Fritzel's European Jazz Pub

Top choice jazz in French Quarter

There's no cover charge at this awesome venue for live jazz, which is so small that you really can't have a bad seat. The seating is kind of rustic: benches and chairs so tightly packed that you'll be apologizing for disturbing people each time you go to the bathroom. But the music is great, everything New Orleans jazz should be.

Among other reasons to take in a set or two here, this is the city's oldest operating jazz club.
