When it comes to live music, New Orleans undoubtedly tops the list as one of the best cities in the nation. On Frenchman Street (just outside The French Quarter), head to The Spotted Cat with live jazz and blues performed on a small stage. Across the street, don’t miss Snug Harbor, part music venue-part restaurant, and live performances nightly. For more music, be sure to visit Tipitina’s, a New Orleans institution since 1977 for everything form jazz to soul. Notable musicians that have played here span the Neville Brothers and Pearl Jam.
Looking for a hotel in New Orleans after a night of live music? Be sure to check out The Royal St. Charles, located only minutes from many of these venues.
