall
Founded in 1961, this intimate mainstay has remained a must-do for tourists and locals like. In addition to live music, this concert venue in New Orleans also serves as a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving and promoting traditional New Orleans jazz.

The Spotted Cat Music Club
Despite the bar’s relatively small size, it packs in local musical favorites including the Cottonmouth Kings and Miss Sophie Lee. Another plus is that all performances have no cover. Don’t forget to bring cash to cover the one drink minimum.

Maple Leaf Bar
Escape the hustle and bustle of the French Quarter, and beeline to this beloved venue located in the city’s Uptown District. There’s rollicking live music every night, but Tuesday nights with the legendary Rebirth Brass Band are practically a local institution.
