When planning a trip to New Orleans, most visitors look forward to indulging in amazing food and listening to some truly exceptional live music. Not only is NOLA regarded as the birthplace, circa the late 19th century, of jazz, but the city has also maintained and expanded upon its diverse, ever-evolving auditory offerings over the past century-plus. This venerable institution crowns the to-do list of NOLA visitors and residents alike. Easily accessible in the heart of the French Quarter, the intimate club hosts rollicking, brassy jazz performances almost every night of the year. A relative newcomer to the scene, The Three Muses opened in and quickly distinguished itself not only for holding its own when its comes to heavy hitting musical acts—hosting lively performances of hot jazz, country and western and piano—but also for its superb food and drink offerings. Dive into a plate of bistro-inflected fare, such as beer-braised pork belly, grab a house cocktail such as the Spaghetti Western bourbon, Campari, rosemary syrup , and soak in the good vibes. This Frenchmen charmer kicks the evening off with early afternoon performances of live local music. The tiny, softly lit bar is mostly standing room, but still manages to pack in area favorites such as the six-member jazz band the Cottonmouth Kings and Miss Sophie Lee, a jazz crooner and co-owner of nearby The Three Muses. Tuesday nights with the Rebirth Brass Band are a floor-stomping citywide institution, while Sunday evenings feature the more laid back Joe Krown Trio.
