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, so come in for a set.

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